Organic Almond Butter
Enjoy the sweet flavor of fresh, raw California almonds in our Organic Almond Butter and savor the delightful texture and clean aroma of this uniquely energizing blend. Throughout history, almonds have been enjoyed not only for their delicate, versatile flavor and great crunch, but also their legendary healthful properties. Almonds are nutritionally dense-- an excellent source of vitamin E, magnesium and fiber and also offers heart-healthy monounsaturated fat, protein, potassium, calcium, phosphorous and iron.
In a clinical trial published in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation, men and women who ate one daily ounce of almonds for a month lowered their LDL ( or “bad”) cholesterol by 4.4 percent. Those who ate two daily ounces of almonds lowered their LDL cholesterol even more – by 9.4 percent – and maintained their weight. This cholesterol-lowering effect is similar to that of heart-healthy foods such as oats and soy. Also, a 2003 study in the International Journal of Obesity found that adding a daily ration of almonds to a low-calorie diet enhanced weight loss, as well as significantly improved risk factors associated with heart disease, when compared to a low-fat, low-calorie diet. Researchers cited almonds’ heart-healthy monounsaturated fat as being very satiating, helping satisfy the appetite and prevent patients from overeating.
