KEY BENEFITS OF ROASTED ALMONDS
One of the reasons roasted salted almonds make good snacks is their fibre content. Eating foods rich in fibre helps keep you full - the fibre fills your stomach, but doesn't boost the calorie content of your meal. Fibre also helps soften your stools to fight constipation, and helps to regulate your blood sugar after a meal.
