California Almond Forms
The Lifecycle of Almonds (e-learning course)

Hulling, Shelling and Processing
in the Lifecycle of Almonds

Hulling and shelling are the first steps in preparing California Almonds for the market; the next step in processing almonds involves sorting and grading, followed by processes that change the form of the kernels.

California Almonds are an exceptionally versatile, value-adding ingredient. Available in more forms than any other nut, almonds are easy to work with from a formulation perspective and complement a wide array of food flavors and applications including: confectionery, bakery, dairy, prepared foods or snacks. Whether in whole, sliced, slivered, chopped, diced or ground form, either with the skin still on (natural) or removed (blanched), the application opportunities are unlimited. The selection of a particular almond form can vary the appearance, texture, flavor and application potential of the finished product.
