Eating almonds regularly can result in quite substantial health benefits! Research has shown that the polyunsaturated fatty acids contained in almonds stabilise blood cholesterol levels, reduce blood pressure and inhibit inflammatory reactions.

Further benefits include the high level of B vitamins, vitamin E, magnesium, phosphorous and manganese. Vitamin E is an antioxidant, protecting our bodies from harmful oxidation, free radicals and stabilising the cell membranes. Almonds also provide the body with calcium, iron, potassium and zinc [1 to 3].

They are an excellent choice as part of a balanced healthy diet.

Description:

Our Sicilian almonds are remarkable for their size and shape, as well as the very low percentage of broken pieces. Their agreeably soft and nutty flavour is also impressive. The almonds are crunchy and well suited for using directly or combining with other foods.

Origin and Production:

We source our organic almond exclusively from the company Damiano in Sicily.
We have been cooperating closely with Damiano for a long time and we value the very high quality of each other’s work. Sicilian almond products are a first-rate supplement to our large range of nut products from Uzbekistan, both in taste and quality.
The almonds are from the island of Silicy and are harvested, pitted, blanched and gently dried there. Almond flour is then made from the whole almonds.

Product purity:

The Almonds are pressure treated and controlled in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests.

Organic ingredients: whole almond

Why you should germinate our nuts!

Germinating nuts: 

 Inhibits and reduces levels of phytic acids

Phytic acids occur in natural foods, inhibiting digestion of minerals. Reducing amounts of phytic acids allows the minerals to be absorbed by the body, providing it with the associated benefits [1].

  • Inhibits and reduces tannins

The plant deploys tannins for its own protection. When excessive amounts of tannins are digested, flatulence (digestive problems) may result and consumption of iron and calcium (or minerals) may be reduced [2].

  • neutralises enzyme inhibitors

The human body needs certain reactions to take place in order to function efficiently, and certain enzymes are needed for these reactions. If the enzymes are functionally inhibited, the body can’t work optimally. That’s why it’s important to reduce inhibition to a minimum.

  • Supports generation of useful enzymes and
  • Increases vitamin levels, especially B vitamins

The germination processes cause the plant to start budding again. Many important vital substances are activated and mobilised, for example vitamins and enzymes. This makes germinated nuts considerably more nutritious than nuts that are not germinated.

How to germinate the nuts:

Good results are obtained when the nuts are placed into lukewarm water in the evening and left overnight. The nuts will have germinated by the next morning. If you have more nuts than you need in the morning, store them in the refrigerator without the water. If you want to keep them for a longer period, you can dry the nuts on a dry surface or in the oven.

Depending on the foodstuff used, germination periods are generally around 7 to 24 hours.
