Do any of the common nuts (peanuts, cashews, almonds, etc.) have omega 3's, or just walnuts? How much omega 3's is in 1oz of walnuts?

In brief: Nuts & omega 3

Tree nuts contain omega 3 in the form of Alpha linolenic acid.
1oz of walnuts, a handful, contains 2.5g of omega 3 much higher than in most other nuts containing less than 0.5g. 1oz of walnuts also provides 4g of protein, 2g of fiber, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant phytonutrients, minerals and vitamins.
