ORGANIC ALMOND FLOUR, blanched
Production: directly imported from a family farm in Sicily, Italy, these almonds are of the Tuono variety, blanched and ground to a flour consistency.
Qualities: Almonds are a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins like B2, biotin, and E as well as many essential minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, copper, and zinc. They are also rich in dietary fiber and mono and polyunsaturated fats. Typical of many nuts and seeds, almonds contain phytosterols which have been associated with cholesterol-lowering properties.
Results from a recent study  showed evidence that nut consumption (about 20 almonds) may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, cardiovascular disease, total cancer, and all-cause mortality, and possibly mortality from diabetes, respiratory disease, and infectious disease.
Common Use: Almonds are commonly enjoyed on their own as a healthy snack, sprinkled over salads or desserts, and used in many culinary dishes both savory or sweet. They come in many forms such raw or toasted, blanched & sliced or diced, as flour or butter, or enjoyed coated in chocolate or Tamari. You can also easily make your own almond milk (blend with water, a couple of dates, a bit of vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Then strain through a sprout bag or muslin cloth and enjoy).
Storage: to preserve freshness, keep refrigerated in a sealed container. Temperatures for long-term storage are −3 to 0 °C (27 to 32 °F) and low humidity

What the **** happened?
I previously wrote a glowing review for Organic Matters' almond flour, which I had bought quite often over the years. I saw that they had recently changed it - bringing in a non-blanched version instead of the blanched type (no skin). Beyond my better judgement, I decided to try it out anyway, I regretted it instantly. Baking with almond flour is tricky at the best of times, but this stuff just makes everything super crumbly and fall apart, no matter what I do. About the only thing it works for now is my banana bread recipe - and even then it's not that great. On top of it - almond skin is known for containing lectins and anti-nutrients. In other words, the nutritional content is much less bioavailable. Shame on OM for not giving us a choice at least... shame on me for buying 5 lbs of this ****.
Good product but this is not a fine grind almond flour. Didn’t work as well as I hoped
Keep up the great work! Thanks!
This product makes gluten free bread making so much easier. I use to grind whole almonds in the food processor and then fine grind them again in the Vitamix. A messy, time consuming, process. This almond flour is a little bit more expensive than buying whole almonds but saves the hassle of double grinding the nuts.

This Organic Almond Flour is the best. The flavour is like none other. I will use nothing else now that I've experienced this Almond Flour.
