Why I Love Almond Flour

Nutrition and Health Benefits
1. Almond flour is high in protein (1 serving has 6 grams of protein compared to 5.5 grams in one egg) and low in carbohydrates and sugar. This makes it an attractive option for customers on low-carb diets. Furthermore, the protein is great for maintaining and healthy muscles.
2. 64% of the fats found in almonds are monounsaturated fats and according to the American Heart Association, these fats help lower harmful cholesterol as effectively as expensive pharmaceutical drugs in addition to lowering the risk of heart disease.
3. According to The Journal of the American Association (2002), almonds’ high amount of vitamin E (1 oz has 35% of your daily recommended value of vitamin E) has been linked to protecting against Alzheimer’s disease.
4. The flour contains high amounts of calcium, iron, and dietary fiber, nutrients that people with gluten-free diets sometimes lack.
