Hazelnuts are not just a modern delicacy, they have been part of the human diet for thousands of years. Archaeological remains from European sites have shown that ancient hunter-gatherers regularly consumed hazelnuts. In particular, large quantities of charred hazelnut shells have been found at an archaeological site in Scotland dated to around 8,000 years ago. These findings suggest that hazelnuts were a staple food for prehistoric populations in the region, probably due to their high energy density and healthy fat content.
