Almonds are exceptionally healthy nuts. Research has shown that almonds and other nuts do not tend to contribute to weight gain, & make a healthy snack that’s packed with protein, fiber, calcium, zinc, and antioxidants. Medical research shows that almonds can lower the risk of heart problems because they’re a good source of monounsaturated fats and in fact may help with weight control. They may also protect against DNA damage and lower cholesterol. The benefits of almonds can be reaped when eaten either cooked or raw. Our almonds kernels are all natural, supreme sized nuts.
Mamra Almonds: Originally from Iran, Mamra almonds are a rich source of protein, minerals and vitamins. Many people consider these tree nuts to be amongst the world’s healthiest foods. These have a higher proportion of almond oil than other types of almonds. Great as a pick-me-up snack anytime during the day, these are essential foods for office-going folks, children and elders alike.
Let me start by singing a few praises of the Mamra:
- Mamra has higher carbohydrate content.
- Mamra contains more oil and therefore more calories than the other varieties.
- Mamra has slightly lesser protein content as compared to Californian almond.
- Mamra is also richer in sugar content than the other two types, and that is why it is considered as a potent energy snack.
The thing that actually sets aside the Mamra badam from the Californians and Gurbandis is the method of production. Mamras are cultivated organically without using chemicals. You typically buy these almonds in their almost natural state.
