The NOW Natural Almond Flour (Flour Almond) is a non-bleached, gluten-free flour that is an excellent, low-carbohydrate, a substitute for other flours used for baking, either in whole or in part. This unique flour is not buttermilk, making it a good source of essential fatty acids found in raw almonds.
Almonds are high in monounsaturated fats, the same type of healthy fats as found in the oil, which reduce the risk of heart disease. Researchers found that replacement with an equivalent amount of almonds to a medium carbohydrate diet leads to a 30% risk of heart disease. Apart from their effect in lowering cholesterol, the ability of almonds to reduce the risk of heart disease may also be due partly to the antioxidant vitamin E found in almonds, and the effect of monounsaturated fats in almonds in reducing LDL. Moreover, one quarter cup of almonds contains about 99 mg magnesium and 257 mg potassium. Almonds appear to not only prevent an increase in blood sugar after a meal, but also provide antioxidants that remove even the smallest amounts of free radicals.
