What is a Blanched Almond?
Blanched almonds are simply raw almonds that have undergone a process that resulted in the removal of the almond skin. The process requires that raw almonds be placed in a pot of boiling water and left there for one minute. The water is then drained off and the almonds are rinsed with cold water. Once cooled, the skins can easily be slipped off revealing cream-colored whole blanched almonds that can be used in many culinary dishes.
Blanched almonds are a versatile, delicious, protein-rich, high fiber, low sodium, cholesterol-free nut that can be included in a healthy eating or weight management diet.
A blanched almond is void of the slight hint of bitterness that is sometimes noticeable in a raw almond with the skin on. Their pleasant flavor and multiple health benefits are excellent reasons for making them a regular part of your diet. They’re a great energy booster. They’re also good for brain health and heart health. They can help boost immunity, reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, regulate blood pressure, improve indigestion and reduce the risk of colon cancer. Making whole blanched almonds a regular part of your diet can improve your hair, bones, teeth and the look and feel of your skin.
