These Australian Grown Almonds are grown without the use of insecticides and are certified to be free of any pesticide residues. Raw almonds are a scrumptious natural snack and a wonderful ingredient in raw foods, baking, sweet and savoury recipes. They have a sweet, toasty nut flavour and aroma, with a crisp crunchy texture.
Pesticide Free Almonds are high in Vitamin E. Vitamin E helps support heart health, guards against cataracts and cervical cancer and bolsters the immune system. They are also rich in riboflavin or Vitamin B2, which is needed for growth and the repair of tissues. Raw almonds also may help the body to maintain a healthy weight. Aside from other great benefits Raw Insecticide Free Almonds also have copper and manganese. These are needed in trace amounts by the body. Copper is necessary to make red blood cells and is a catalyst for the storage and release of iron. It also helps the body make collagen, which keeps skin, bones, cartilage and tendons supple. Manganese is needed for normal bone structure and to help metabolise glucose. It helps the body break down carbohydrates and fats into fuel and might be an antioxidant.
Many people eat their almonds roasted, but there are even more benefits to eating almonds raw. Nuts in general have fat, but they’re either polyunsaturated or monounsaturated fats, and many nuts are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which protect the heart and the arteries. They’re also good sources of minerals like iron, potassium and magnesium.
