About Organic Almonds Ground
Almonds have a high calcium content (typically 250mg per 100g). They are used in many sweet recipes, including marzipan. Ground almonds (also known as almond flour or almond meal) is popular for baking sweets, cakes and biscuits. They add moistness and a rich nutty taste to your favourite recipes. All our ground and flaked almonds are blanched (the brown skin is taken of the almonds before grinding them). The consistency is more like corn meal than wheat flour. It is used in pastry and confectionery - in the manufacture of almond macaroons and other sweet pastries, in cake and pie filling, and is one of the two main ingredients of marzipan and almond paste. In France almond meal is called frangipane and is an important ingredient in the traditional Galette des Rois cake.
Almonds contain protein and the amino acid tryptophan - which is a proven mood booster.
