Almonds have high levels of unsaturated fatty acids, which make up 93% of their total fat content. The most important if these is oleic acid. Being a foodstuff of vegetable origin, almonds do not contain cholesterol. Almonds are the favourite tree nuts in terms of flavour. They can be eaten for breakfast with cereals, muesli and yoghurt, as aperitifs or snacks and are a good substitute for pastries, as well as being used in salads and sauces. They are widely used in making sweet baking products such as marzipan, turron and pies, and in food preparations such as almond milk, ice creams and chocolate, among others. Almonds are very appreciated as cosmetic products.
