Good news about almonds and heart health Scientific evidence suggests, but does not prove,
that eating 1. 5 ounces per day of most nuts, such as almonds, as part of a diet low in saturated
fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease. A handful (about 23 almonds) or one
serving of almonds (28g) has 13g of unsaturated fat and only 1g of saturated fat.
