In 2002 a study found that almonds significantly lowered bad cholesterol levels in people with high cholesterol.

In 2003, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first qualified health claim for a food for use on package labels. The claim states,

"Scientific evidence suggests but does not prove that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, such as almonds, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease."
