Our organic whole dry roasted almonds are unsalted, grown and processed in California. With their sweet, nutty flavor and crunchy texture, they are most commonly used as an ingredient to make chocolates and confections, energy bars, and trail mixes.
Since ancient times, almonds have been prized for their delicious flavor and crunchy texture. More recently, they have become one of the most popular tree nuts because of their nutritional value. High in protein (6 grams per ounce) and fiber (4 grams per ounce), they are also an excellent source of other vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium and potassium. Two decades of research has also shown that eating almonds can help maintain a healthy heart and weight. Originating in the Middle East, most almonds today are grown in California. In fact, California produces about 80% of the global almond supply and exports to nearly 90 countries.
