The time consuming pine nut harvest

Pine nuts are not actually nuts, but seeds - just like our sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. The pine cones are collected from pine trees in elaborate manual work. After harvesting, they are then heated in the oven to release their delicious seeds. By the way, this process takes place the very same way in nature, on very warm days when the sun's rays affect the cones. After removing the shell, the pine nuts are cleaned and then dried. With a bit of luck, they will end up in our nut wonderland and soon in your kitchen!

Using pine nuts for cooking and baking

Mild, sweet, buttery, aromatic - pine nuts have a wonderful taste that goes well with both sweet pastries and savoury dishes. You can add them to your vegetable lunch bowl, roast them in a pan and sprinkle them over your salad or make homemade pesto. They also go well in stews, soups or raw, in your muesli. In the large value pack, you have enough options to upgrade a wide variety of dishes. With our organic pine nut butter, you can even spread the little seeds on your bread, or eat them by the creamy spoonful.

Pine nuts or cedar nuts?

If you take a closer look, our organic pine nuts are actually organic cedar nuts. What does that mean? Don't worry, the two species are actually very closely related and have a very similar flavour. The confusion in the terminology stems from the fact that the term "pine nuts" has become widely used in international trade. This is because there are over 100 varieties of the pine tree genus worldwide, while the cedar tree genus only includes three varieties. The genus of our cedar nuts is called pinus siberica and can also be legally referred to as pine nuts. Unlike the famous pinus pinea, it does not originate from the Mediterranean region. But none if this is important when you consider what matters: in terms of flavour, the cedar nut is in no way inferior to other pine nuts and is even more aromatic and intense. So you are definitely making the right choice with our organic cedar nuts!

Ehrlich gesagt finden wir, an den einzigartigen Geschmack der Pinienkerne kommt nichts ran. Falls Du aber mal keine zur Hand haben solltest, kannst Du auch andere Nüsse wie Walnüsse oder Cashews verwenden.

From our point of view, there is nothing to be said against it. However, we recommend that you seek medical advice if you are unsure.
Even though pine nuts belong to the seeds and not to the nuts, you should please seek medical advice if the consumption is suitable for you.

Climate impact

At KoRo, we analyse the greenhouse gas emissions that are produced during the production of our snacks. These include, among other things, CO2, methane and nitrous oxide. Our hard-working sustainability team collects all the information to calculate a value: the so-called CO2 equivalents. We are now passing this information on to you so that you can make informed purchasing decisions and keep an eye on your personal carbon footprint. We also use these valuable findings ourselves, to try to make our supply chains even smarter in the future and monitor our CO2 footprint.

CO₂ emissions by product

To make the work of our sustainability team easier, we have teamed up with the company Cozero. They support us with their decarbonisation software to calculate the CO2 emissions of our products. Our products go through a lot before they make their way into your pantry or snack bowl, so there is a lot to take into consideration: production, packaging, and logistics – to name just the big steps.

CO₂ emission per product in comparison

Would you like to find out how well your favourite snack stacks up against other products in terms of carbon footprint? Say no more! To create comparability, we calculated the CO₂ emissions per 1 kg of our products and compared them with other products that end up on many people's plates every day, such as cheese, tofu, and many more. We also included coffee as a drink for comparison. So no matter if it is your favourite snack or your go-to kitchen product, you are now able to see exactly how it performs in our “CO₂ per kg of product” ranking.

Comparison of CO₂ emissions per product in kg

Disclaimer: Different methods (comparison products) - The CO2 emissions of the non-KoRo products come from a different data source. Therefore, there may be differences between their evaluation method and the evaluation of KoRo products.

Varieties & origins


Pinus armandii

This oval type of pine nuts has a golden coloration which turns into brown towards the tips. These pine nuts have a sweet and buttery taste with a gentle ligneous note, and are normally 7-11 mm long.

Exact figures on pine nut production are not known; this is probably due to the fact that pine nuts are mainly harvested from wild-growing trees, and pine plantations are quite rare. Our world map displays an estimate. The pine trees only bear cones after about 20 years, and those are harvested between October and April. Harvesting the pines is quite complex, as the cones of the trees, which can be up to 30 meters high, are cut from the tree in dangerous manual labour. This laborious harvest results in a high price.

Wir sind Pinienkernjunkies. Leicht angeröstet verfeinern sie

Wir sind Pinienkernjunkies. Leicht angeröstet verfeinern sie Salate, Nudelgerichte und vieles mehr. Die Koro-Kerne sehen gut aus und schmecken. Was drin ist (an Dingen die nicht hineingehören) sieht man ja (leider) nicht. Wir verlassen uns auf die Aussagen des "Koro-Managements". Schön wäre allerdings eine gelegentliche Überprüfung durch Ökotest.

1-3 star reviews 🙃

Leider musste ich feststellen, dass es sich hier nicht um die Samen, also Pinienkerne, handelt sondern um Zedernnüsse. Wer lesen kann ist klar im Vorteil. Der Lateinische Name Pinus Sibirica steht für Zedernnüsse. Pinienkerne heißen auf lateinisch Pinus Pinea. Zudem kommen die Zedernnüsse aus China. Hier gibt es leider bereits mehrere Nachweise dazu, dass sie bis zu wochenlangen Geschmacksstörungen führen können. Also hier ist Vorsicht geboten. Schade, dass man auch bei Koro zwischen den Zeilen lesen muss. Wird fast überall nur noch über den Tisch gezogen. Danke dafür ⭐

Hey, vielen Dank für Dein Feedback. Wir bedauern sehr, dass Du hier ein anderes Produkt erwartet hast. Das die Nüsse aus China kommen, hättest Du allerdings bereits vor Kauf nachlesen können. Ebenso müssen wir die Vorwürfe abweisen, dass es durch dieses Produkt zu Geschmacksstörungen kommen kann. Wenn man sich beließt haben die Nüsse sogar teilweise bessere Nährstoffe. All unserer Produkte werden strengstens geprüft und unterliegen allen Standarts. Wie ich sehen kann ist unser Kundenservice bereits mit Dir im Austausch. Alles Liebe Dein KoRo Team :)



In vielen Gerichten toll einsetzbar

Sehr gute Verarbeitung und gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis

Ich lieb sie vor allem auch für meine Pestos :)

Super Qualität, zu einem absolut fairen Preis

Heerlijk om te genieten door de maaltijd of los uit het handje (licht geroosterd)

Verse biologische pijnboompitten, heerlijk voor door diverse gerechten, van ontbijt, salade en avondmaaltijd. Maar ook heerlijk gewoon om een paar uit het handje te eten. Extra lekker nadat deze even licht geroosterd zijn in de koekenpan, géén olie, alleen maar even kort roosteren en de heerlijkste geuren komen los. in schaaltje, droog doek door pan en pan is weer schoon.

Schön, dass man Pinienkerne auch in größeren Einheiten bekommt

Auch hier nur leise Kritik an der Verpackung, könnte bestimmt auch aus Wachs/Papier sein

Fiona E.


Gute Qualität, guter Geschmack

Gute Größe. Finde dass die Größe im Laden zu klein ist. Würde ich wieder kaufen.
