Welcome to the official Google+ page of California Almonds and Almond Board of California.
California Almonds are not only tasty, crunchy and satisfying, they're also nutrient-rich and heart-smart.*
Based in Modesto, California, the Almond Board of California
administers a grower-enacted Federal Marketing Order under the
supervision of the United States Department of Agriculture. The Almond
Board promotes almonds through its research-based approach to all
aspects of marketing, farming and
production on behalf of the more than 6,000 California Almond growers
and processors, many of whom are multi-generational family operations.
* Scientific evidence suggests, but does not prove, that eating 1.5
ounces per day of most nuts, such as almonds, as part of a diet low in
saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease. U.S.
Dietary Guidelines recommend that the majority of your fat intake be
unsaturated. One serving of almonds (28g) has 13g of unsaturated fat and
only 1g of saturated fat.
