Why Almonds

Almonds are one of the world’s healthiest foods; high in protein and Omega 3’s; plus a host of essential vitamins and minerals.  Our almonds have a long shelf life and are packaged for easy distribution.

From the California Almond Board:

Nutrient Dense:

“When it comes to nutrients, California Almonds really know how to shine.  Ounce for ounce, they’re one of the most nutrient-rich tree nuts on earth and just a handful of them a day is a great way to ensure you’re getting more of the good things your body needs and you want.

California Almonds are an excellent source of vitamin E, magnesium, manganese, and a good source of fiber, copper, phosphorous, and riboflavin.  Plus, a one-ounce serving has 13 grams of good unsaturated fats, just 1 gram of saturated fat, and is always cholesterol free. And when compared ounce for ounce, almonds are the tree nut highest in protein, fiber, calcium, vitamin E, riboflavin, and niacin. Talk about a petite package packing a powerful punch.”

Antioxidant Rich:

“Do you know which type of vitamin E the human body absorbs best? It’s called alpha-tocopherol vitamin E and lucky for you, California Almonds are one of the leading food sources of this important antioxidant. It can help neutralize nasty free radicals in your body and help you feel your best day
and night.

So what are free radicals? They’re unstable molecules that form as your body burns oxygen. Free radicals can damage your cells, tissues, and even your DNA. And researchers believe this process may contribute to the development of some chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

Data shows that most Americans get only half of their recommended vitamin E per day and almonds are the ideal way to close that gap. In fact, just one ounce of almonds (about 23) contains 35% of the Daily Value for vitamin E. Not too shabby.

Plus, in a study published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry, experts found that almonds contain flavonoids and phenolics in their skins similar to certain fruits and vegetables. For example, a crunchy one-ounce serving of almonds contains a similar amount of total polyphenols as one cup of green tea and ½ cup of steamed broccoli—certainly something to smile about.
