ORGANIC ALMOND FLOUR (BLANCHED)
Organic blanched almond flour (or almond meal) is a low-carb, gluten-free baking alternative to standard wheat flour. Our organic almond flour is made of—you guessed it—pure organic almonds, grown without pesticides or chemicals. Organic almond flour can be used as a base in breads, pancakes, muffins, cookies, cakes, and more. It can also be used to coat meat, poultry, seafood, and vegetables.
What is Blanched Almond Flour?
The almonds are first blanched to remove the skin, and then ground up to a coarse consistency, similar to that of wheat or cornmeal. There may still be a small amount of almond skins in the blanched almond flour left behind during processing.
Part of a Gluten-Free or Low-Carb Diet
Sometimes known as almond meal, almond flour is particularly popular with customers on gluten-free diets, as it serves for almost all of the same uses as wheat flour. Compared to other flours, almond flour is especially flavorful, with a nutty taste that works with many other foods. There are 18 grams of carbs in each serving of almond flour, which is low compared to other grain-based flours. Our organic almond flour is just as nutritious as the almonds it’s made of. The flour is high in protein and low in carbohydrates and sugar, making it an attractive option for customers on low-carb diets. Almonds have been associated with lower cholesterol and reduced risk of heart disease because of their monounsaturated fat and high levels of vitamin E. Our organic almond flour contains high amounts of calcium, iron, and dietary fiber, nutrients that people with gluten-free diets sometimes lack, as well as many other minerals.
Organic almonds Packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and milk products.
