Certified organically grown whole almonds (with their nutritious skins on) are dry roasted and lightly coated with organic EDEN Tamari Soy Sauce at our AIB rated Superior, Michigan facility. EDEN Tamari Roasted Almonds are then allowed to naturally air dry before packaging in convenient, protective, resealable bags.

EDEN Tamari Roasted Almonds are an excellent source of magnesium and a good source of dietary fiber, protein and phosphorus. They are cholesterol free, low in sodium and a source of potassium, complex carbohydrate, calcium, iron, zinc, as well as omega 3, 6, and 9 essential fatty acids (EFAs). Although they are high in fat, they are low in saturated fat, and higher in healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.

Most roasted nuts are highly salted with poor quality refined salt. Also many are oil roasted in inferior quality oil. EDEN Tamari Roasted Almonds are dry roasted with their skins on and are lightly salty, 65 mg per serving. EDEN Tamari Roasted Almonds contain no added oils, additives, coloring agents, or preservatives.

There are many health benefits associated with eating almonds. Researchers at the University of Toronto reported that men and women who ate one ounce or a handful of almonds daily lowered their LDL (bad) cholesterol by 4.4 percent and an even greater decrease of 9.4 percent when they ate two handfuls daily. "We found that almonds reduce coronary heart disease risk factors in a dose-dependent manner and may be used as healthy snacks without weight gain," said Dr. David Jenkins who conducted the studies. Researchers at Tufts University in Boston found that most of the nutrients in almonds and their skins, when eaten together, may offer a significantly higher amount of protection than when the skin and meat of the almond are not consumed together. Studies at the University of California confirmed this and suggest that there are antioxidant compounds in the almond skin in addition to naturally occurring vitamins that may provide positive health benefits when eaten with the meat of the almond. At Kings College in London research showed that we may actually be getting less fat from almonds than was previously thought. According to the study the cell wall of the almond may play an important role in the way the body absorbs the fat of the almond. Since chewing almonds breaks down the cell wall but at the same time leaves some of the almond intact. Dr. Karen Lapsley, senior nutritionist for the Almond Board of California says, "This is exciting new research. Because some of the almond remained intact not all of the fat was released for digestion. This suggests that almonds may be a lower calorie food than suspected because not all of the calories from fat are absorbed." According to a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute smokers can significantly reduce their risk of lung cancer by eating almonds. In addition preliminary research from Dr. Paul Davis, University of California, Davis shows that almonds may reduce colon cancer risk by 40 percent, says Dr. Karen Lapsley.
