Loads of bees are killed in the production of these.

Italian and Spanish almonds are far more ethical, and are obviously lower carbon footprint to the UK too.

Sainsbury's do 200g of organic Italian almonds for only around £2.30

Worth paying a quid more for almonds that are better for you, wildlife and the environment.

The standard price is poor value. Most almonds are Californian (around 80% of the world's supply), but never seen that advertised on the front before. Californian almonds should be avoided.

Nope

Moderation with anything calorie dense is sensible, but there's nothing artery clogging about nuts.

In fact the monounsaturated fats will promote good cholesterol, so a better cholesterol profile, and promote cardiovascular health.

Almonds are incredibly good for you.
Put almonds in a paper bag, put a bit of salt & chilli powder (optional) press start on micro for about 2mins or so ( depending on the quantity) & voila - dry roasted with salt/chilli almonds😝

Will give it a go.
Great offer. Even at 1.99 for 200grams these are a good deal.
Posted before?
Worth comparing against Asian shops if you need larger quantities as they work our lot cheaper especially if they have it on offer.

Will keep the bees in mind, next time I'll have 1 almond less to show my support.

This is the best price I've seen anywhere for organic almonds, regardless of quantity.

It's a great deal.

Also, I had very few if any bitter almonds in mine.

Previously I bought organic almonds from Tesco, for £2.70 I believe, but they contained quite a few bitter almonds.

European almonds will always have some bitter ones in, as they're spliced from the bitter almond tree.

But really, it's quite important to buy organic with nuts etc, and buying sprayed almonds that killed loads of bees and that were shipped from the US is nuts, pardon the pun.

Sainsburys for organic almonds as covered.

For bulk other nuts, I'd try realfoodsource.com

Not used them yet, but intend to. They sell organic and non organic, in large quantities at generally very good prices it seems.

I mainly buy large packs of Almond Flour for keto baking (Produced in the USA). Buying Organic from Italy is a lot dearer than from the US (£2.20 for 100g for the organic EU version) and isn't viable for me. I pay roughly £1 per 100g of Almond Flour from the states (pretty good when there are no trade deals and the extra tariffs from the US)...

Organic is normally twice the price.

US produce in general is pretty unethical even before you consider how far it has to ship.

But yeah, I get that it costs more.

The organic almonds will be better for you too though.

I have coconut flour, that's meant for baking (although not used it for that). It's a lot cheaper and easier getting that organic than almond flour.

So that's another option.

Almonds are one of the pricier and more difficult options.

Edit, also did you check out realfoodsource?

realfoodsource.com/pro…ur/

£1.40 per 100g of organic (Spanish) almond flour there.

So that's clearly the better option. Only 40% more.

They sell loads of stuff for Keto baking:

No probs. Sadly there isn't much awareness of it. I wasn't until a few years ago. I'm not vegan or even vegetarian, but you'll likely find many eating Californian almonds and indirectly causing the death of loads of bees (they use them to pollinate the almonds, then spray the whole lot with planes, killing the bees), which doesn't make sense if one's vegan etc.

Was pleasantly surprised to find them for that price in Sainsbury's. The same price as their non organic, and the cheapest I've seen anywhere. They must have a good sourcing deal!

Wilko do bags of all kinds of different nuts for £1 inc Almonds (100g). Just be aware that Cashews and Peanuts are not keto.

Are these dry roast ???

Kindest regards
Feel guilty about heating the real after reading the comments re: bee genocide... But it is a good price on already competitively priced produce.

Thanks to all the commenters above... Never though about use of pesticides with these... Will endeavour to make more ethical choices.

Nonetheless, thanks for posting OP
Nuts are very high in fat.

Interesting and useful. Any thoughts on any other nuts?

I have been avoiding cashews since, several months ago, I saw a report about Indian women who get terrible burns from peeling the shells from them. It was horrifying what had happened to their hands. Apparently there is some chemical in the shells which, in small amounts, should not be a problem but these women were peeling the nuts all day every day.
These almonds are tasty!

Will have to look at cashews, cheers.

Avoid brazil nuts, at least non organic, as they're typically high in aflatoxins - a carcinogen

And walnuts are very good for you.

I use macademia nut oil for cooking - arguably the healthiest cooking oil you can use. Avocado oil is cheaper and comes close (but is less neutral)

Edit:
One source lists these as especially bad (food.r-biopharm.com/new…ts/):
peanuts, pistachios, dried figs and hazelnuts

And another lists (healwithfood.org/afl…ins):
peanuts, pistaschios

Peanuts are actually a legume (not a nut or seed), acid forming, and not as good for you.

Need to get some more almond butter. Pricey but great stuff. You can make your own too.

Cashews seem good for not having aflatoxins.
