Blanched Almond Flour

In lieu of the coupon found in the Gilbert Times (Arizona) this past week (Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday) for our AZ Retail Store, I thought I would post about Blanched Almond Flour. This is a very popular product and can be purchased On-line (honeyvillegrain.com) or in the Retail Stores. It is a Certified Gluten Free product and it also very popular with those on the HCG diet.

All about Blanched Almond Flour:

-Sold in 5 lb. bags (about 23 cups)
-Often used as a wheat flour substitute
-Full of protein and dietary fiber (see nutritional info below)
-Almond Flour is also known as Almond Meal, Almond Powder, Ground Almonds, Nut Powder, or Nut Meal
-Blanched Almond Flour is almonds, with the skins removed, milled into fine almond flour (want the skins milled into flour as well? Try the Natural Almond Flour)
-Honeyville's Blanched Almond Flour is 100% Pure Almonds, with no additional ingredients added
-Almond Flour is not subjected to any chemical or steam treatments.  The only process that occurs, other than milling, is that Blanched Almonds go through a hot water bath to remove the skins.  Rest assured that with Honeyville Almond Flours, you are getting great tasting, additive-free product.
