Chinese New Year, also called Lunar New Year, is the most important festival of the year. On New
Year’s Eve or the day before New Year, all family members will gather and enjoy a reunion dinner
Since it is the last meal of the year, every dish they have will be meticulously prepared and
must come with fortunate meanings giving them prosperity in the year ahead. Some of the popular
dishes have nuts as main ingredients such as Five-treasure fried rice and Eight-treasure fried rice.
Being an auspicious symbol, nuts are representing prosperity, longevity, and sustainability. One such example is peanut snack bar whose shapes are resembled gold bars signifying fortune. Heritage, Thailand’s leading manufacturer and distributor of healthy and natural food such as nuts, grains, dried fruits, and premium ingredients for cooking, would like to introduce 5 favorable nuts including almonds, pistachios, walnuts, macadamias, and cashew nuts for Chinese New Year.

nut of all. It helps in preventing diabetes and maintaining the level of cholesterol, and it
contains good cholesterol (high-density lipoprotein) as well. At present, almond milk is easy

2. With high protein and fiber, pistachio nutsare suitable for people who want to lose weightand
they can help you feel full for longer and eat less during meals.

4. Known as the king of nuts, macadamias are enriched with nutrition and antioxidants such as
flavonoid and vitamin E which help reduce inflammation and cholesterol and prevent damage
