Almonds are among the world’s most popular tree nuts and are used to produce almond milk, oil, butter, flour or paste (marzipan). Flaked almonds are produced by shelling almonds, blanching with water/steam, then hot air dried and finely sliced.
Almonds are an excellent source of nutrients, they are packed with antioxidants, and are one of the best sources of vitamin E - getting plenty of vitamin E from foods is linked to numerous health benefits. They are low in carbohydrates, but high in healthy fats, protein and fibre, which can increase feelings of fullness.
Cooking with Flaked Almonds
Flaked almonds make an excellent nutritional accompaniment to salads and stir frys. Try lightly toasting the flaked almonds and then add them to a warm salad of spinach, snow peas, green beans, roasted pumpkin and cherry tomatoes, with a light dressing – they add such a lovely texture.
You can also add them to your breakfast for some extra nutrition – sprinkle them over your cereal / porridge / muesli / yogurt. You can also use them in baking, eat them as they are or add to a trail mix.
