Almond GoodnessSince the first century BC, when travelers on the silk road brought them from Asia to the Mediterranean, almonds have been prized as one of nature’s most nutritious foods. They quickly became a staple of the Mediterranean diet and almond groves flourished throughout the region.
When early Spanish settlers arrived in California in the mid-1700’s, they brought with them their cherished almond trees. Within 100 years, thriving almond groves had spread through much of California’s great Central Valley.
Today this Mediterranean staple is a suggested part of a healthy diet and is increasingly renowned as a nutrient dense whole food with rich taste and versatility.
Almond BenefitsLow Fat & Cholesterol Free:
Almonds can lower cholesterol as part of a diet low in saturated fat.
Excellent Source of Calcium and Vitamin D:
Almonds play an essential role in bone health.
Source of Vitamin E:
Almonds are one of the leading food sources of vitamin E, which supports immunity and healthy skin.
The vitamin E found in almonds (alpha-tocophenol) is the most easily absorbed antioxidant known. It protects cells from oxidation by removing free radicals, which contribute to aging.

The Goodness of Whole GrainWhole grains are rich in nutrients and a good source of calcium and fibre. People who eat whole grains which are low in fat and cholesterol are less likely to experience chronic diseases like diabetes and obesity. A healthy diet rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables may help to reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and cancer.
Ryza was the first non-dairy product to qualify for the Whole Grain Council's stamp of approval. A wholesome, nutritious choice for your healthy lifestyle, ryza is made with the natural whole grains of brown rice - not milled or polished - to retain all the natural oils, vitamins and minerals of the entire grain.
