Almonds are one of today’s most popular ‘super foods’. Besides being a good source of protein and dietary fibre, they also deliver a significant dose of omega-9 and a combination of nutrients that researchers believe to be the source of its health benefits. It is no wonder then that almond has become a staple in healthy diets. With its delicious buttery flavour, almond can be enjoyed on its own, raw or toasted. They make a wonderful addition to salads and baked goods, providing a little extra crunch. They can be chopped, ground or shaved to suit any recipe requirement.
