    They also contain calcium, which many here could need if they avoid dairy because dairy is wrong, you know.

    I think they are the second best nut for you, behind only walnuts. Nutrient rich, good protein, good fat, etc. Just be careful how many you eat, 1 serving is like 20 nuts, lots of cals.

    My bio professor said that unsaturated fats can acutally change to trans fats under high heats. CIS to TRANS configuration change.

    Who knows if he knows what he's talking about, he's a nut.

    Yeah, high heat facilitates the process of oxydative rancidity, but worrying about trans fat in roasted almonds is anal.
