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. Just one serving provides 28% DV* of vitamin E.
