Are they something to worry about or are they just another example of paying too much attention to shit that doesn't really matter? For instance phytic acid has a strong binding affinity to important minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc but to what extent?
Below is a list of nuts and the phytic acid content of each per 100 gram sample...
Almonds 1,280 mg/100 gram
Cashews 1,866 mg/100 gram
Chestnuts 47 mg/100 gram
Peanuts, toasted 933 mg/100 gram
Jif peanut butter 1,252 mg/100 gram
Black walnuts 1,977 mg/100 gram
English walnuts 760 mg/100 gram
Using almonds as an example: They are a good source of protein, fat, vitamin E, manganese, magnesium, copper, vitamin B2 (riboflavin), and phosphorus so they pack a big puncg nutritionally speaking. So the question is, would the nutritional value found in almonds negate the antinutrient profile they possess?
