Good source of protein and ideal for a healthy snack. So why almonds over any other nut? Almonds are actually the most nutritionally dense nut, meaning they offer the highest concentration of overall nutrients per calorie and per gram. A 28.35 g serving contains 161 calories, nearly 13 grams of unsaturated fat and 3.4 grams of fibre (that’s about 14% of the daily recommended value). What’s more, almonds are a good source of potassium, calcium, vitamin E, magnesium, phosphorous, and iron. Now that’s something to go nuts over!
