    4 almonds = 1 gram of protein?

    there are 8 oz per cup and 1 oz of Almonds has 6 grams of protein.
    I wanted to know exactly how many almonds make 1 gram of protein, so I filled one cup with raw almonds (183 almonds quite confortably) and using a protein count chart worked out that there were 48 grams of protein in that cup filled with almonds.

    That means 4 almonds (roughly) = 1 gram of protein

    am I wrong?

    By the way, I read almonds have the highest protein content of any nut.

    Well not all almonds are exactly the same size, so it will vary, but if you did the math correctly then that is a good guideline.

    I eat a cup of almonds throughout the day at work and count it as 40grams of protein.

    Maybe, but I wouldn't be concerned with it. Eat almonds because of the fat, not the protein. There are much better, higher quality, protein sources out there.
    Blubbo: What are they doing?
    Momo the Glutton: Getting ready for birthday party! They are always having birthday party!
    Blubbo: Ooooh, let's have a bithday party too! Blubbo wants birthday party!
    Momo the Glutton: Impossible, bubblehead!
    Blubbo: B-b-b-but why?
    Momo the Glutton: Because Blubs have no birthday! You have to have birthday to have birthday party!
    Blubbo: Why Blubs have no birthday?
    Momo the Glutton: Because Blubs were never born. You have to be born to have a birthday, bubblehead! Besides, who'd ever invite a Blub to a birthday party? You're ugly, bumbling, useless creatures who don't even taste good! If you didn't have such a disgusting taste Momo would have eaten you long ago.

    No, peanuts have more protein than almonds. Like everyone else has said, eat almonds for the good fat it provides, not the little protein you can get out of it.

    Cool

    4 Almonds = 1 gram of Protein. That is interesting. I do love almonds more so than peanuts. Especially almond butter which many times I use as a base for homemade protein bars.
