Chestnuts are precious both for the beauty of their trees, belonging to the Fagaceae family and very common in Southern Europe, and in Italy in particular, and for their properties and qualities. Within a large brown and sturdy skin, there is an extraordinarily rich pulp.

The best Italian chestnuts are cultivated in six places. In particular: Cuneo (Piemonte), Combai (Veneto), Marradi (Tuscany), Vallerano (Lazio), Montella (Campania, Avellino area), Roccaspide (Campania, Cilento area). There are many chestnut trees and chestnut varieties. These varieties depend mostly on the places where they are cultivated.
Since chestnut contain a lot less water compared to other fruits, and since they are full of carbohydrates, they are an excellent replacement for bread, pasta and flour. Chestnut are ideal for people suffering from celiac disease, since they are gluten free.
We often think that “chestnut” and “marrone” are synonyms, but it isn’t so. Chestnuts come from wild trees, while marroni come from cultivated and grafted trees.
This fruit has a high caloric value (174 kcal/100 gr) but it is low in fat: 100 g of chestnuts contain just 1.7 gr of fat, including polyunsaturated fat belonging to the Omega 3 and Omega 6 family.
At the same time, they contain various minerals and vitamins, such as Vitamin B, E, and K, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese.
Their high caloric value is very useful for Autumn and Winter to recovery. They contain fibres that stimulate bowel movements.
