Everyone knows about peanut butter, but what about almond butter?
People always ask the question, “are nut butters healthy?”. The short answer is, yes! Almond butter, just like peanut butter, is healthy.
Now this doesn’t mean you should have a jar of almond butter a day. As it is the case with all foods - you need to be mindful about serving sizes. Every food can be a part of a healthy diet in moderation.
Benefits of Almond Butter
Contains healthy fats (monounsaturated & polyunsaturated fats). These fats help lower cholesterol & blood pressure - decreasing the incidence of cardiovascular disease.
There is also research that almond butter can help lower blood sugar.
It can be good for maintaining a healthy weight, as almond butter is a protein source and therefore a filling substance. This can prevent people from over eating (which can cause weight gain).
It contains vitamins & minerals! Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamin E & Fibre.
There is a problem with all nut butters - and that is, that some brands contain added sugar, oils and/or emulsifiers, which can reduce the potential health benefits of the nut butter.
