Almond meal, almond flour or ground almond is made from
ground sweet almonds. Almond flour is usually made with blanched almonds (no
skin), whereas almond meal can be made both with whole or blanched almonds. The
consistency is more like corn meal than wheat flour.
It is used in pastry and confectionery– in the manufacture
of almond macarons and other sweet pastries, in cake and pie filling, such as
Sachertorte and is one of the two main ingredients of marzipan and almond
paste. In France almond meal is an important ingredient in frangipane, the
filling of traditional Galette des Rois cake.
Almond meal has recently become important in baking items
for those on low carbohydrate diets. It adds moistness and a rich nutty taste
to baked goods. Items baked with almond meal tend to be calorie-dense.
Almond meal has a low heat conductivity.
Almonds have high levels of polyunsaturated fats in them.
Typically, the omega 6 in almonds is protected from oxidation by its surface
and vitamin E. When almonds are ground, this protective skin is broken and
exposed surface area increases dramatically, greatly enhancing the nut's
tendency to oxidize.
