Historians agree on the fact that almonds were one of the first cultivated food and one of the two seeds mentioned in the Holy Scriptures, together with pistachios. Almonds belong to the same family of cherries, plums and peaches. Ideal for cooking dry cakes or salty recipes, such as pasta with almonds and ham, and for garnishing salads.
Almonds are oil-rich seeds, containing vitamins and mineral salts. They keep the heart’s arteries and the bones healthy. Excellent as a snack.
Almonds especially boast a high content of vitamin E (more or less 24 mg per hectogram), vitamin A, group B (B1, B2, B3, B5 and B6), beta carotene and lutein.
Almonds prevent cardiovascular diseases, they strenghten teeth and bones and they contrast anaemia. Extremely rich in proteins (in average even more 20%) and they are a excellent food substitute for animal proteins.
