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.
Fast post and easy transaction. I use these for making my breakfast milk and my smoothies every morning which I drink throughout the day...I only buy raw whole almonds as I want all the goodness from the nut…. these are as good as any I've had but at a slightly better price and fast delivery. I've no hesitation in purchasing these on a regular basis from Whole Foods Online Ltd.
The first bag of almonds I ordered never arrived, despite the delivery info saying it had been handed to me, however when I complained they were replaced no problem, and I was pleased with the quality so ordered more. My second bag however came in slightly different packaging to the picture shown here. Sadly the nuts are very dirty, they seem to have a dark gray dust all over them that needs washing off, which isn't ideal if you want a quick snack on the go and don't want to have to dry a load of nuts before you go out. I'm constantly telling myself that the chunks missing from the majority of the nuts are not little teeth sized holes either...! I'm still eating them however, and they taste okay, but I don't think I'll be ordering anymore sadly.
