Hazelnut paste can be ordered with delicate or strong roasting. On Nutman production lines, roasting is done using state-of-theart ovens. This process subjects the hazelnut to high temperatures that involve a transformation of the nut: a decrease in its humidity, an intensification of its colour, and enhancement of its flavour and aroma. At the end of this process the hazelnuts are examined using a bichromatic sorter that eliminates any residual shell and any nuts with imperfections. After selection phase, the roasted hazelnuts of the best IGP, TGT, and Italian varieties are vacuum-sealed in bags. To satisfy every decoration and flavouring need, Nutman offers chopped crunch of different sizes: 2-4 mm Hazelnut Granella, 1-2 mm Hazelnut Granellina, and 5-8 mm Hazelnut Granellona. Hazelnut flour is made by sifting the chopped hazelnuts and is available in vacuum-sealed bags of 1 kg, 3 kg and 5 kg. 155
