Los Angeles, California (2019) – Almonds are the most nutrient-dense tree nut. One ounce of almonds (20-25 almonds) contains 160 calories, only 1 gram of saturated fat and no cholesterol. Almonds are also an excellent source of vitamin E and magnesium, and a good source of protein and potassium. In fact, the protein in almonds is more like the proteins in human breast milk!
