Why Almonds are good for you - Almonds Surface As "The Real MVP"

Recognized as one of the world's most nutritious foods, years of research have shown almonds to offer many benefits for good health. High in plant protein, fiber, magnesium, unsaturated fats and much more. They are the perfect addition to any diet. 

Not only have almonds been formally recognized by the new Canada Food Guide, they’re packed with the antioxidant vitamin E. “This is important because antioxidants help prevent your body from the stress of free radicals, which can lead to disease,” Johane M. Filemon, MS, RDN, says.

We love this Mediterranean nut so much because it has such a neutral profile. It is the perfect carrier of flavours, whether used for sweet or savoury dishes or treats, the versatile almond nut can do it all.
