Tuesday's Trade Up: Nuts (Part 3)

Okay, so over the last two weeks we've looked at Planters Nuts.
Week 1: Planters Nut-rition Antioxidant Mix (NuVal score = 20)
Week 2: Planters Nut-rition Omega 3 Mix (NuVal score = 36)

This week we explore Planter Nut-rition Almonds. We've heard that almonds are good for us and contain healthy fat good for our hearts and brain, but could plain almonds score better than the Antioxidant or Omega 3 mix? Surely the addition of those extra nutrients would bump up the score, right?

Planters Nut-rition Almonds - This favorite provides numerous vitamins and minerals and is perfect for tossing into salads or grabbing a handful (about 25 pieces) as a quick snack. NUT•rition Almonds have half the sodium of the leading brand of salted almonds.



Actually, Planters Nut-rition Almonds, plain and simple (with little sodium) have a NuVal score of 52!

Next week we finish our canned nut Trade Up with Planters Nut-rition Heart Healthy Mix. Come back to see the final score.
