Product Description

Organic almonds are the same kind that have been used by people since ancient times. They are still present now in existing ancient medical techniques such as Ayurveda. All almonds as well as products made from them – almond oil, butter, and milk – are highly appreciated as being powerhouses of energy and quality nutrients. In organic almonds, these features are more noticeable.

Health Benefits

The health benefits of organic almonds are extensive, which is easily explained by their high content of nutrients, minerals, and vitamins. Their consumption promotes overall health, strengthens the immune system, and protects against some serious illnesses, such as:

  1. Cardiovascular diseases.
    Organic almonds have the highest concentration of monounsaturated fats among nuts. This makes them very helpful in promoting heart and vessel health. Regular consumption of them results in increasing the level of high density lipoproteins (good cholesterol) and lowering the level of low density lipoproteins (bad cholesterol). This prevents formation of blood clots in the vessels and lowers the risk of stroke. Vitamin E, folic acid, potassium, and magnesium are acknowledged to be instrumental for maintaining cardiovascular health.
  2. Diabetes.
    Due to the high content of dietary fiber, organic almonds have a low glycemic index, which helps regulate the pace of absorption and processing of glucose when it enters the blood. They also help prevent the rising of glucose and insulin levels after meals. Being rich in fats, they curb the appetite, thus regulating sugar levels in the blood.
  3. Cancer.
    Organic almonds, especially the skin, are a rich source of antioxidants – phenols, flavonoids, and phenolic acids. This makes these nuts invaluable for supporting the immune system and protecting cells against damage by free radicals, which is thought to be one of the causes of cancer. Additionally, they contain alpha-tocopherol, a form of vitamin E, which improves red cells concentration in the blood and inhibits cell growth in cancerous tumors.
  4. Osteoporosis.
    Phosphorus is one of the minerals that is responsible for the density and strength of the bones. One ounce of organic almonds provides 15% of the daily requirement of this mineral.

    My wife makes cookies using these almonds, ground in a blender to use instead of flour. They are amazingly good cookies!

    Overall I am satisfied with almonds. I soak them in water before I eat. I find some seeds don’t sink. I do not know if those are less nutritious. I probably buy again from them.

    Love these. Convenient reclosable bag. I put these in my smoothie every morning. Might need to rinse these before eating them by themself though , they have a pretty strong almost bitter almond flavor on the outside which is ok in my smoothie or cooking but strong by itself.

    I use these exclusively for almond milk and have had a great experience with them. Great for almond milk, have not yet turned the pulp into almond flour. They’re as raw as raw gets. Also, great for cooking and the like! After my first few 2lb bags I decided to buy larger to save time and money. If you plan on using these regularly I recommend up-buying as you’ll save more money the larger you buy, of course. I will be back.

    • Hello StoryStarlyn! Is it necessary to soak nuts? The answer to that question is absolutely!

      Nuts have phytic acid. Phytic acid is also found in grains and legumes. Just as with grains and legumes, soaking nuts is essential for proper digestions. When eating nuts that haven’t been soaked, the phytic acid binds to minerals in the gastrointestinal tract and can not be absorbed in the intestine and to many bound minerals can lead to mineral deficiencies. By soaking, you are breaking down the phytic acid so it can be absorbed properly.

      Nuts also have high amounts of enzymes inhibitors. This is another reason why un soaked nuts are hard to digest. Soaking nuts neutralizes the enzymes allowing for proper digestion.

    One advice if you’re new to buying almonds for almond milk, 2 pounds doesn’t seem like a lot but they balloon up a ton and you really only need 1 cup for 3-4 cups of water. I think after soaking I had around 10 cups or so of almonds and I had to frantically find recipes for the milk and pulp!

    I had been purchasing almonds from a local source for many years. I have them every day for breakfast with yogurt and fruit. However, I was unable to find them any longer which turned out to my benefit. The almonds from Food to Live are far superior to my previous brand. I will continue to purchase the almonds plus other products they offer.

      Anette, it’s better to presoak raw almonds to release the phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors. About 8-12 hours soaking (in filtered water) is recommended. Otherwise you lose a lot of the health benefits of using them raw.

    I use these almonds to make almond milk with. I have experimented with many different almonds, even the bulk almonds from the bin at healthfood store. I don’t know of it’s because these almonds are truly raw or not but these almonds produce the tastiest, creamiest almond milk than any others I’ve tried. I will continue to buy these almonds for their truly raw health benefits and the taste as well.

    • How to make Almond Flower .

      Makes about 1 cup

      1 cup soaked organic almonds (blanched for flour, raw with skins for meal)

      1. Place soaked and dried almonds in food processor or blender.
      2. Process on high, pulsing for 15-20 second intervals until you achieve a meal-like texture. Be careful not to over-process or you will end up with almond butter instead!
      And that’s it! Go ahead and let out a sigh of relief if you want to- real food doesn’t always have to be complicated. Keep almond flour sealed in an airtight container. It stays fresh for about one week.

    • Hello kamcmahon,
      I hope to answer all your questions {wink}

      First lets start with Almond Milk. btw you can always find this sort of information and much more (coupons, things on sale, etc) on our Instagram account https://www.instagram.com/food_2_live/. This recipe below is actually from there.

      Almond Milk

      1 cup raw, unprocessed almonds 
2 cups filtered water, or more if you prefer
2-4 Medjool dates pitted
1 whole vanilla bean (or ½ teaspoon vanilla extract)
A pinch of fine grain sea salt
Place almonds in a bowl, cover with water and soak overnight (or at least 8 hours). The longer you soak them the creamier the milk will be. 

      Directions
      
Drain almonds and rinse several times until water is clear.
Using a high-speed blender, combine almonds with filtered water and blend until smooth, about 1-3 minutes.
Strain the mixture through a nut milk bag.
Rinse blender and return the milk to the blender. Scrape the inside of the vanilla bean and add the seeds to the blender. Add sea salt and dates, blend until combined. Taste and adjust the flavor to suit your taste.
Pour into a glass jar to store in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. Shake jar very well before using as the mixture may separate.

Vegan Baklava

Vegan Baklava

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar or Sucanat
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup walnut pieces – http://bit.ly/1y3rucg
  • 1 cup shelled pistachios – http://bit.ly/1dOKTVD
  • 3/4 cup raw almonds – http://bit.ly/1HY7Ocz
  • 12 sheets phyllo dough, thawed overnight in the refrigerator
  • 1/2 cup light olive oil or melted coconut oil, plus more for the pan
  • 1 cup agave syrup (or, for a non-vegan version, honey)
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • Zest from 1 large lemon, preferably organic, removed in 1 long strip


DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Oil a 13-by-9-inch baking pan.
  2. In a blender, blitz the brown sugar or Sucanat and cinnamon until powdery. Transfer to a small bowl.
  3. In the blender or a food processor, pulse the walnuts until mostly finely chopped but still a bit chunky. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in 1/3 of the sugar mixture. Do the same for the pistachios and the almonds, dumping each mixture into a separate bowl.
  4. Cover the phyllo sheets with a large piece plastic wrap, then cover that with a towel that’s just barely damp. Remove 1 sheet and place it on a clean work surface. Brush half the surface with olive or coconut oil. Fold the sheet in half and place it in the prepared pan, then brush the top with oil. Repeat with 2 more sheets. Scatter the walnuts over the phyllo in an even layer. Repeat the layering with 3 more sheets phyllo, the pistachios, 3 more sheets phyllo, and the almonds. Layer the last 3 sheets phyllo on top.
  5. Using a sharp paring knife, score the top layer of phyllo sheets across the short side of the pan to form 6 strips. Next, score the phyllo diagonally from corner to corner, and then score parallel to that line 2 times on each side. (Or if that just completely confused you, just cut it into squares or triangles however you wish.) Bake for 40 minutes, until the phyllo is lightly golden and crisp.
  6. In a small saucepan, combine the agave syrup, water, and lemon zest. Bring to a boil over high heat, then lower the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Let cool slightly, then remove and discard the zest.
  7. Pour the syrup over the pastry. Cover the baklava and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Stored in the refrigerator, tightly covered, the baklava will keep for about 2 weeks.
