Advantages of Organic Almond Butter

Posted by Naturally Nutty on 6/20/2014

Almond butter is delicious, nutritious and versatile. Let’s look at the advantages of organic almond butter in relation to these three important food considerations - taste, nutrition and versatility.

Taste - Of course taste is a subjective, personal preference, but when most people get their first taste of almond butter, they’re hooked. Almond butter has a creamy, rich, sweet taste that goes great on a slice of bread or a slice of apple. You can also spread it on a cracker, a banana or a stalk of celery or just eat it by the spoonful. Don’t worry, we won’t tell.

No matter how you enjoy it, almond butter is just plain yummy. If you’ve never tasted organic almond butter, it's time to broaden your horizons.

Nutrition - Compared to other nut butters, almond butter is at the top nutritionally. In fact, almonds and almonds butter are on most lists of the top ten healthiest foods.

Almond butter is a nutrient dense food, which means it provides an especially high amount of nutritional value per calorie. Ounce for ounce, almonds are probably the most nutrient dense tree nut found anywhere in the world. Eating an ounce of almond butter gives you a lot of what your body needs and wants to stay healthy.

Almonds are high in protein, fiber, healthy monounsaturated fats, vitamin E and such essential minerals as calcium, magnesium and potassium. And although a serving of almond butter supplies about 14 grams of fat, the majority of that fat is healthy monounsaturated fat, and it has no cholesterol, no trans fats and no sodium.

When you choose organic almond butter, you can be sure you’re not getting food that’s been contaminated with synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. Many people also prefer the taste of organic almond butter to conventional almond butter. 

Versatility – A little creativity goes a long way with almond butter. Thinned with a liquid, almond butter can be used as a flavor base for a dressing, sauce, soup or dessert topping. You can also use almond butter in cookies, breads and frostings. You can even add it to a protein shake or a fruit smoothie. Any way you use almond butter, it will be just as tasty.
