These Raw Almond Kernels are creamy in texture and provide a natural source of protein, dietary fibre, vitamin E and other goodness.
Our almonds are grown in the Australian Riverland area. Almonds are harvested from the inside of the inedible fruit of the almond tree. They are not self-pollinating so at least two different varieties of trees are necessary for a productive orchard.
Bees play a vital role in the pollination of an almond crop in an orchard. Once the almond blossom dies off and the pollination has happened the almond “fruit” will start to appear. This grows and the almond matures on the tree, the fruit eventually splitting exposing the inside of the fruit which is the ‘almond in shell’. Once the almonds are ripe enough, they are harvested and are often left to dry out in rows on the orchard floor, then cracked (hulled) and processed, then they are ready to leave the farm.
