To keep bodies, and especially hearts, in the best shape possible, it’s important to maintain a healthy weight.1 That’s why integrating almonds into your products or recipes is not only a smart choice, but also a truly satisfying one.
- An ounce of almonds provides 3.5 grams of fiber, “good” monounsaturated fat, and 6 grams of protein.2
- Almonds are even considered a good fit with many popular weight-loss plans such as Weight Watchers, the Mediterranean Diet, and the South Beach Diet.
- They offer key benefits to anyone trying to shed a few pounds; fewer calories for more nutrients; crunch; and undeniable tasty flavor.
- A one-ounce serving (about 23 almonds) is an excellent source of three nutrients and 100% cholesterol free—all for a measly 160 calories.
So try bringing a little extra flair to your kitchen with some deliciously desirable California Almonds. They’re the simple way to please even the pickiest palates and maybe even help tip the scales in your favor.
1. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recognized almonds with a health claim in 2003, touting: 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.
2. Good news about good fat: U.S. Dietary Guidelines recommend that the majority of your fat intake be unsaturated. One serving of almonds (28g) has 13g of unsaturated fat and only 1g of saturated fat.
