WHAT ARE WHOLE ALMONDS?
Whole Almonds are a delicious, delicately flavoured seed (yes, they are in fact seeds of the fruit of the almond tree) that are synonymous with health and well-being. This is unsurprising, as they are one of nature's richest sources of health-promoting nutrients. BULK POWDERS® Whole Almonds are skin-on, unroasted and unsalted – ensuring they are completely raw for maximum nutritional benefit. Edible straight from their foil-fresh pouch, not only do Whole Almonds taste great, but they make a perfect snack for any time of the day.Whole Almonds are a delicious, delicately flavoured seed (yes, they are in fact seeds of the fruit of the almond tree).

Whole Almonds are a great source of natural energy, whilst also being extremely calorie dense (612 Kcal per 100g). This makes them an ideal snack; whether between meals or on the go. One common misconception is that the high calorie content in Whole Almonds results in weight gain. There is no actual evidence of this, and there has even been evidence that nut-rich diets result in weight loss. This could be due to them kick starting your metabolism and also help towards feeling full.

Why Buy Whole Almonds
Whole Almonds are a great source of dietary protein, providing over 21g per 100g. Protein is key to growth and recovery, whilst also helping to increase satiety (the feeling of fullness).
Whole Almonds are also rich in monounsaturated fatty acids (such as Oleic Acid and Palmitoleic Acid) as well as other essential fatty acids (such as Linoleic Acid). These are 'good fats', which help to lower bad cholesterol and increase good cholesterol.
As with all nuts and seeds, Whole Almonds also provide an array of key nutrients. Most significantly they are an impressive source of Vitamin E – a powerful antioxidant, which helps protect against cell damage caused by free radicals. They also contain high levels of B Vitamins, which promote energy, and minerals such as Manganese, Potassium, Calcium, Zinc, Magnesium, Iron and Selenium.
Whole Almonds are also Gluten Free, making them ideal for people with wheat allergies or Coeliacs.
WHO ARE WHOLE ALMONDS SUITABLE FOR?
Whole Almonds can be eaten straight from the foil fresh pouch or, alternatively, can be added to a number of other foods to increase the protein, monounsaturated fat and vitamin and mineral content.Disclaimer: Implied results may vary.
