Sometimes I spill out the separated oil in almond butter to get rid of unnecessary Omega 6 fats. When doing so, do any of the nutrients (vitamin E, magnesium, etc.) get lost in this process? What nutrients are found in the oil, compared to the flesh of the nut?

According to NutritionData, 1 oz of almond oil contains:
11mg of vitamin E
2mcg of vitamin K
And that's it. Since you won't be consuming the 5mg of omega-6 that comes in that 1oz, I highly doubt your body is going to miss that 11mg of vitamin E. Someone on here recently posted about replacing the oil portion of nut butters with grassfed butter, which sounds absolutely nutrishilicious.
