BENEFITS OF ALMONDS

THE BEST NUT AROUND

When compared ounce for ounce, almonds are the nut highest in protein, fibre, calcium, vitamin E, riboflavin and niacin.

ANTIOXIDANT POWERHOUSE

Almonds’ way-above-average vitamin E content makes them an antioxidant powerhouse. Just one ounce of almonds contains 50% of the Daily Value for vitamin E. ​

FIBRE

Almonds contain both soluble and insoluble fibre. Its insoluble fibre adds bulk to your diet, helping move things along your digestive tract. Soluble fibre can help lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and control blood sugar levels.

Both types of fibre have been shown to be helpful in weight maintenance, too, helping you feel full, so you eat less and stay satisfied longer

MAGNESIUM

Almonds are one of the best food sources of magnesium, offering 20% of the Daily Value in a one-ounce handful. Research continues to look into the beneficial role of magnesium in high blood pressure and heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis.

PROTEIN

There are 6 grams of almond protein packed into every ounce of almonds which provides fuel for your body. As a plant-based protein, almonds are also low in saturated fat and may help maintain healthy cholesterol levels as part of a heart-healthy diet.
