Ever want a nuts and seeds list with nutritional data all on one place, well here it is! We've compiled these break downs for you to refer back to when you want a quick glance at specific nutrient levels.

The charts below list the top most common seed and nut varieties to help you evaluate which ones you might want to include more or less of according to your own personal health objectives.

This info may come in handy if you're adhering to a precise dietary protocol in which more details might be helpful. For example, if you're looking to reduce calorie intake you might like to know which nuts or seeds have the least amount of calories or even more details about the ratio of calories they are composed of: fat, protein or carbs.

Or, perhaps you'd like to consume more of certain seed or nuts containing vitamins or minerals that you may be especially deficient in. This data can be very useful in such instances.

To make it a bit easier, you can use these links to jump right to any one nutrient chart.

PROTEIN
CARBOHYDRATES
FATS
CALORIES
MINERALS
VITAMINS

Under each category we will give you the top seed or nut for that particular nutrient. For example, hemp seeds is at the top of the list for protein with macadamia nut at the bottom with the lowest protein content.

But, just in case you'd like to look up a specific nut or seed, we've also included separate chart lists for those as well.

Use these links to jump to any one variety.

The nutritional profiles on this page are sourced from the Nutrition Data website, information of which comes directly from the USDA's Food Composition Database. Other secondary resource we use, if necessary, is Nutrition Value.

Keep in mind these are general estimates of nutritional amounts and percentages, basically to give you an "idea of nutritional composition". Of course, numbers may largely vary depending on source, quality and other factors. 

All information provided is based on a one ounce serving (28-30g) with percentage Daily Values or Recommended Daily Values based on an adult 2,000 calorie diet.

About Soaking Nuts and Seeds

It is generally a good idea for optimal nutritional uptake to soak your nuts and seeds, particularly the ones with higher amounts of enzyme inhibitors, like phytates.

These substances can be eliminated or minimized by soaking the nut or seed in pure water for a number of hours. Usually this can be achieved by overnight soaking, or about 8 hours, before you use them for recipes or blending drinks.

Soft, fattier type nuts, like cashews or macadamia nuts, typically don't need to soak as long. After the soaking period, it is necessary to discard the soak liquid and rinse again with water. Some people also add in salt or lemon juice to the soak water to help neutralize enzyme inhibitors and reduce the phytic acid and lectin content.

If you like to eat nuts and seeds by the handful, soaking and dehydrating them is a good way to ensure greater nutrient bioavailability from the nuts and seeds list of nutritional data above.
