Healthy Bites : Almond

A bowl of almonds on a table

Almonds are a high-fat food, but they are largely a monounsatur.ated fat which helps to protect the heart.

They are a great source of fibre and protein.

They contain important nutrients including vitamin E, selenium, zinc, calcium, magnesium and B vitamins, especially folate and biotin (vitamin B7).

20g-50g almonds a day for adults could be beneficial as part of a balanced diet.
