Almonds were first found in the Mediterranean area and then transplanted to California. I have been eating almonds almost daily for several years.
"The almond is a nutritionally dense food and is a rich source of vitamin E. They are also rich in dietary fiber, B vitamins, essential minerals such as magnesium, copper, manganese, calcium, and potassium as well as monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats. Potential health benefits, which have not been scientifically validated, include improved complexion and possibly a lower risk of cancer. A preliminary trial showed that using them in the daily diet might lower several factors associated with heart disease, including cholesterol and blood lipids." Wikipedia
This almond is natural, nutritional, and considered to be the finest tasting, most expensive variety of almond grown in California. It’s light color, smooth skin and flavor delivers a snack with zero trans fat and zero cholesterol. A one ounce single serving makes the ideal daily snack portion! These almonds had the best overall rating for any almond. Taste wise it is the best. Use 1-ounce bags are perfect for a daily snack. This is one of the best buys I have found. I take several packs out a day, and have the almonds for snacks. I keep a pack or two in my bag, and I always take them on vacation. One of the best buys from Amazon.
