Discover the Exquisite Flavors of Our Raw Uzbek Almonds

They say good things come in small packages, and our Uzbek almonds are no exception.

Although smaller than some other varieties, these heirloom almonds pull no punches when it comes to taste. With a delicious marzipan finish, crunchy texture, and subtle, slightly tart finish, they're a flavour experience that must be munched to be believed.

We source them from the mountain ranges of Samarkand, where almond trees grow on remote valleys. Samarkand is a beautiful region of Uzbekistan famed for its fertile, exceptional soil and clean air. We work with local farmers, investing in their communities and helping improve the lives of their families through a local cooperative.

Experience the Natural Taste of Carefully Harvested Almonds

After being carefully harvested using natural methods, the shell of the almond is cracked open, and the kernels are gently sun-dried. Solar drying is very environmentally friendly and helps preserve the natural flavours of the nut.

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 harmful artificial processing methods, for sustainable snacking that's Right by Nature.

Our wild Uzbek almonds are 100% raw, organic and of exceptional quality. They're a great source of protein, fibre, vitamin E, and other minerals too. 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 the healthy functioning of the nervous system.

Almonds are perfect for everyday snacking, but they also have a wide range of other uses. They can be made into milk or to create plant-based cheese. They're also great in mueslis or snack bars or toasted and used to top a tasty salad.

FAQ

Almonds are a good source of dietary fiber. In every 1-ounce (28-gram) serving of almonds, there are approximately 3.5 grams of dietary fiber. This is about 14% of the daily recommended intake of fiber for an adult on a 2,000 calorie diet. Plantlife's Organic Wild Almonds contain 12 grams of fiber per 100 grams of serving.

Yes, almonds are classified as nuts. Almonds are the edible seeds of the almond tree, which is a species of tree native to the Middle East and South Asia. Almonds are commonly referred to as nuts due to their hard outer shell and their culinary uses. From a botanical perspective, almonds are not true nuts, but rather a type of drupe. A drupe is a fruit that has an outer fleshy part that surrounds a hard shell with a seed inside. Other examples of drupes include peaches, plums, and cherries. However, in the culinary world, almonds are typically classified as nuts because of their texture and flavor profile. Almonds are often used in both sweet and savory dishes and are commonly eaten raw or roasted and salted as a snack.

Yes, almonds are vegan. Almonds are often used in vegan recipes as a source of protein, healthy fats, and other important nutrients. They can be eaten on their own as a snack, used to make almond milk or almond butter, or added to a variety of recipes such as salads, desserts, and baked goods.

Absolutely, almonds are a fantastic choice for those looking to incorporate nutritious snacks into their diet. Packed with essential nutrients, almonds offer a wealth of health benefits. They are an excellent source of vitamin E, magnesium, and healthy fats, which are crucial for maintaining heart health. Additionally, almonds are rich in fiber, aiding in digestion and promoting a feeling of fullness, which can help in weight management. The protein content in almonds also makes them a great snack for energy and muscle repair, making them ideal for active individuals or anyone looking to add a nutritious boost to their diet. Including almonds in your daily routine can contribute to overall well-being and provide essential nutrients your body needs.

Yes, almonds are excellent for skin health. They are rich in vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the skin from damaging UV rays and environmental pollutants, potentially reducing signs of aging and promoting skin repair and nourishment. The healthy fats in almonds also contribute to keeping the skin hydrated and maintaining its barrier function, which can lead to a more supple and smooth complexion. Regular consumption of almonds, as part of a balanced diet, or the use of almond oil topically, can support skin health and enhance its natural glow.
