Almond paste Soncone is a 100% natural high-quality product made of almonds roasted in the skin, free of sugar, salt, and palm oil. Almonds contain a wealth of nutrients characterised by a health-enhancing effect on the human organism.

Edible nuts are a more and more common component in the human diet. The fact results from the ever growing awareness of consumers about their beneficial effect, which has been documented by numerous scientific tests, and from their still increasing availability. One of the most commonly consumed nuts are almonds, that is the seeds of the almond tree.

The dominating component of almonds, amounting to about 50/100 g, is fat; however, it is also important that it has a high content of protein, which is about 20/100 g. From the dietary and health-oriented point of view, the most important components contained in nuts are the macro- and microelements which, alone or as a result of synergy with other components, are responsible for the preventive or even medicinal properties of almonds.

The amount of protein contained in almonds is similar or much higher from the content of the component in products of animal origin. Although protein in nuts is not characterised by high biological quality, its low proportion of lysine to arginine made it possible to consider it a factor beneficial for reducing the risk of developing circulatory system diseases.

Many scientific studies that demonstrated the health-promoting effects of nuts associated them with the profile of fatty acids contained in them. From the dietary point of view, an important compound is α-linolenic acid, which has an anti-inflammatory effect, and improves lipid management in the blood by reducing the level of the LDL cholesterol fraction and triglycerides, thanks to which it is able to reduce arterial blood pressure, the risk of developing vascular inflammation and cardiovascular system diseases.

Other major components contained in almonds that have a beneficial effect on the human organism and are considered biologically active are: vitamin B2, free amino acids (mainly L-arginine), dietary fibre, potassium, magnesium, copper, folic acid, antioxidants (tocopherols, polyphenols, flavonoids), and polyunsaturated fatty acids. It is thanks to those substances, among other things, that the consumption of almonds can help to prevent heart diseases and diabetes, which has been proven scientifically.

Folic acid plays an important role in the detoxification of homocysteine – an amino acid containing sulphur, which has atherogenic properties and is deposited in the blood plasma in case of a folic acid deficit. Hyperhomocysteinemia is believed to be an independent risk factor of developing cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, congenital disorders, and cancer.

The right level of magnesium and copper improves insulin sensitivity, prevents arterial hypertension and arrhythmia, and type 2 diabetes, as well as supports the normal functioning of the vascular endothelium. Dietary fibre reduces blood sugar concentration after a meal, and the result of its fermentation are short-chain fatty acids, which prevent the occurrence of an inflammation. Apart from that, it helps to reduce LDL levels in the blood serum, thanks to which it is able to prevent cardiovascular diseases.

L-Arginine is a nitric oxide precursor that helps to improve the elasticity of blood vessels, which is dependent on the endothelium. A high proportion of arginine to lysine reduces the level of LDL in the blood, which is considered to be a factor beneficial for reducing the risk of developing circulatory system diseases.

Nuts are also known as a source of antioxidants, which are necessary for the protection against oxidative stress. Above all, nuts are a fantastic source of α-tocopherols, considered an important anti-atherosclerotic factor. Among other components with antioxidant properties, there are also various polyphenolic compounds, like anthocyanines, flavonoids, lignans, naphthoquinones, fenolic acids, and especially gallic acid, proanthocyanidins, and tannins. Antioxidants prevent the occurrence of an inflammation thanks to their antioxidant properties and the ability to modulate signalling pathways, including the influence on the nuclear transcription factor, whose results are, for example, the modulation of the inflammatory genes of macrophages. They restore the right balance of oxidised and reduced glutathione in the plasma and enhance the response of β cells to glucose and the activity of insulin, as well as increase the resistance of LDL to oxidation.

To sum up, Almond paste Soncone is a product that can constitute an excellent element of diversion in the diet at any time. Almond paste can be used for fresh bread or rice waffles, for diversifying most meat dishes, mixed with fruit products and taken everywhere as an energy-boosting snack, or eaten with a spoon as a delicacy.
