Note that 50% of the calories come from fat and 22% come from carbohydrates (10% from fibre).

Whole almonds are rich in proteins (20%) and have a substantial amount of iron and calcium. They are also high in fibre.

Also note that compared to whole raw almonds, with 0mg of salt, smoked almonds are very high in salt (560mg). It would be more sensible to snack on raw natural almonds to avoid ingesting high amounts of salt.

How to Store Almonds

Store almonds in an airtight container, in a cool dry place away from heat and sunlight. Avoid storing almonds near foods that emit strong odours, like fish, onions or garlic.
