Almonds are a powerhouse of a variety of nutrients that supports overall health. Ounce for ounce, almonds are one of the most nutrient-dense nuts on earth. Compared to other tree nuts, almonds are highest in fiber, protein, calcium, riboflavin, niacin and vitamin E. In fact, just one 8 oz. glass provides all the nutrition of 30 almonds, including 31% DV of vitamin E. This is an antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage and promotes healthy skin and hair.

This alternative milk is a good source of macro and micronutrients, including:

  • Plant protein

Fact: In 2012, Almond board researchers conducted their first study with whole roasted almonds, which showed that the almonds provided fewer calories than thought. In whole unroasted almonds, 25% fewer calories are absorbed, while roasted almonds offer 17% to 19% fewer calories, compared to the number of calories listed on nutrition labels.

*Percent Daily Value (DV) references how much a certain nutrient contributes in one serving of food in relation to their requirement. 10-19% of DV is considered a good source. 20% or more of DV is considered and excellent source.
