What nutrients are we talking about?

Almond meal is rich in micronutrients vitamin E, magnesium, and manganese (which also happens to be a beneficial component of maple syrup). Magnesium and adequate fiber intake are important contributors to your cardiovascular health, and with a healthy dose of manganese and vitamin E, you will also be increasing your antioxidant consumption.
