Almonds: pearls of health and goodness
Almonds are the seeds of Prunus Amygdalus, a plant of Asian origin (in particular from Central Asia), subsequently widespread in Europe, starting from Greece and then from Italy, Spain and France.
Currently the largest producers are California, followed by Spain and Italy.
Rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and iron.
Numerous studies have shown the benefits given by the daily consumption of a regular amount of sweet almonds (we recommend a daily average of 30-35gr per day and no more, so as not to exceed in calorie intake).
Properties of almonds:
- Regulate the intestines
- Improve blood glucose levels
- Rich in Omega-3
- They give a sense of satiety (many recommend them as a snack)
- Contain folic acid useful in pregnancy
