- Protein is one of the three main macronutrients—fat and carbohydrates round out the trifecta. Protein provides energy, helping you power through that meeting marathon at work. Protein also contributes to the development and maintenance of muscle mass and assists in the maintenance of healthy bones, helping you power through that actual marathon (if that’s more your thing). Almonds are a source of lots of other nutrients that contribute to the normal energy-yielding metabolism, including calcium, copper, magnesium, manganese, riboflavin, iron, niacin, phosphorus and thiamine.
- A handful of almonds provide 6 grams of protein, 3.7 grams of fibre and 9 grams of “good” monounsaturated fats to keep you feeling energised and delectably satisfied.
- If you like to mix things up, other almond forms such as almond butter and almond flour also contain protein.
- It’s pretty common knowledge that nuts can be a source of plant-based protein, but not all nuts are created equal. When compared gram for gram, almonds are the tree nut highest in protein*.
*Almonds are the tree nut highest in protein when compared with Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, pecans, pistachios, and walnuts.
