Almonds are the edible seeds of Prunus dulcis, more commonly called the almond tree. They are native to the Middle East. But the United States is now the world’s largest producer menu.

The almonds you can buy in stores usually have the shell removed, revealing the edible nut inside. They are sold either raw or roasted ทางเข้า UFABET

They are also used to produce products like almond milk, oil, butter, flour, paste, or marzipan.

Almonds boast an impressive nutrient profile. A 1-ounce (oz), or 28-gram (g), serving of almonds contains :

  • Fiber: 3.5 g
  • Protein: 6 g
  • Fat: 14 g (9 of which are monounsaturated)
  • Vitamin E: 48% of the daily value (DV)
  • Manganese: 27% of the DV
  • Magnesium: 18% of the DV
  • a decent amount of copper, vitamin B2 (riboflavin), and phosphorus

This is all from a small handful of almonds, which has 164 calories and 6 grams of carbohydrates, which includes 3.5 grams of fiber.

It is important to note that your body does not absorb about 6% of the fats in almonds. Because this fat is inaccessible to digestive enzymes.

Almonds are also high in phytic acid, a substance that binds certain minerals and prevents them from being absorbed by the body.

While phytic acid is generally considered a healthy antioxidant, it also slightly reduces the amount of iron, zinc, and calcium your body absorbs.

Almonds are a fantastic source of antioxidants.

Antioxidants help protect against oxidative stress, which can damage molecules in your cells and contribute to inflammation, aging and diseases like cancer.

The powerful antioxidants in almonds are largely concentrated in the brown layer of their skin.

For this reason, blanched almonds — those with skin removed — have less antioxidant capacity. This means they may not offer the same anti-inflammatory capabilities.

A 2022 analysis of 16 clinical trials including over 800 participants found that eating up to 60 g (about 2.25 oz) per day. Reduced two different markers of inflammation in the body.

These findings support those of another study. Which found that eating 2 oz (56 g) daily for 12 weeks reduced markers of inflammation among a group of over 200 participants between ages 16 and 25.
