Almonds
Almonds

Almonds are nuts that grow on a Prunus dulcis, a tree that is commonly called the almond tree which is native to Middle East, India (known there as Badam), but is grown now in many parts of the world including California. The almonds that are sold in most stores have the shell removed, revealing the edible nut inside sold either raw or roasted.

Nutritional information

Almonds, and most other types of nuts, are rich sources of protein but they also have some carbohydrates. About half-ounce of nuts is an “ounce-equivalent” of protein foods. So if you eat a full ounce, that’s two ounce-equivalents, or about a third of the protein you need that day. The USDA's food guidelines recommend about half an ounce a day of nuts.
