Almonds have a long history, going all the way back to 1400 BC. Almond trees originated in the Middle East, but today are widely grown in Spain and California. Spain is only second to the United States in almond production. In fact, it was Spanish missionaries who introduced almonds to the US more than 150 years ago.
Almonds are high in protein at 6 grams per ounce, high in fiber at 4 grams per ounce and are an excellent source of other vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium and potassium. Two decades of research have shown that almonds can help maintain a healthy heart and weight.
