    ALMOND DESCRIPTION

    HISTORY OF THE ALMOND TREE

    The Almond (Prunus dulcis, Prunus amygdales or Amygdalus communis) is a small deciduous tree belonging to the subfamily of Prunoideae of the family Rosacae. An Almond is also the fruit of this tree. The fruit lacks the sweet fleshy outer covering of other members of Prunus (such as plum and cherry), the Almond has a leathery coat, called a Hull. The Hull contains the edible kernel, commonly called the nut, which is inside the hard shell. The wild form of the Amond grows in the Mediterranean region in parts of the Levant. Almonds must first have been taken into cultivation in that region. Before cultivation and domestication occured, wild Almonds were harvested as food and were processed by leaching or roasting to remove their toxicity. Domesticated Almonds appear in the Early Bronze Age (3000-2000 BC) of the Near East, or possible a little earlier. A well-known archaeological example of Almond is the fruits foun in Tutankhamun's tomb in Egypt (1325 BC), probably imported from Levant.

    The almond is a deciduous tree, growing 4 to 10 meters (13 to 33 feet) in height, with a trunk of up to 30 centimeter (12 inches) in diameter. The young twigs are green at first, becoming purplish where exposed to sunlight, then grey in their second year. The leaves are 3 to 5 inches long, with a serrated margin and a 2.5 centimeter (1 inch) petiole. The flowers are white to pale pink, 3 to 5 centimeters (1 to 2 inches) in diameter with five petals, produced singly or in pairs and appearing before the leaves in early spring. Almonds begin bearing an economic crop in the third year after planting. Trees reach full bearing five to six years after planting. The fruit matures in the autumn, 7 to 8 months after flowering.

    almond tree flowers, fruit and seeds


    The almond (Prunus amygdalus, syn. Prunus dulcis, Amygdalus communis, Amygdalus dulcis), is a species of tree native to the Middle East and South Asia. "Almond" is also the name of the edible and widely cultivated seed of this tree. Within the genus Prunus, it is classified with the peach in the subgenus Amygdalus, distinguished from the other subgenera by the corrugated shell (endocarp) surrounding the seed.

    The fruit of the almond is a drupe, consisting of an outer hull and a hard shell with the seed (which is not a true nut) inside. Shelling almonds refers to removing the shell to reveal the seed. Almonds are sold shelled (i.e., after the shells are removed), or unshelled (i.e., with the shells still attached). Blanched almonds are shelled almonds that have been treated with hot water to soften the seedcoat, which is then removed to reveal the white embryo. The almond fruit measures 3.5 to 6 centimeters (1 to 2 inches) long. In botanical terms it is not a nut, but a drupe. The outer covering or exocarp, fleshy in other members of Prunus such as the plum and cherry, is instead a thick leathery grey-green coat (with a downy exterior), called the hull. Inside the hull is a reticulated hard woody shell (like the outside of a peach pit) called the endocarp. Inside the shell is the edible seed, commonly called a nut. Generally, one seed is present, but occasionally there are two.

    ALMOND ORIGINS & HISTORY

    The almond is native to the Mediterranean climate region of the Middle East, eastward as far as the Indus. It was spread by humans in ancient times along the shores of the Mediterranean into northern Africa and southern Europe and more recently transported to other parts of the world, notably California, United States. The wild form of domesticated almond grows in parts of the Levant; almonds must first have been taken into cultivation in this region. The fruit of the wild forms contains the glycoside amygdalin, which becomes transformed into deadly prussic acid (hydrogen cyanide) after crushing, chewing, or any other injury to the seed.

    Almond is considered to be one of the earliest domesticated tree nuts. Wild almonds are bitter, the kernel produces deadly cyanide upon mechanical handling, and eating even a few dozen at one sitting can be fatal. Selection of the sweet type, from the many bitter types in wild, marked the beginning of almond domestication. How humans selected the sweet type remains a mystery. It is unclear as to which wild ancestor of the almond created the domesticated species. Ladizinsky suggests the taxon Amygdalus fenzliana (Fritsch) Lipsky is the most likely wild ancestor of the almond in part because it is native of Armenia and western Azerbaijan where it was apparently domesticated.

    While wild almond species are toxic, domesticated almonds are not; Jared Diamond argues that a common genetic mutation causes an absence of glycoside amygdalin, and this mutant was grown by early farmers, at first unintentionally in the garbage heaps, and later intentionally in their orchards. Zohary and Hopf believe that almonds were one of the earliest domesticated fruit trees due to the ability of the grower to raise attractive almonds from seed. Thus, in spite of the fact that this plant does not lend itself to propagation from suckers or from cuttings, it could have been domesticated even before the introduction of grafting. Domesticated almonds appear in the Early Bronze Age (3000 to 2000 BC) such as the archaeological sites of Numeria (Jordan), or possibly a little earlier. Another well-known archaeological example of the almond is the fruit found in Tutankhamun's tomb in Egypt (c. 1325 BC), probably imported from the Levant. Of the European countries that the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh reported as cultivating almonds, Germany is the northernmost, though the domesticated form can be found as far north as Iceland.

    The pollination of California's almonds is the largest annual managed pollination event in the world, with close to one million hives (nearly half of all beehives in the USA) being trucked in February to the almond groves. Much of the pollination is managed by pollination brokers, who contract with migratory beekeepers from at least 49 states for the event. This business has been heavily impacted by colony collapse disorder, causing nationwide shortages of honey bees and increasing the price of insect pollination. To alleviate almond growers from the rising cost of insect pollination, researchers at the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) have developed a new line of self-pollinating almond trees. Self-pollinating almond trees, such as the Tuono almond tree, have been around for a while, but their harvest is not as desirable as the insect-pollinated California Nonpareil almond tree. The Nonpareil tree produces large, smooth almonds and offer 60 to 65 percent edible kernel per nut. The Tuono, on the other hand, has thicker, hairier shells and offers only 32 percent of edible kernel per nut. However, there are advantages to having a thick shell. The Tuono’s shell protects the nut from threatening pests such as the navel orangeworm. ARS researchers have managed to cross breed the pest-resistant Tuono tree with California's attractive Nonpareil tree, resulting in hybridized varieties of almond trees that are self-pollinated and maintain a high quality of nut. The new, self-pollinating almond tree hybrids possess quality skin color, flavor, and oil content, and reduce almond growers' dependency on insect pollination.

    SWEET & BITTER ALMONDS

    The seeds of Prunus dulcis var. dulcis are predominantly sweet, but some individual trees produce seeds that are somewhat more bitter. The fruits from Prunus dulcis var. amara are always bitter as are the kernels from other Prunus species like apricot, peach and cherry (to a lesser extent).

    The bitter almond is slightly broader and shorter than the sweet almond, and contains about 50 percent of the fixed oil that occurs in sweet almonds. It also contains the enzyme emulsin which, in the presence of water, acts on a soluble glucosides, amygdalin and prunasin, yielding glucose, cyanide and the essential oil of bitter almonds, which is nearly pure benzaldehyde. Bitter almonds may yield from 4 to 9 mg of hydrogen cyanide per almond. Extract of bitter almond was once used medicinally, but even in small doses, effects are severe, and in larger doses can be deadly; the cyanide must be removed before consumption. All commercially grown almonds are of the "sweet" variety.

    ALMOND CUISINE

    While the almond is often eaten on its own, raw or toasted, it is also a component of various dishes. Almonds are available in many forms, such as whole, sliced (flaked, slivered), and as flour. Almonds yield almond oil and can also be made into almond butter or almond milk. These products can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. Along with other nuts, almonds can be sprinkled over breakfasts and desserts, particularly muesli or ice cream based dishes. Almonds are used in marzipan, nougat, many pastries (including jesuites), cookies (including French macarons, macaroons), and cakes (including financiers), noghl and other sweets and desserts. They are also used to make almond butter, a spread similar to peanut butter, popular with peanut allergy sufferers and for its naturally sweeter taste. The young, developing fruit of the almond tree can be eaten whole ("green almonds") when they are still green and fleshy on the outside and the inner shell has not yet hardened. The fruit is somewhat sour, but is a popular snack in parts of the Middle East, eaten dipped in salt to balance the sour taste. Available only from mid April to mid June in the northern hemisphere, pickling or brining extends the fruit's shelf life. For dessert, almond cookie, Chinese almond biscuits, and Italian ricciarelli use almonds.

It is artistically shaped into festive motifs, figures and fruit shapes such as those shown above in a Paris shop.In Greece, ground blanched almonds are used as the base material in a great variety of desserts, usually called amygdalota. Because of their white color, most are traditionally considered "wedding sweets" and are served at wedding banquets. In addition, a soft drink known as soumada is made from almonds in various regions. In Iran, green almonds are dipped in sea salt and eaten as snacks on street markets; they are called Chaqale badam. Also sweet almonds are used to prepare a special food for babies, named "harire badam". In Iran almonds are added to some foods, cookies and desserts, or are used to decorate foods. People in Iran consume roasted nuts for special events, for example, during New Year parties.

    In Italy, the bitter almonds from apricots are the base for amaretti (almond macaroons), a common dessert. Traditionally, a low percentage of bitter almonds (10 to 20 percent) is added to the ingredients, which gives the cookies their bitter taste (commercially, apricot kernels are used as a substitute for bitter almonds). Almonds are also a common choice as the nuts to include in torrone. In Puglia and Sicily, "pasta di mandorle" (almond paste) is used to make small soft cakes, often decorated with jam, pistacchio or chocolate. In Sicily Almond milk is a popular refreshing beverage in summer.

    In Morocco, almonds in the form of sweet almond paste are the main ingredient in pastry fillings, and several other desserts. Fried blanched whole almonds are also used to decorate sweet tajines such as lamb with prunes. A drink made from almonds mixed with milk is served in important ceremonies such as weddings and can also be ordered in some cafes. Southwestern Berber regions of Essaouira and Souss are also known for "Amlou" a spread made of almond paste, argan oil, and honey. Almond paste is also mixed with toasted flour and among others, honey, olive oil or butter, anise, fennel, sesame seeds, and cinnamon to make "Sellou" (also called "Zamita" in Meknes or "Slilou" in Marrakech), a sweet snack known for its long shelf life and high nutritive value.

    In India, almonds are the base ingredients of pasanda-style curries. Badam halva is a sweet made from almonds with added coloring. Almond flakes are added to many sweets (such as sohan barfi), and are usually visible sticking to the outer surface. In Pakistan, almonds are the base ingredients of many food items. Meat dishes containing almonds include pasanda-style or Mughalai curries. Badam halva is a sweet made from almonds with added coloring. Almond flakes are added to many sweets (such as sohan barfi), and are usually visible sticking to the outer surface.

    Almonds form the base of various drinks which are supposed to have cooling properties. Almond sherbet or 'Sherbet-e-Badaam' in Urdu, is a popular summer drink. Almonds are also sold as a snack with added salt. Almonds can be processed into a milk substitute called almond milk; the nut's soft texture, mild flavor, and light coloring (when skinned) make for an efficient analog to dairy, and a soy-free choice for lactose intolerant people and vegans. Raw, blanched, and lightly toasted almonds work well for different production techniques, some of which are similar to that of soymilk and some of which use no heat, resulting in "raw milk".

    The 'Marcona' almond cultivar is recognizably different from other almonds, and is marketed by name. The kernel is short, round, relatively sweet and delicate in texture. It has been grown in Spain for a long time and its origin is unknown; the tree is very productive, the shell of the nut very hard. 'Marcona' almonds are traditionally served after being lightly fried in oil, and are used by Spanish chefs to prepare a dessert called turron.

    Almond flour is often used as a gluten-free alternative to wheat flour in cooking and baking. Historically, almond syrup was an emulsion of sweet and bitter almonds, usually made with barley syrup (orgeat syrup) or in a syrup of orange flower water and sugar. The Grocer's Encyclopedia (1911) notes that "Ten parts of sweet almonds are generally employed to three parts of bitter almonds"; however, due to the cyanide found in bitter almonds, modern syrups generally consist of only sweet almonds.

    ALMOND OIL

    Almonds are a rich source of oil, with values ranging between 36 to 60 percent of kernel dry mass. A study by Venkatchalam and Sathe suggests almonds contain approximately 44 percent oils, of which 62 percent is monounsaturated oleic acid (an omega-9 fatty acid), 29 percent is linoleic acid (a polyunsaturated omega-6 essential fatty acid), and 9 percent is saturated fatty acid. "Oleum Amygdalae", the fixed oil, is prepared from either sweet or bitter almonds and is a glyceryl oleate, with a slight odor and a nutty taste. It is almost insoluble in alcohol but readily soluble in chloroform or ether. Sweet almond oil is obtained from the dried kernel of sweet almonds. The oil is good for application to the skin as an emollient, and has been traditionally used by massage therapists to lubricate the skin during a massage session. Almond oil can also be used as a wood conditioner of certain woodwind instruments, such as the oboe and clarinet.

    AFLATOXINS

    Almonds, like other tree nuts, are susceptible to aflatoxin-producing molds. Aflatoxins are potent carcinogenic chemicals produced by molds such as Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus. The mold contamination may occur from soil, previously infested almonds, and almond pests such as navel orangeworm. High levels of mold growth typically appear as gray to black filament like growth. It is unsafe to eat mold infected tree nuts. Some countries have strict limits on allowable limits for aflatoxin contamination on almonds, and require adequate testing before the nuts can be marketed to their citizens. The European Union, for example, introduced a mandatory requirement since 2007 that all almond shipments to EU must be tested for aflatoxin. If aflatoxin does not meet the strict safety regulations, the entire consignment may be reprocessed to eliminate the aflatoxin or it must be destroyed. The almond industry not only tests and processes almonds to ensure infected almonds do not reach the market, the industry also takes steps to prevent sources that cause contamination. These steps include proper orchard management, winter sanitation, early harvest, proper storage among others.

    The USDA approved a proposal by the Almond Board of California to pasteurize almonds sold to the public, after tracing cases of salmonellosis to almonds. The almond pasteurization program became mandatory for California companies in 2007. Raw, untreated California almonds haven't been available in the U.S. since then. California almonds labeled "raw" must be steam-pasteurized or chemically treated with propylene oxide. This does not apply to imported almonds or almonds sold from the grower directly to the consumer in small quantities. The treatment also is not required for raw almonds sold for export outside of North America.

    The USDA-approved marketing order was challenged in court by organic farmers organized by the Cornucopia Institute, a Wisconsin-based farm policy research group. According to the Cornucopia Institute, this almond marketing order has imposed significant financial burdens on small-scale and organic growers and damaged domestic almond markets. A federal judge dismissed the lawsuit in the spring of 2009 on procedural grounds. In August 2009 farmers were appealing.

    ALMOND USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    MEDICINAL USES

    Potential health benefits, which have not been scientifically validated, include improved complexion and possibly a lower risk of cancer. Preliminary research associates consumption of almonds with elevating blood levels of high density lipoproteins and lowering low density lipoproteins. A preliminary trial showed that using them in the daily diet might lower several factors associated with heart disease, including cholesterol and blood lipids. Almonds contain polyphenols in their skins consisting in a combination of flavonols, flavan-3-ols, hydroxybenzoic acids and flavanones analogous to those of certain fruits and vegetables.

    As well as being a tasty addition to the diet, Almonds are also beneficial to the overall health of the body, some awesome treatments are:
    • Kidney stones.
    • Gallstones.
    • Constipation.
    • On the outside of the body, the oil is applied to dry skin as a moisturizer.
    • Used as a carrier oil in aromatherapy.
    • Bronchial diseases.
    • Tickling coughs.
    • Hoarsness.
    • Nephritic pains.
    • Prevent heart disease.

    Recent scientific studies suggest that Almond Oil may help prevent heart disease. Other studies have shown that Almond Oil is beneficial in reducing cholesterol levels as well. The kernel is thought to help alleviate coughs, flatulence, and heartburn. Almond butter is a rich protein substitute for peanut butter and can be well tolerated by diabetics. When Almonds are pounded in water, the oil unites with the fluid, a milky juice-Almond Milk - a soothing pleasant drink, which then can be used as a vehicle in a medicinal preparation in acute diseases. Pure Almond Oil cannot be used for it can turn rancid in a short amount of time, therefore, by mixing the oil it lasts much longer.

    Herbalist Culpeper (17th Century) writes, "The oil of both (bitter and sweet) cleanses the skin, it easeth (makes easy) pains in the chest, the temples being anointed therewith, and the oil with honey, powder of liquorice, oil of roses and white wax, makes a good ointment for dimness of sight."

    ALMOND OIL & AROMATHERAPY ESSENTIAL OILS

    Most essential oils are so strong that a little goes a long way. Essential oils should be diluted in carrier oils for use in massage. Avoid using mineral oils and baby oils for massage. Body care oils are usually used in conjunction with essential oils. Vegetable oils are produced from nuts, seeds, grains and beans. They are sometimes referred to as fixed oils because they are not as volatile (easily evaporate) as essential oils. Vegetable Oils make an excellent base in which to dilute essential oils for body care products. Quality vegetable oils are 100 percent pure and natural. Cosmetic oils (such as Lanolin or Shea Butter) also work well as carriers for essential oils and moisturizers.

    Sweet Almond oil is the first choice of many aromatherapists as it is good for all skin types. Especially good for eczema. It absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving it soft and non greasy. Excellent for making massage oils, or any recipe that calls for a vegetable carrier oil. Helps relieve itching, soreness, dryness and inflammation. Useful against burns and thread veins. Almond oil goes rancid quickly, so blends made with it must be used quickly.

    Almonds are one of the few alkaline nuts used in Ayurvedic medicine. They are used to relieve phlegm and coughs and to lubricate the intestines. Called Ba Dan Xing Ren in Chinese, Almond oil has an ancient history with the Chinese as a local anesthetic and muscle relaxer. Almond kernel provides one of the best facial scrubs mother nature can offer, as well as providing skin smoothing properties. Early American settlers claimed that intoxication could be slowed if you were to eat 5 or 6 bitter almonds before drinking an alcoholic beverage. Global production of Almonds is around 1.5 million tons, with a low of 1 million tons in 1995 and a peak of 1.85 million tons in 2002 according to Food and Agricultrure Organization (FAO).

    ALMOND NUTRITION

    The almond contains about 26 percent carbohydrates (12 percent dietary fiber, 6.3 percent sugars, 0.7 percent starch and the rest miscellaneous carbohydrates), and may therefore be made into flour for cakes and cookies (biscuits) for low-carbohydrate diets. A standard serving of almond flour, 1 cup, contains 20 grams of carbohydrates, of which 10 grams is dietary fiber, for a net of 10 grams of carbohydrate per cup. This makes almond flour very desirable for use in cake and bread recipes by people on carbohydrate-restricted diets.

    Almonds are a rich source of vitamin E, containing 26 mg per 100 g. About 20 percent of raw almond is high quality protein, a third of which are essential amino acids. An ounce of almonds contains 12 percent of necessary daily protein. They are also rich in dietary fiber, B vitamins, essential minerals and monounsaturated fat, one of the two fats which potentially may lower LDL cholesterol. Typical of nuts and seeds, almonds also contain phytosterols, associated with cholesterol-lowering properties.

    ALMOND SAFETY, CAUTIONS & INTERACTIONS

    SAFETY CONCERNS

    Although no specific mention has been seen for this species, it belongs to a genus where most, if not all members of this genus produce hydrogen cyanide, a poison that gives Almonds their characteristic flavor. This toxin is found mainly in the leaves and seed and is readily detected by its bitter taste. It is usually present in too small a quantity to do any harm, but any very bitter seed or fruit should not be eaten. In small quantities, hydrogen cyanide has been shown to stimulate respiration and improve digestion, it is also claimed to be of benefit in the treatment of cancer. You can take too much though and it can cause respiratory problems or worse. Please follow the directions on any product you are using. If you have any questions, discuss your concerns with your health care provider.

    Almonds may cause allergy or intolerance. Cross-reactivity is common with peach allergens (lipid transfer proteins) and tree nut allergens. Symptoms range from local symptoms (e.g., oral allergy syndrome, contact urticaria) to systemic symptoms including anaphylaxis (e.g., urticaria, angioedema, gastrointestinal and respiratory symptoms).

    Kalyx: Almond, Sweet Pure Carrier Oil, Aura Cacia, 4 oz.: K
    Sweet Almond oil is the first choice of many aromatherapists as it is good for all skin types. Especially good for eczema. It absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving it soft and non greasy. Excellent for making massage oils, or any recipe that calls for a vegetable carrier oil. Helps relieve itching, soreness, dryness and inflammation. Useful against burns and thread veins. Almond oil goes rancid quickly, so blends made with it must be used quickly.
    Kalyx: Almond Sweet Carrier & Cooking Oil, Refined, Starwest Botanicals, 4 fl. oz: C
    This expeller-pressed oil works great as a base for massage oils. It can also be as a carrier oil for essential oil fragrance blends. It is a high monounsaturated food grade oil. Sweet almond oil is somewhat bland in flavor without the taste of almonds. It has a high smoke point and is good for sauteing and stir-frying. As it imparts no flavor, it can be used for oiling a cake pan or mold. Like the nuts from which they're pressed, nut oils are very low in saturated fats. Almonds, hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, and pistachios are high in monounsaturated fats, which help to lower blood cholesterol. Almond and hazelnut oils are significant sources of vitamin E.
