HAZELNUTS-

Hazelnut is used as an enhancement ingredient in many high quality confectionery and bakery products, as well as ice-creams and salted snack mixes. Turkey is the largest producer of hazelnuts in the world. Hazelnuts grow wild in many parts of the United States, but are grown commercially in Oregon and Washington.

Hazelnuts are sorted into 6 sizes. The number of kernels per ounce determines hazelnut sizes. Hazelnuts are sorted into 2 grades. The two grades of hazelnuts are Oregon No. 1 and Oregon Whole and Broken.
