Walnuts contain a number of neuroprotective compounds including vitamin E, folate, omega- 3 fats and antioxidants that support brain health, protect heart and improves digestive system. Globalization has changed the economic, political, social and cultural system of nations across the globe. Phenomenon like urbanization, growing middle class, westernization, working parents etc. has contributed to the fast growth of walnut processing industry. There is a lot of interest in nuts globally and demand for walnut kernels is increasing and a lot more potential for value added products Presently in Jammu and Kashmir walnuts are mostly consumed as fresh in the form of walnut kernels and some broken kernels are being used by baking industry for development of walnut pastry, a novel product of Kashmir.

The sensory scores on basis of colour, flavour, taste, body and overall acceptability was judged on five point organoleptic scale.
