Description :

Shelled almonds 250g come from the almond tree, which belongs to the family Rosaceae. This plant is native to central and western Asia; introduced into Sicily by the Phoenicians, nowadays it can be found in all Mediterranean countries and particularly in America.

They already grew in the Stone Age and their cultivation is thought to go back to the Bronze Age, therefore they’re the first cultivated fruit in ancient times. The Romans used them to prevent drunkenness. Charlemagne contributed to the spread of almond trees, because they provide food that has energizing and therapeutic properties.

Almonds are digestible, nutritious and high in proteins. They contain emulsin, an enzyme that aids in the digestion of cereals and starchy food. They should be eaten in specific cases when the organism needs energy: pregnancy, convalescence, sports activities, physical and mental overwork.

Almonds are especially used in bakeries to prepare desserts (nougats, Jordan almonds, amaretti, biscuits, cupcakes and marzipan). They’re perfect as snacks, instead of biscuits and fries. They’re great in salads, second courses, with cereals or in yogurt with fresh fruit.
