Whole Raw Carmel Almonds
Carmel almonds are a soft-shell variety of California almond often used for blanching and roasting. They are commonly substituted for both Nonpariel and other varieties of California almonds. They are primarily used as an ingredient in manufactured food products.
Almonds have a long history, going all the way back to 1400 BC. Almond trees originated in the Middle East, but today are widely grown in California. In fact, they are California's top agricultural export and largest tree nut crop in total dollar value and acreage. They also rank as the largest U.S. specialty crop export. Almonds are packed with nutrition making them the most popular of all the different types of nuts. They are high in protein at 6 grams per ounce, high in fiber at 4 grams per ounce and are an excellent source of other vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium and potassium. Two decades of research have shown that almonds can help maintain a healthy heart and weight.
