About Almond meal Edit
Wikipedia Article About Almond meal on Wikipedia
Almond meal and almond paste are made from ground sweet almonds, after the extraction of almond oil.
They are used in pastry and confectionery—in the manufacture of almond macaroons and other sweet pastries, in fancy cake and pie filling, etc.
Almond meal has recently become important in baking items for those on low carbohydrate diets. It adds a nice moist touch and a rich nutty taste to baked goods. Items baked with Almond meal tend to be "calorie dense"; lots of calories in a small package.
