Granulation is the only difference between almond flour and almond meal. While there is no set specification that separates the two, almond flour is much finer than almond meal.
How does color vary in Blue Diamond Natural Almond Flour?
Almond flour is an agricultural product. There will be expected differences in color from batch to batch. This can be explained by variation in inputs used to make natural almond flour—different sizes and varieties of almonds, each having different skin to meat ratios. In result, there will be a range of colors apparent in our natural almond
flour. However, color will have no impact on granulation.
How does color impact application?
The impact of almond flour color in a product depends on the desired aesthetic preference. For items requiring a golden appearance, like sugar cookies, yellow cakes, and pie crusts , a lighter or blanched almond flour is the best option. For items that have spices, cocoa, or other inclusions; like brownies, quick breads, and crackers, differences in the flour color will not be as evident.
