All our nuts are roasted, not fried!
The most common kind of nuts available are called “roasted nuts” – but if you look at the ingredients in roasted nuts, you’ll see that they include vegetable oil and salt. Why would you add oil to a food that already gets 60-80% of its calories from fat? This is because they actually use that oil to fry the nuts. It turns out that roasted nuts aren’t actually roasted at all – they’re fried. When you fry a healthy, nutritious food like nuts, you end up with an unhealthy fried food. The added salt really just adds to the problem.
So why are roasted nuts often fried instead of roasted? Making nuts this way has many advantages for the nut processors and growers: The nuts don’t have to be fresh; the oil doesn’t have to be fresh or of high quality; and, of course, fried salty crunchy foods are easy to keep eating – meaning you’ll have to buy more. Anytime you see oil on the list of ingredients in nuts, it can only mean one thing: They are fried.
To get truly roasted, NOT FRIED, you have to look for “dry-roasted nuts.” These will not list oil in the ingredients and are roasted using dry, hot air only.
ALMONDS & ALMOND FLOUR
What is it?
The almond is classified as a tree nut from the same family as the apricot and peach. It is however not a true nut. The almond fruit is actually a drupe consisting of an outer hull and a hard shell which contains the white edible seed. They are very tasty and one of the most popular nuts, for good reason. It is not just tasty and incredibly versatile but also nutritious. It contains significant amounts of beneficial nutrients such as monounsaturated fatty acids, dietary fiber, antioxidants, vitamins like riboflavin, and trace minerals such as magnesium.
What can I do with it?
Almonds are best eaten raw but can be roasted, salted and ground into nut butter or into flour or meal. You can make almond milk from the nuts which is a very good substitute for cow’s milk.
The flour is very popular in gluten and grain free cooking and baking. It has a mild and fairly sweet nutty taste. It combines well with coconut flour and also seed flours. Use appropriate starches to lighten your baking if necessary, however remember that doing so will increase the carbohydrate content.
What can it do for me?
The health benefits of almonds include lower blood sugar levels, reduced blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels. They can also reduce hunger and promote weight loss.
Almonds are low in carbohydrates, high in protein, fiber and fat. Protein and fiber increase satiety. That means they help you to feel more full, so you end up eating less and therefore fewer calories.
Almonds contain lots of healthy fats, fiber, protein, magnesium and vitamin E.
All things considered, almonds are as close to perfect as a food can get.
What can I substitute?
Macadamia flour is most commonly substituted as it has many similar properties. Baking results may however not be identical.
Sunflower seed flour could also be used as a substitute for those with nut allergies or sensitivities.
How do I store it?
Keep In an airtight container in the fridge. Nuts can become rancid quite rapidly when exposed to air and even more so when ground into flour. Keep it in the freezer for longer shelf life.
