We all know that almonds are a wonderful addition to your diet. The skins contain high levels of dietary fibre which is important in maintaining a good digestive system. The nuts themselves are a great source of protein, vitamin E, omega-6, iron, calcium and magnesium. But here are some facts that you may not have known about this popular nut…

1. Almonds are related to Peaches

Almonds come from the prunus family – the same as peaches, cherries and apricots! The nuts that we are so familiar with are actually the seed of the fruit. Unlike its fruity cousins, you can’t actually eat the fleshy part of the almond fruit.

2. Almonds can keep for a long time


Whole unblanched almonds will keep well for up to two years in the fridge. Their long storage life is due in part to vitamin E which helps keep them fresh. If you don’t have room in the fridge then we recommend sealing the bag with a freshness clip and storing your almonds in a nice cool, dark place.
