  • The Health Benefits of Almonds
    Almonds are a member of the stone fruit family, which also includes peaches, plums and nectarines. While largely a product of California today, almonds originated millions of years ago from central and southwest Asia.

Another quarter of the almonds purchased are used for in-home consumption or for baking purposes, and the last quarter are used by food service outlets such as restaurants or bakeries.
