Diamond of California® Debuts Nut Coatings, A Keto-Friendly Breading Alternative in Three Flavors Now Available

Diamond of California®, the century-old producer of “Made for Homemade” specialty nuts and pioneer of nut-based products like Nut Pie Crusts and Snack Walnuts, announces today the launch of its newest innovation, Nut Coatings. Available now online and this Fall in-stores nationwide, Nut Coatings (SRP $3.99/5oz bag) are a keto-friendly and low-carb breading alternative crafted with a nut base of walnuts and pecans simply seasoned with herbs, spices, and other real ingredients. Nut Coatings are available in three flavors including Original, Italian, and Ranch, and serve as a true alternative for standard breading in recipes like meatballs, chicken, macaroni and cheese, eggplant parmesan, and more.

In order to create a nut-based breading alternative that can crust, top, and coat, Diamond of California® partnered with its product development team and specialty spice experts to create the perfect texture and flavors that complement meats, fish, vegetables, pastas, and plant-based proteins. Nut Coatings were also tested thoroughly to ensure they could stand up to everyday cooking techniques. Plus, due to the natural oils present in nuts, Nut Coatings adhere without binders like eggs or flour and even perform best when baked or air-fried without the addition of extra fats, allowing for less fat overall and delivering an appealing texture.

“At Diamond of California® we strive to create innovative products that are functional, delicious, and health-conscious,” said Craig Tokusato, CMO of Diamond of California®. “With the rise of keto and plant-based diets, we saw a need for a cleaner breading alternative using what we know best, nuts. Competitors in the space often make their breading products with ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, maltodextrin, and sugars–and bread, of course–so we opted to keep it simple. Our Nut Coatings are made with our own walnuts and pecans as well as real seasonings and ingredients that enhance at-home creations while adding nutritional value.” See HERE for Nut Coatings ingredients versus a leading breading product.

Diamond of California® Nut Coatings are now available nationwide on shop.diamondnuts.com and over the next few months in select locations of major retailers including Albertsons and Publix.

    I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw my first bag of flavored Walnuts, finally flavored walnuts. I love walnuts,but unfortunately I have an allergy to the skin on walnuts, makes my mouth break out in sores. But once they are toasted I hardly ever get a reaction.
    Thank You Diamond Nut.
