The almond tree is a plant native to Asian areas including Russia, China and Japan, and was imported to Italy, to Sicily precisely, thanks to the Phoenicians’ trade in the Mediterranean.
Almonds are a rich source of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus and are therefore an excellent food choice to ensure the well-being of bones, fortifying them and thus preventing osteoporosis. Almonds are rich in fiber, which if eaten properly can help fight diarrhea and constipation.
Almonds are best stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources. Therefore, storing them too close to the stovetop or on a windowsill is not recommended.
The ideal temperature is around 15°-20° C. Also, use the right containers, preferring airtight glass ones that will keep the product fresh for several months. What you must avoid, however, are food bags, which can compromise the taste and crunchiness of the almonds.
