Are roasted almonds keto?
Yes, roasted almonds are considered keto-friendly because they are low in carbohydrates. One ounce (28 grams) of roasted almonds contains approximately 6 grams of carbohydrates. Of those, 4 grams are from dietary fiber, leaving only 2 grams of net carbs, which is the carb content that counts on a keto diet. On keto diets, most people need to keep net carbs between 20-50 grams per day, so almonds fit within that guideline.
Are roasted almonds gluten-free?
Yes, roasted almonds are naturally gluten-free as they are a type of nut and do not contain any wheat, barley, or rye, which are the primary sources of gluten. However, please be aware that roasted almonds can be cross-contaminated with gluten if processed in facilities that also process gluten-containing foods. Certain brands may also add seasonings or other additives that contain gluten. Always check labels if you are sensitive or allergic to gluten. Roasted almonds without seasoning or additives, or those labeled gluten-free, would be safe choices.
