Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Certification: *EU organic
Country of Origin: Italy
Directly imported from a farm in Sicily, Italy, these almonds are gently toasted to enhance their delicious almond flavor.
Production: These almonds originate from a variety of heirloom trees which are sustainably grown without the use of any pesticides or herbicides. Particular attention is given by the farmer to the microbial biodiversity and health of the soil resulting in vigorous, disease resistant plants which produce tasty nuts with pre & probiotic qualities. They are gently roasted to elevate the almond taste to crunchy perfection.
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, as flour or butter, or enjoyed coated in chocolate or Tamari.
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
