Specialty Peanut and Tree Nut Products
A Golden Opportunity to Go Nuts Over
Serving NUTrition to the World ™
More consumers than ever identify as flexitarian, either for health or environmental motivations. They are also motivated by a desire for simple, clean, sustainable, traceable and naturally sourced ingredients, packed with protein—one-third of all food and beverage occasions involve a desire for protein, both food and beverages. If that protein is nutrient dense, delicious and convenient, all the better.
Capture your share of the market by going a little nuts. Golden’s peanuts, peanut flours, oils and extracts work in just about everything—beverages, nutritional bars, protein-enhanced snacks or shakes, confections, baked goods, dressing and sauces, and even pet treats. Because we are more than just peanuts, we also offer a wide range of tree nuts and nut butters, perfect for alternative dairy solutions and nutrient-dense snack applications.
From flavor to aroma and performance to shelf life, we can help you solve your plant-based protein challenges through our clean label peanut and tree nut products, with quality control, formulation expertise and a reliable supply chain second to none.

Peanut flour helps bind fat in confections and baked goods, offers a lower-fat alternative to whole peanuts and provides an extended shelf life. When choosing the right peanut ﬂour for your application, two important factors to consider are the fat/protein combination and the intensity of the roast. The right combination will help you achieve the desired nutrition and ﬂavor attributes. We offer:
- 12% fat level in light, medium and dark roasts with between 40 – 50% protein
- 28% fat level in light and dark roasts with 40 – 50% protein
- Also available in organic: 12% light roast and 28% medium roast
Our Gold Nut 20 Peanut Extract is a dark amber, high-oleic peanut oil that delivers a robust, consistent roasted peanut ﬂavor and aroma. It’s produced by mechanically pressing dark roasted peanuts, resulting in an all-natural, solvent-free extract with a clean label. Typical usage rates range from 2-4%, making it a cost-efficient option for bars, baked goods, confections, cereals, dressings and more.
Roasted Aromatic Peanut Oil
Golden Premium Peanut Oil is made from U.S. high-oleic roasted peanuts which are mechanically pressed for a rich, roasted peanut ﬂavor and aroma. Golden in color, it offers a high-quality, trans fat-free alternative for cooking oils. It also adds natural peanut ﬂavor to salad dressings, soups and frozen dairy desserts, bars and more.
Refined Peanut Oil
Peanut oil is widely considered one of the healthiest cooking oils available because it is low in saturated fats, naturally free from trans-fats and cholesterol. It’s excellent for frying and offers excellent stability and a pleasant flavor profile.
We offer raw peanuts in an array of types and forms, including Runner peanuts (the most commonly grown peanut) to the Spanish peanut (smaller, ‘nuttier’ in flavor when roasted) and the Virginia peanut (found in gourmet snacks, all-natural peanut butters, and salted roasted in shell applications). Peanut forms can range from In Shell, Red Skins, Blanched, Splits, or Blanched Splits. We source them from the United States, Argentina, and South Africa, with several different grading options.
We offer a variety of nut types from around the world, including almonds, cashews, filberts (hazelnuts), macadamia, pecans, pine nuts, and walnuts. We offer a variety of processing and packaging needs—including dry roasting; oil roasting; salting; dicing; and validated pasteurization.
