Almonds

FUNCTIONS

Whole Grain

DESCRIPTION

The almond is a rich source of the B vitamins thiamine, vitamin B6, folate, riboflavin and niacin, vitamin E, choline and the essential minerals potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and zinc.

Cashews

FUNCTIONS

Whole Grain

DESCRIPTION

Cashews are rich sources (> 19% DV) of dietary minerals, including particularly copper, manganese, phosphorus and magnesium (79-110% DV), and of thiamin, vitamin B6 and vitamin K (32-37% DV) (table).[17] Iron, potassium, zinc and selenium are present in significant content (14-61% DV).

Cottonseed Oil

FUNCTIONS

Processed

DESCRIPTION

An oil extracted from the seeds of several varieties of the cotton plant. The oil is heavily processed and is very common in commercial foods. Because the oil resists becoming rancid, it offers products a longer shelf life. The oil is also commonly found in its hydrogenated form - see Partially Hydrogenated Cottonseed Oil.

Salt

FUNCTIONS

Processed

DESCRIPTION

Common salt is a mineral composed primarily of sodium chloride. Salt is essential for animal life, and saltiness is one of the basic human tastes. In general, Americans should limit daily sodium consumption to 2,300 milligrams, but this is an upper safe limit, not a recommended daily allowance.
