Nuts and Phytic Acid | Mark’s Daily Apple

Nuts and Phytic Acid | Mark’s Daily Apple.

What a fantastic article about nuts on MDA today! Just yesterday I was sitting in a meeting for work, and a coworker with celiac popped out a huge can of almonds for lunch, “because I’m on the caveman diet.” Too bad she didn’t read this piece.

Mark’s post is brief and to the point, while also answering every question I had, from selenium content in Brazil nuts, to the chelation action of phytic acid. There is also a hidden gem in the table at the beginning. Although he merely eludes to this factual tidbit, I suggest you check out the difference in phytic acid between brown and polished white rice — so telling.
