There are many health benefits associated with eating almonds. Researchers at Tufts University in Boston found that most of the nutrients in almonds and their skins, when eaten together, may offer a significantly higher amount of protection than when the skin and meat of the almond are not consumed together. Studies at the University of California confirmed this and suggest that there are antioxidant compounds in the almond skin in addition to naturally occurring vitamins that may provide positive health benefits when eaten with the meat of the almond. At Kings College in London research showed that we may actually be getting less fat from almonds than was previously thought. According to the study the cell wall of the almond may play an important role in the way the body absorbs the fat of the almond. Since chewing almonds breaks down the cell wall but at the same time leaves some of the almond intact. Dr. Karen Lapsley, senior nutritionist for the Almond Board of California says, "This is exciting new research. Because some of the almond remained intact not all of the fat was released for digestion. This suggests that almonds may be a lower calorie food than suspected because not all of the calories from fat are absorbed."
