Almonds are our favourite type of nut. It is a delicious and nutritious one. That’s why we have decided to share with you the health benefits of almonds and why it’s the number one superfood on the planet.
- They are really Nutritious
Almonds are rich in healthy fats, they contain important nutrients like magnesium, Vitamin E and B vitamins. They are mainly a monounsaturated fat and therefore beneficial to your health. Monounsaturated fats can help protect against metabolic syndromes and help your body use fat appropriately.
- Full of Antioxidants
Also, Almonds contain a number of antioxidants including one that makes our skin glow. What is all of this talk about vitamin E? Vitamin E is an antioxidant, it aids in reducing the rate at which cell-damaging processes occur. Also, vitamin E dissolves in fat and is required for the proper functioning of many of our body’s organs. A study showed that: “eating almonds can significantly boost levels of vitamin E in the diet and bloodstream”.

- Cleaner Almonds- Pesticide and Propylene Oxide (PPO) Gas Free
Almond milk is becoming more and more popular, but some brands use almonds treated with PPO Gas. Conventionally, almond growers used PPO to pasteurize their almonds. PPO is banned in several countries. PPO presents health risks to almond growers and almond milk consumers.
At Almo, we use Australian sourced almonds from the Australian Almond Co-op and locally grown almonds that are not fumigated with PPO Gas and are pesticide-free.
