Do the shells of nuts (ie. sunflower seed shell) have nutritional value or just the nut itself, and if yes, how much?

Nuts are great sources of fiber, protein, and healthy fats.  Normally, the shell should be taken off the nut prior to eating.  The shell acts as a protective covering for the nut and should not be eaten.  Check out our Nut Nutrition Database for more nutritional information on nuts.
