Premium Raw Almonds from the Slopes of Mount Etna

Almonds are loved across the world for their delicate flavour, great nutritional profile and versatility in snacking and other culinary uses. But not all almonds are created equal – and we have a few strategies to ensure ours are the most naturally delicious on the planet.

We source our almonds exclusively from the sun-soaked slopes of Mount Etna, Sicily, picking the finest nuts from the beautiful almond trees. The result of these ideal conditions is premium quality raw almonds, which are then gently sun-dried to preserve the exceptional flavour and natural goodness.

The Natural Goodness of Our Raw Almonds

Our modern facilities use a combination of eco-friendly pressure treatment and cutting-edge spectroscopy to check, clean, and select our products, guaranteeing premium quality in every pack. The whole process is done without the use of harmful artificial processing methods, for sustainable snacking that's Right by Nature.

Almonds have a great taste and are a natural source of healthy fats, fiber, protein, magnesium, and vitamin E. Science has shown the incredible health benefits of vitamin E, including its ability to protect cells from oxidative stress - an imbalance of antioxidants and free radicals in the body. The nutrients in almonds also support cell division and healthy functioning of the nervous system.

While their delicate flavour and crunchy texture make them perfect for snacking, our Sicilian almonds can be used to make almond flour, almond drinks, and baked goods, as well as a premium decoration for cakes.

Yes, almonds can be a beneficial addition to a weight loss diet. Despite being calorie-dense, they are high in protein and dietary fiber, which can help you feel full and satisfied for longer periods. This sense of satiety can reduce overall calorie intake by curbing the urge to snack on less healthy options. Additionally, the monounsaturated fats in almonds are associated with promoting a healthy metabolism and fat burning. However, moderation is key, as almonds are also high in calories. Including a handful of almonds as part of a balanced diet can aid in weight management and support weight loss goals.

Although almonds aren't toxic to dogs, they're not recommended as a snack for them due to several risks. Almonds can be a choking hazard, particularly for smaller breeds, and may cause digestive distress because dogs often struggle to digest them properly. Additionally, the high fat content in almonds can lead to pancreatitis in dogs, a serious health condition. Seasoned or salted almonds, which are common in the human diet, can also pose health risks due to their added ingredients. For your dog's health and safety, it's best to avoid giving them almonds and opt for pet-safe treats instead.

Yes, almonds are beneficial for managing cholesterol levels. They are high in monounsaturated fats and vitamin E, both of which are known to help lower levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol while maintaining or potentially increasing HDL (good) cholesterol. Additionally, the fiber content in almonds can also aid in reducing cholesterol absorption in the bloodstream. Incorporating a moderate amount of almonds into your diet can contribute to a heart-healthy lipid profile, as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. However, it's always best to consult with a healthcare provider for personalized dietary advice, especially if you have existing health conditions.
