Blue Diamond increases almond flour production to meet record demand
With demand for almond flour at an “all time high,” Blue Diamond Growers is increasing its production capacity for the on-trend ingredient via a new processing line at its Salida (CA) manufacturing complex.

The new line features a custom-designed enclosed conveyance system that transfers almonds from one process to another, segregating raw almonds from pasteurized forms.

The finely ground gluten-free flour – which is gaining traction in a range of products​, from Paleo-themed baking mixes to soups, sauces, cookies, crackers, breads and cakes – has a smooth mouthfeel and a light buttery taste, and each quarter-cup serving contains 6g protein and 3.5g fiber.

Blue Diamond currently offers three options​ – fine blanched, extra fine blanched, and extra fine natural, with the first two made from blanched almonds (with the skin removed), and the latter from almonds with their skins remaining.
