We’ve selected the very best unblanched Whole Almonds for our range to make sure that you have the widest choice as to how to enjoy these delicious nuts. Almonds contain fibre, protein and healthy fats. It is these macro nutrients that makes these nuts particularly useful if you are watching your weight, as it only takes a handful to stave of hunger.
These satisfyingly crunchy, sweet nuts contain valuable micronutrients too. Magnesium, which is essential for muscle, organ and nerve function and manganese, a mineral that helps the body form strong bones and regulate blood sugar levels.
Eating unblanched almonds means that you also benefit from the flavonoids found in the skin. These act as antioxidants to help protect cell damage from free radicals.
One of the best sources of vitamin E and only 161 calories per small handful (28g). And of this 28g, 14g are fat, however, 9g of this is monounsaturated fat which is why almonds are one of the healthiest nut choices.
Snack as they are or use as cake decoration; soak briefly in hot water to ‘pop’ the nut out of it’s skin if you need blanched almonds for a recipe, then you could put some in your food processor for a quick blitz to have your own freshly nibbed almonds, keep going and you’ll have delicious ground almonds to use instead of flour.
