Almonds are extremely nutrient-rich! A handful (1-ounce or about 23 almonds) is an excellent source of vitamin E. While all nuts are valued for the vitamin E content, none has close to the amount - nearly 40 percent of the Daily Value - that almonds do. Almonds are also rich in protein (6 grams per ounce), magnesium and manganese, are a good source of copper, fiber and the B vitamin riboflavin. That's a lot of nutrients for such a small package.
