How nutricious are nuts?
A simple answer would be based on the chemical analyis of fat and protein and carbohydrate content, and depending on the nut, there could be a very high fat content.
That is not a good answer.
What I would like to know is how much nutritive value is there in moderately masticated nuts.
It’s pretty plain that nuts such as almonds don’t get dissolved away and digested inside you. Significant quantities are excreted.
The question is how many absorbed calories do I get eating raw nuts such as almonds and cashews. What is the composition of those absrobed calories in terms of fat and protein and carbohydrate?
