Almond butter is a food paste made from almonds. Being made from almonds rather than peanuts, it is considered hypoallergenic, and, as such, it is easier for those with food sensitivities to digest. Almonds are high in monounsaturated fats, which are considered to be a healthier form of fat than saturated fat. They are an excellent source of Vitamin E and magnesium and a good source of fiber. They contain monosaturated fat, protein, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, and iron.
