[Raw Vs. Roasted]
At Nunes Farms we DRY ROAST all of our almonds in our specialized roaster at our ranch. We believe dry roasting helps to preserve the integrity of the almond and keep the delicious flavor intact as well as sustain a longer shelf life. Not to mention, it's healthier for you!
But, the question remains, which is better, raw or roasted almonds?
Ounce for ounce, raw almonds are nutritionally comparable to plain, dry roasted almonds. The nutritional profile of almonds roasted in dry heat without additional ingredients is very similar to that of the raw nut. Both versions contain healthy fats that help reduce bad cholesterol levels, helping with blood pressure and keeping your heart healthy.
One ounce of raw almonds, or approximately 23 whole almonds, provides 163 calories, just over 6 grams of protein and one ounce of plain, dry roasted almonds provides 169 calories, just under 6 grams of protein.
With nearly identical nutritional profiles, the differences really just come down to flavor. Raw almonds are delicious and have the traditional almond taste as opposed to the roasted or cooked flavor of roasted nuts. Raw almonds do not have the intense taste of roasted almonds. Roasted almonds are a bit crunchier and have a less chewy texture than its raw counterpart. It really all comes down to a matter of preference! Our personal favorite? Both!
