Blanched Almond Pieces

Olam produces Blanched Almond Pieces. These are made by first removing the skin from the almond, this is known as the blanching process in which the almonds are put through a warm bath a process called plasticizing. 

The almond is so soft that the skin can be pinched right off as it passed through rubber rollers. This is done so that a pure white almond can then be slivered. These matchstick shaped almonds can provide a unique crunch and texture in salads. They pair perfectly in grain bowls and used in stir-fry. When roasted and/or flavored they are a delicious ingredient addition to any snack.

The Blanched Almond Pieces has its origins in the US and ships from our California warehouse. The pieces are white/light yellow/pale ivory in color and have a crunchy texture. The USDA grades allow for certain tolerances: 

  • Foreign Matter - 0.2%
  • Particles & Dust - 1%
  • Serious Defects - 3%
  • Other Defects - 5%
  • Adhering skin (>6.4mm) - 2%

Our customers can purchase bulk Almonds and wholesale Almonds. For more information on our warehouses please click here

California Almonds

Eighty two percent of the world's almonds are grown in California.  The soil and temperatures for almond trees are perfect, with cold winters allowing the trees to rest and February temperatures warm enough for trees to bloom and bees to pollinate their flowers. Once the flowers have been pollinated, the orchards are quickly transformed into the growing season with nutlets forming within the days following.  By March the tree nuts have started to grow, the leaves have pushed out and the orchards are lush with green leaves and hulls.

Throughout the growing season, the hulls can be seen getting larger and larger, by June the hulls have grown to their maximum size and the nut inside the shell begins to change from its gelatinous form to a solid nut we all know and love.

By August the hulls start to split open exposing the shell.  It is time for harvest.  With almost 1.2 million acres in production, the process of harvest will take 8 to 10 weeks. 

Blanched Almond Pieces

Our almonds are grown in California and processed at our Hughson Nut facility.  Blanched Almond Pieces are creamy, white almond pieces approximately sized at 3.2mm thickness and makeup a variety of shapes and sizes consisting of some wholes, splits, and pieces.  They have undergone a blanching process, where the skin is removed from the almond and put through a warm bath, a process called plasticizing making the almond so soft that the skin can be pinched right off.  These almonds are commonly used as toppings or garnishes in salads and savory dishes.  This product is certified gluten-free, Halal, Kosher, and vegan-friendly.  For full product specification of Blanched Almond Pieces, please click here.
