Our Organic, Gluten-Free Almond Flour is made with choice, California-grown almonds. It is a low-carb alternative to standard wheat flour. They are not blanched to remove the brown skin because in recipe tests we found no difference between the two types of almond flour and actually believe the less processed flour (unbleached) makes a moister, tastier recipe. You will love the subtle nutty flavor this flour creates and be relieved to know that it contains no chemicals, no additives, and no fillers.
Sometimes known as almond meal, this flour is particularly popular with customers on gluten-free diets, as it serves for almost all of the same uses as wheat flour. Many gluten-free cookbooks feature the flour prominently in their recipes.
Compared to other flours, the flour is especially flavorful, with a nutty taste that works well with many other foods. It produces baked goods that are especially light and moist. It's also very easy to use, and doesn't require any sifting or kneading.
How to Use Almond Flour
Almond flour is a popular alternative flour due to its subtly sweet taste, high nutrition content, and low-carb attributes. To use it as a substitute for wheat flour, replace the indicated amount of wheat flour in the recipe with the same quantity of almond flour. Baked goods made from almond flour should sit longer once removed from the oven because of their more delicate nature.
Shelf-Life: This Almond Flour will store for up to 12 months in the sealed package under ideal storage conditions (cool, dry place). Almond flour should be refrigerated or frozen for optimal freshness and shelf life. For best results allow flour to return to room temperature prior to use.
This almond flour arrives ready-to-use in a vapor-barrier re-sealable package to help the flour maintain its freshness.
Ingredients: Almonds from California.
Allergen information: Contains Almonds, which are a tree nut. Wilderness Family Naturals is a gluten-free facility. Tree nuts including Coconut, Pecans, Hazelnuts, Pistachios, Brazil nuts, Walnuts, Cashews and more are the main allergens in our production facility and warehouse.
Protein and Carbohydrates: Almond flour is high in protein (1 serving - 1/3 cup - has 6 grams of protein. Compare that to an egg which as 5.5 grams!) Almond flour is low in both carbohydrates and sugar. It does, however, have 4 grams of fiber in each serving. This makes it an attractive option for customers on paleo or low-carb diets. Protein is great for maintaining and building healthy muscles.
Along with being a good source of protein, almond flour also contains calcium and iron.
