Organic EDEN Roasted Almonds are California family certified organically grown whole almonds, gas fire roasted at Eden's AIB rated Superior, Michigan facility.
Organic EDEN Roasted Almonds are an excellent source of magnesium and a good source of fiber and protein. They are cholesterol free. Although high in fat, they are low in saturated fat and offer 7g of beneficial monounsaturated and 3.5g polyunsaturated fats.
Roasted nuts are usually highly salted with poor quality refined salt, and/or oil roasted in very bad quality oil. Organic EDEN Roasted Almonds are dry roasted with their skins intact and there is absolutely nothing added to them. They are non-pasteurized and contain no added oils, coloring agents, or preservatives.
There are notable health benefits associated with almonds. Tufts University in Boston found that most of the nutrients in whole almonds and their skin, when taken together, offer significantly higher protection than when the skin and meat of the almond are not consumed together. University of California, Davis confirmed this, showing antioxidant compounds in almond skin and their vitamins provide positive health benefits when eaten with the meat of the almond. At Kings College in London research shows we get less fat from almonds than was previously thought. The study shows the cell wall of the almond may play an important role in the way the body absorbs the fat of the almond, since chewing almonds breaks down the cell wall, but at the same time leaves some of the almond intact. Dr. Karen Lapsley, senior nutritionist for the Almond Board of California says, "This is exciting new research. Because some of the almond remained intact, not all of the fat was released for digestion. This suggests that almonds may be a lower calorie food than suspected because not all of the calories from fat are absorbed."
Organic EDEN Roasted Almonds are great snack food and more. Ground or chopped they are common in and on desserts, breads, and pastries. Coarsely chop and toss a handful into pasta stir fries, pasta salads, raw salads, fruit and Waldorf salads, pilaf, tabouli, wild rice, grain dishes, and hot and cold cereals.
