Fun Facts about Almonds:

  • Almonds are the most nutrient-dense tree nut. One ounce of almonds (20-25 almonds) contains 160 calories and only 1 gram of saturated fat and no cholesterol. Almonds are also an excellent source of vitamin E, magnesium, protein and potassium.
  • The earliest varieties of almonds were found in China, and carried by traders down the "Silk Road" between Asia and the Mediterranean. Before long, almond trees flourished in the Mediterranean region.
  • Almonds were introduced to California in the mid 1700s, by Franciscan monks from Spain. Today the state's approx. 6,000 almond growers produce 100 percent of the commercial domestic supply and 80 percent of the world's supply.
  • Chocolate manufacturers use approximately 40% of the world's almonds!
  • It takes more than 1.2 million bee hives to pollinate California's almond orchards.

A Little Bit About Our Business…

 

East Wind Almond Butter is made from Mission variety almonds. Our buyers secure the best tasting almonds from mature groves in northern California. We never purchase almonds sprayed with PPO and our growers provide certificate of analysis to ensure the quality of the almonds.

After dry-roasting and cooling, we mill the unblanched almonds into Smooth or Crunchy Almond Butter. With the skins left on, East Wind Almond Butter has a dark, rich color and flavor. Our Almond Butter has no added ingredients— just fresh-roasted almonds. No stabilizers, preservatives, artificial flavors, or colors. Almond butter is wonderful on sliced apples and pears. And, it works great as a peanut butter replacement in your favorite recipes. You can order East Wind Almond Butter in 16-oz. jars (4-pack), 16-oz. glass jars (case) or bulk, in 15-lb. tubs or 35-lb. tubs.
