From whole almonds. Our natural almond meal is ground from whole almonds with the skin intact. Almond meal contains 6 grams of carbohydrates per serving. It is gluten free and a good source of fiber. Use it in place of regular flour for low carb baking or try it as a breading for meats and vegetables. It is the quintessential ingredient for many French pastries, like the classic frangipane and the ever-popular macarons. If fine pastry baking is not up your alley, simply adding some almond meal to your favorite baked good will add a wonderful richness. Almond Meal can even be used in place of graham cracker crumbs for a decadent no-bake pie crust. Wholesome. An employee-owned company. To your good health - Bob Moore. Gluten free. You can see our quality! Natural almond meal brings the rich flavor of almonds to your baked goods. A deep caramel color is not uncommon for baked goods made with natural almond meal. Expect baked goods using natural almond meal to have a slight moistness and tender crumb. Bob's Red Mill products labeled gluten free are batch tested in our quality control laboratory. We use an ELISA Gluten Assay test to confirm that a product is gluten free. Dear Friends, In 2010, I announced that I was handing ownership of Bob's Red Mill over to my employees through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). Over the years I have observed the purchase of many companies. More often than not, the dreams and values of the companies' founders are laid to waste in the endless march for money. For me, the decision was easy because I could not stand the thought of our stone-milling tradition, our mission to improve people's health through whole grains and the love we put into every bag being compromised in any way. I'm still the chief miller of this company and intend to be for the rest of my life - but I'm not a young man. The best way for me to preserve the dream that my wife Charlee and I began realizing over forty years ago is to give my employees the means to stay true to our vision and to directly reap the rewards of their hard work long after I'm gone. The power of ownership is immeasurable and makes for happier employees, better products and satisfied customers. Thanks for choosing our brand and may you all cherish the fact that when you buy a package of it, you're casting note for a world where employees and good old-fashioned values come first. To your good health. - Bob Moore. Product of USA.
