Blanched Slivered Almonds
The almond is one of the most nutritious nuts, with many vitamins, minerals and healthy phytochemicals. They’re rich in oleic acids and palmitoleic acids that lower bad cholesterol and promote good cholesterol. Those on a gluten-free diet can use almonds and almond flour as a substitute for grains.
They are now the seventh largest export item in the U.S., and California grows 80% of the world’s almonds, over 400,000 acres of land. More than 25 types make up california’s largest nut crop.
Replacing grain or potato-based with almond products may help lower blood sugar levels. Even when you eat meals including grains, having almonds as well can lower the glycemic index. Hence adding almonds to the diet can help moderate the risk of diabetes & cardiovascular disease.
