Why is Betsy’s Best nuts for almonds? This delightfully delicious nut is technically a seed of the almond tree. Straight from sunny California, almonds are a rich source of protein, vitamins and minerals. They’re bursting with biotin, vitamin E, manganese, copper, vitamin B2, phosphorus, fiber, and healthy fats. They help lower LDL cholesterol and risk of heart disease, stabilize blood sugar, protect against cancer and other diseases, aid in weight loss and more. As the main ingredient in our Gourmet Almond Butter, you can snack on this super yummy super-food, guilt-free.
