Nothing tastes better than a cookie with a hint of almond’s nutty flavour that reminds you of Easter and Christmas. Almond paste is the key answer to that taste, which is mainly used as a baking ingredient in many different cultures for a filling or to be moulded into creative shapes as a cake decoration.

Natural Moreish offers 100% natural Almond paste with no additives or preservatives. Keep this delicious and beneficial paste in an air-tight container in a dark and cool place. Storing it in the refrigerator may help you keep it fresh for a longer period.

General Information

Almond paste is an ingredient for baking that is used in cookies, cakes, tarts and other desserts. It’s made with almonds, sugar, a binding or thickening agent like corn syrup or glucose, and a natural flavouring agent like almond extract. Preservatives are sometimes used in commercially processed almond paste to extend its shelf life. Almond paste is gluten-free by itself.

Almond paste tastes just like almonds with a soft texture similar to a spread but it is not ready to use right out of the bag. Almond paste is often confused with Marzipan, they are very similar but the main difference between them is the sweetness and the amount of sugar and almonds in them. Almond paste contains less sugar and more ground almonds, on the other hand, Marzipan has fewer almonds and more sugar.

Health Benefits

Almond paste is a nutritive, powerful superfood for both the body and mind, as well as a beneficial food remedy for common diseases.

There are numerous health benefits of Almond paste that we can enjoy if we begin using it. It has the same health benefits as the Almond itself:

  1. It can improve your Cholesterol

High levels of low-density cholesterol lipoprotein will increase the risk of heart disease. It has been shown that the consumption of certain forms of almond fats (e.g., polyunsaturated fats) reduces LDL-C and can reduce the risk of cardiac disease.

  1. It Lowers Your Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is one of the leading cardiovascular risk factors. It’s also one of the most controllable risks. Blood pressure can be controlled by exercise, diet, and stress management. Although losing weight alone can help lower blood pressure, some foods have natural blood pressure-lowering properties.

Almonds have been shown to reduce systolic blood pressure, most likely by improving the body’s capacity to dilate blood vessels. They have been shown to reduce systolic blood pressure in many studies.

  1. Almond Paste is high in Vitamins and Minerals

Almond paste is a great source of many fat-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin E, which acts as a wonderful antioxidant. It is also full of magnesium, which can help you reduce your insulin resistance and controls the effects of diabetes.

  1. Almond Paste is rich in Fibre

Fibre is very important for the microbiome, functional digestive system, feeling full, and overall health. Almond paste contains a decent amount of fibre which may help you improve your digestive system, reduce your appetite and shed some extra weight.

Best Ways to Use Almond Paste

Almond paste is used as a filling for Danish pastries and bear paws, and many countries have their own almond paste specialities, especially for Easter and Christmas baking. Such as:

  • Germany: The German equivalent of almond paste is used in a variety of Christmas cookies as well as “Stollen”, the famous yeasted holiday bread.
  • Italy: Almond paste (pasta di mandorle) is used to make pignoli, chewy cookies with pine nuts on top, in Italy.
  • France: Almond paste (pâte d’amande) is used in a variety of forms in France, including almond-filled croissants. Another seasonal speciality made with almond paste is galette des rois, or king cake, which is made every year for Epiphany in January.

Serving and Portion Size

Although almond paste has a lot of health benefits, excessive consumption of it can lead to overeating and can have some side effects on your health and weight. Just try to use it in moderation and enjoy its vast advantages. It also can cause some allergic reactions for people with nut allergies.

Storage

To keep the almond paste from drying out, it should be tightly wrapped once opened and be stored in an airtight container in a cool dry place and away from direct sunlight. The best option would be to store it in the fridge or freezer.
