It is also suitable for those with wheat or gluten intolerance, as it is not a grain, but a fruit seed, related to rhubarb and sorrel. Peaches are rich in potassium, Vitamin A, B, C, E and K. And minerals calcium, magnesium, iron phosphorus, zinc and copper. Almonds are rich in omega 3 fats, calcium and Vitamin E.
