I thought that too when I was reading the article, but all Diamond Foods did was to advertise the truth about walnuts on their packaging. Well, the
truth according to the scientific method which is the method that is used by the FDA (yeah right!). So to say that the label places the walnut in a
drug category is to say that the walnut is a drug. If I were to print on a bottle of sodapop that it aids digestion, and nothing else, then does that
make it a drug?
Can aid minor digestive troubles
Ingredients: Water, HFCS, Colour 120, Flavour 345
Walnuts are the oldest tree food known to man, dating back to 7000 B.C. The walnut was first cultivated in California by the Franciscan Fathers in the
late 1700s. Looks like the US is the third largest walnut producer in the world, so I would expect Americans to know what they are and that they are a
food. It isn't like you Diamond Foods was trying to sell gingko nuts or something. I agree that FDA is not trying to take people's nuts but they are
trying to supress the consumption of them as a health imparting food.
I am wanting to add walnut and hazelnut oil to my range, currently I am waiting for a guy who has a seed oil press to crush my nuts....
