Almond Meal at a deep discount for you keto/gluten free/experimental types.
In terms of keto, this one has a pretty high carb count.
It's got 8.9g of dietary fibre, so the net is low enough. Woollies have two other brands, with lower carbs… Wondering how they get that with the only ingredients being almonds?
Our family needs to count carbs accurately, the difference in the carb counts between different brands of almonds, almond flours and meal varies greatly. I wrote to the almond board in Australia about this issue many years back for clarification on the issue, as there should not be a big difference. Their response was that it appeared that some companies (the ones with the higher carb count) have used American carb amounts that don’t have the fibre subtracted.
Wow, I wish I was on the almond board. I bet it's a sweet gig.
@kahn: I don't, I hear the majority of the board members are quite nutty.
@Lorindor: They have been known to be pretty salty though.
@AustriaBargain: I'm not surprising, considering the roasting they get in the media
In Australia, the requirement is to show the net amount, and it's over double the Woolies home brand.
Yeah, it's weird. Im fairly sure the processing methods won't change the count, and how can it vary that much? I've run out of woollies own, and can't see the fibre levels on the net. These are Aussie almonds, not sure where woollies own are from. As far as I know, almonds are type identical. Hmmmm.
Net carbs is a scam.
Maybe. It's really hard to find out what actually works. Otherwise, dump pysllium husks in everything, carbs fixed. What to do…. Still don't really know why this brand of almond Meal has double the carb count of the other kinds. It's not like they have other ingredients to play with.
I can safely say that all the different almond brands available in Australia (and we have tried almost all of them) affect BGLs the same and we treat them all as about 4.5g of carbs per 100g.
Sounds good to me!
Used to buy this for years on special. Now buy raw almonds when drop to $10/kg elsewhere & put in food processor as needed.
Oils in nuts oxidise after exposure to air. Just blend whole nuts in the food processor as needed instead of storing them ground
Downvoted for facts. Way to go reddit ozbargain.
That's why I process small amounts as needed. Fresh is best. Also make nut butters.
We use mainly just for protein balls. Yum!
Who is going to feed you now that your owner and the free press are dead?
Apparently, one of his family members. Embassy cat has not been at the embassy for quite a while now, after the Equidorians threatened to take it to the pound.
Yeah, I buy this particular brand in bulk when it goes on special as I make heaps of macarons. This particular brand I like the quality of so try to stick to it.
This stuff's good for thickening curries.
Konjac powder is way better, though.
