Why do we need to eat nuts?
Our nutritionist Jess recommends enjoying a portion of nuts everyday, as they contain amino acids, which are the building blocks for our muscle to repair, strengthen and grow. We think they are such a handy way to get in great quality fats, essential vitamins and minerals. Look out for our nutritionist badges to see which of our carefully balanced nut snacks are a source of fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals.
What are the healthiest nuts?
All nuts are nutritional superheroes, bringing many nutrients to the table and helping our bodies function at their best. Which could be considered the healthiest depends on what area of the nutritional profile you want to focus on. Pistachios and cashews have the lowest calorie (157 kcal) and fat content (12.9g) per serving size, whilst peanuts contain the most plant protein (7.3g) and almonds the most fibre (3.5g). In fact, almonds are considered to be the most nutritionally-dense nut, offering the most nutrients per calorie and per gram. Read more.
