Specs: As per California Law, all California almonds have to be flash steam-sterilized, resulting in a product that cannot be advertised as fully raw. (although we have had someone sprout one before…)
Our Italian almonds are imported directly from Italy and are of the Genco Variety – a high yield almond variety with a consistent mild taste.
Quality: Medium to high, very few (<1%) bitter almonds, inconsistent in shape and size.
Specs: Italian Almonds are unpasteurized – meaning that they are fully raw.
Summary: Our Organic Italian Genco Variety Almonds are great for use in cooking, baking, and making almond milk. Although not as sweet in flavor compared to the California Non-Pareil Almonds, Genco Almonds still make for a great out of the bag snack.
Short term: cool, dark, and dry. If storing for long periods, keep refrigerated or best frozen.
Almonds are considered to be healthy due to their fatty acid spectrum. This consists of 80% oleic acid, 15% linoleic acid and 5% palmitic acid. In addition, they have 19% protein, 16% carbohydrates and many minerals, above all potassium and vitamins B1 and B2.
