Nuts for Life is Australia’s voice for the vital role nuts play in good health and nutrition.

They help busy health professionals stay up-to-date on evidence-based news and research on nuts, sharing why eating a handful (or 30g) of nuts every day is essential to the health of all Australians.

Regular nut consumption offers major health benefits, being linked with reduced all-cause mortality, and a lower risk of dying from heart disease and cancer – which claim the lives of too many Australians. And decades of research shows eating nuts is not linked with weight gain.

Nuts for Life is funded by the Australian nut industry and the Australian Government, through Hort Innovation Australia’s ‘Hort Frontiers Healthy Food Fund’.

Australian Avocados are currently working with the health professional community to amplify the benefits of including more avocado in the everyday diet.

This project has been funded by Hort Innovation, using the avocado research and development levy and contributions from the Australian Government. Hort Innovation is the grower owned, not-for-profit research and development corporation for Australian horticulture.
