Almond flour is flour made from blanched almonds (almonds without skin). This flour is grainier that wheat flour and it is similar to corn flour, but it is still quite fine in texture. Almond flour is used in pastries, baking and candies. Most famous almond flour products are macarons, French cookies and Marzipan, which is basically made from almond paste. Almond flour is naturally gluten free flour and it is ideal for individuals who have sensitivities and allergies to wheat and gluten. This includes persons who have Celiac's disease and need to have and consume completely wheat and gluten-free diet. Almond flour is very moist, with a subtle nutty flavor and it is easy to use.
