Description

The Raw Marcona Almond is characterized by its rich content of calcium, protein and vitamin E. It is an essential element of the nougat industry. It is also used in cakes, ice cream, marzipan and various desserts. It is also used as the main ingredient in some types of horchata.

Almonds have great nutritional value, making them an essential food in a healthy and balanced diet. We can highlight that:

  • The raw almond is one of the nuts with the highest contribution of vitamin E (an important antioxidant).
  • It is a source of calcium, in fact its consumption is highly recommended for lactose intolerant. Comparing the same edible portion, the almond has twice the calcium of cow's milk.
  • The raw almond is an important source of protein, similar to meat, so its consumption is recommended in vegetarian diets.
  • Slightly more than 50% of its content is fat; 90% of them are monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, that is, good fats with a beneficial effect in general, since they lower cholesterol.
  • The raw almond is widely consumed worldwide for its versatility in a large number of dishes, both sweet and savory, as well as being consumed as a fried or roasted snack.
