    Thats a good habit.
    My mom says some people may be allergic to the peels (while some may develop allergy to it eventually).

    I would also like to hear what others have to add here.

    Hey Shivani, recent researches hv proved that thr is no harm in having almonds soaked overnight with peel…:) they say rather one should hv on everyday basis around 8-10 overnight soaked almonds with peel early morning in breakfast… they explain the logic tht the harmful fatty oils are removed in water by soaking thm overnight n the peel has certain essential nutrients which should b consumed as it is….it controls ur cholesterol levels n is also gud fr sugar n bp patients…:) so instead of 2 start having 8-10 ….:)

    No harm in eating them with peel :) soaking them (“activating the almond enzymes”) increases their nutritional value and the peel adds to the fibre content of the almond. I them daily with peel :) If the almond skin is not an irritant to your stomach, go on and eat around 5 of them!

    I just remove the peel as I feel it’s more hygenic, you worries about dust or pesticides etc.

    Hi Shivani,

    These is nothing in the skin. You have it or don’t have it. It does not really matter :)

  7. Shivani says:

    Thanks all! I asked it because I have seen many girls eating it without peel and saying that it is too “garam” for girls and is not good for their health and reproductive system :P

    I eat 8-10 soaked almonds without peel. Wanted to know it is better to eat with peel of without peel for falling hair.
