Natural Almond Meal
Natural almond meal is the product of whole almonds being ground down to a meal. Almonds are a popular nut as they have a delicate flavour and a whole range of health benefits. Our almond meal has a very similar nutrient content to raw almonds and only have a slightly reduced oil and anti-oxidant level due to the grinding process.
The almond tree originated in the middle east and soon spread as far as North Africa and India. The almond tree produces a fruit that contains the drupe, which is what we know of as the almond. A drupe may appear to look like a nut but it is not, therefore in botanical terms, almonds aren’t a true nut. Almonds are grown across the world with America being the greatest producer, followed by Australia and Spain.
Like raw almonds, almond meal is alkalising, which means it is gentle on your body and it is also good source of magnesium, calcium and iron. Almond meal is high in protein and it may play an important role in preventing colon cancer due to its high fibre levels. Natural almond meal contains flavenoids and is a great source of vitamin E. Both of these nutrients are known to be potent anti-oxidants that can reduce inflammation in the body and can slow-down aging. Natural almond meal is also high in protein and contains mono-unsaturated fats, which can reduce the bad LDL cholesterol and increase the good HDL cholesterol in the body.
Natural almond meal is useful to bake with, particularly as a flour substitute for those with gluten sensitivity or intolerance. It produces deliciously moist cakes and cookies, is great for pie crusts or pizza bases and has a great flavour compared to other gluten-free flours.
