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. While nuts provide an adequate source of quality protein, it is also important to have a spread of amino acids which make up protein. Melrose has established that equal quantities of Almonds, Brazil and Cashew nuts can supply the right balance of protein. Our ABC Spread contains all three of these nutritious nuts, giving you the taste you love and the nutrition you need.
Almonds are the most alkaline of all nuts, which alone is a major benefit. Almonds are an excellent source of calcium and magnesium. Magnesium works with calcium to support healthy muscles and bones in the body.
The sweet tasting Brazil nuts are particularly healthy due to their high protein and selenium content, which makes their protein content ""complete"". This means that, unlike the proteins in most plant products, Brazil nuts' proteins contain all the necessary amino acids to foster optimal growth in humans (in the same way as proteins from animal products do). Selenium is also a powerful antioxidant . Brazil nuts are also a very good source of zinc (essential to digestion and metabolism).
Cashew nuts have a high content of monounsaturated fats, Omega-9, copper and magnesium. Cashews do not contain cholesterol and are an energizing food. Cashew nuts have a high energy density and high amount of dietary fibre, both have been attributed to a beneficial effect on weight management, but only when eaten in moderation.
Melrose Nut Spreads can be used as a delicious and nutritious sandwich filling. Add your favourite flavour next time you make a pesto. They can be spread over meat on a grill to add a unique taste. Try adding some to a dip for extra crunch and flavour. Use as a topping for pasta, steamed or healthy sautéed vegetables. Mix one of the Melrose Nut Spreads together with some yoghurt and serve with fruit.
