Medical tests show that almonds can lower the risks of heart problems. These are nonpareil supreme raw almonds, some of the finest out there! A one-and-a-half ounce handful of almonds is a leading source of vitamin E and magnesium and offers protein, fiber, potassium, calcium, phosphorus and iron.
Almonds are also the leading source of monounsaturated fat among the worlds most consumed nuts. Of the 14 grams of total fat found in one ounce of almonds, about 64 percent is monounsaturated.
This 'good' fat plays a role in helping almonds lower harmful cholesterol just as effectively as expensive drugs, according to a recent study published by the American Heart Association. Additional Information: There may be some hard almond shells inside of a bag.
