Calories in Walnut Oil

Calories in Walnut Oil

One Tablespoon contains 120 calories. The energy value is chiefly due to its fat content.

Walnut Oil for Heart Health

This lipid contains beneficial polyunsaturated properties which can help in lowering high cholesterol. This type of cholesterol in the body serves to clog arteries and jeopardize heart health.

The breakdown of the fat distribution for walnut oil per Tablespoon is as follows:

Polyunsaturated Fat = 8.6 grams
Monounsaturated Fat = 3.1 grams
Saturated Fat = 1.2 grams
Total Fat = about 14 grams

Cholesterol = 0 grams
Phytosterols = 24 mg's

Phytosterols are close to the human body's cholesterol. When foods containing phytosterols are consumed, they compete with cholesterol for absorption in the body's digestive system which is a very good thing. Plant-based foods are wonderful in combating the negative effects of non-plant-based foods.

Where to Purchase

Walnut oil is typically imported so check the specialty shops. However, as popularity grows, I have seen it appearing in a few of our local markets in the Dallas-Fort Worth areas of North Central Texas.
