ABC Spread Almond, Brazil & Cashew Nuts

It has been widely suggested that humans need approximately 19 grams of protein a day. Meat has been the most usual source of protein for humans, but this raises a dilemma for vegetarians and others wishing to consume less meat.

Whilst it is also equally known that nuts provide an adequate source of quality protein, it is also important to have a spread of amino acids which make up protein. Relating the amino acids from the protein in nuts to those in meat, we have established that equal quantities of almonds, brazil nuts and cashews supply the right balance. In addition, almonds, the most alkaline of the nuts, are a good source of calcium and magnesium and brazil nuts are the richest natural source of the anti oxidant, selenium.

Unlike most peanut butters the natural oils in Melrose nut spreads are not subjected to hydrogenation. In normal spreads this hydrogenation turns liquid oils into solids so that they will not separate out. However hydrogenation also produces trans fatty acids and these have negative health effects.

Melrose nut spreads contain:

* only natural oils
* no hydrogenated oils
* no trans fats.

When using Melrose nut spreads, simply stir in the natural oils. Do not pour off the oil as this will leave you with a dry spread.

Nuts are nutritious health promoting foods and when eaten in moderation have no association with weight gain. Although nuts are generally high in fat, this fat is mostly monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fat. Nuts also have a high satiety value (i.e. they make you feel "full" for a relatively low kilojoules intake which may benefit weight loss.
