How many almonds per day?

How many almonds per day?

How many times have we wondered “How many almonds should be eaten per day?”

We at Nuturally have the answer.

A portion of 25-30gr is the recommended daily quantity to maintain a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle.*

This is argued by a study published in the England Journal of Medicine* which showed that the consumption of 30g of nuts per day has the potential to lead to an increase in average life expectancy. The benefits are many and range from reduced food waste to monetary savings but, according to the authors of the New England Journal of Medicine study, "the most obvious benefit is a 29% reduction in cardiovascular mortality, followed by an 11% reduction in cancer mortality.”

How many almonds are to be eaten if you don’t have a scale at hand?

In those cases, the palm of the hand becomes the “scale”, mostly when you are not at home and when you don’t want to exceed the calories need. In fact, by combining two thumbs together you will have the classic "handful of almonds" to eat a day.

The classic “handful of almonds” corresponds to a portion ranging from 18 and 30 almonds.

According to the British Nutrition Foundation's “Find Your Balance” guide, using your hands to easily assess the portions of food to be consumed is an intuitive and, literally, 'at your fingertips' way to have a long and healthy life. But the hand is not the only unit of measurement identified by the BNF which, in fact, also recommends using the fist and thumb.

Of course, it is good to bear in mind that each person has their own specific nutritional needs depending on their constitution, age, gender, level of physical activity, etc. and, for this reason, the portions of food vary according to individual needs. In fact, the study reveals that the hand method is proportionally applicable because a larger person, with larger hands, will automatically consume larger portions than smaller people, with smaller hands.
