Production & Sourcing
First, raw hazelnuts undergo blanching, a technique that involves briefly immersing them in hot water. This loosens the skin, making it easier to remove. The hazelnuts are then peeled to eliminate the outer skin. Once peeled, they are diced into small, uniform pieces. These diced hazelnuts are blanched to ensure their freshness and to maintain their light color.
