Natural Almonds, 1 lb bag
Our California unblanched Almonds are delicious and nutritious. Almonds have more dietary fiber and calcium than any other nut. Almonds are also an excellent source of Vitamin E and Magnesium. They are a source of dietary fiber, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Iodine, Zinc, Copper and Potassium plus 18 of the 20 amino acids needed for healthy growth.
* The mandatory California Almond Pasteurization program requires all almonds to be pasteurized before retail sale. There are different pasteurization processes approved. Our Almonds are pasteurized using the steam process. These treatments are surface treatments only. Short bursts of steam do not impact the nutritional integrity of the almond. These treatments do not cook proteins or destroy vitamins and minerals. The nutritional and sensory characteristics of the almond remain unchanged when treated with steam.
According to the FDA "Scientific evidence suggests but does not prove that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, such as Almonds, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease".
Almonds are the king of the nut family and taste great. They are the only alkaline nut, all other nuts are acid forming in the body.
Almonds can be soaked in water for 4-8 hours to help soften for easy digestion.
