Whole Almonds are left un-processed with their skins left intact. The skins are perfectly edible and provide the body with additional fibre and antioxidants.
Almonds have a distinctive sweet taste that gives classic sweets such as Bakewell Tart and Marzipan their flavour. These whole almonds can be eaten as a snack, added to muesli and added to flapjacks, cakes and breads. You can also soak them and then make them into almond milk.
Almonds are widely used in home baking and commonly used by people suffering with digestive issues as an alternative to wheat or corn flour when baking breads and cakes. Ground almonds are also known as almond flour or meal although almond flour is mainly made from dehydrated or de-fatted almonds to achieve a fine, oil free, flour-like product; almond meal is generally a coarser, ungraded product.
