Protein has a role in essentially every part of the human body. From bones and muscles (the obvious suspects) to cartilage, blood, enzymes, hormones and even skin and nails, the importance of protein is impossible to ignore. As a natural source of protein, almonds make it easy—and crunchy and downright delicious—for your clients to get lasting energy that will power them up and not let them down.
- Every ounce of almonds delivers 6 grams of satiating protein that can help your clients power through the day and even keep them feeling fuller between meals—a great way to help watch those waistlines.
- For those who would rather not crunch into whole nuts, other almond forms, such as almond butter (6g per serving), almond flour (6g per serving) and almond milk (1g per serving), also contain protein.
- It’s pretty common knowledge that nuts are a good source protein, but not all nuts are created equal. When compared ounce for ounce, almonds are the tree nut highest in this essential nutrient.
- As a plant-based source of natural protein, almonds can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels by replacing some animal based protein products.
