Key benefits of almonds

Almonds are rich in vitamin E and are a useful source of calcium. It may help reduce the risk of heart disease and can also lower blood cholesterol levels.

How much almonds should you eat?

Almonds are high in monounsaturated fat and calories. Generally, between 25g and 50g are recommended, especially for the age group between 11 and 24 years. 100g of almonds provide almost one fifth of an adult's daily calorie needs.


Maximising the benefits of almonds

Unblanched almonds are the healthiest. If almonds need to be toasted, they can be gently heated in an ungreased frying pan for one to two minutes.
