Get your fill of benefits: almonds in shell and their secrets

With their delicate and sweet flavor, almonds are among the most used fruits in Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. In fact, they lend themselves to enriching many recipes, both sweet and savory, both traditional and innovative. To name just a few of the most famous, we remember the sbrisolona from Mantua, the Trapani-style pesto and the Tuscan cantucci.

So what about the benefits of almonds? On a nutritional level they are concentrates of health, even in their "skin". In fact, they abound in proteins, vitamins B and E, magnesium, phosphorus and calcium. These elements make them excellent antioxidants as well as allies for the well-being of eyes, skin, bones and muscles. Furthermore, among the lipids contained in almonds we find oleic acid and Omega 6, essential for the proper functioning of the cardiovascular system. Finally, the high quantity of fiber helps maintain the balance of the intestinal bacterial flora.

Why choose shelled almonds?

We have seen the many health benefits of almonds . Let's now move on to a more pragmatic topic: what do we do with the shells? Many consume only the sweet and oily fruit of the almond tree, throwing away the woody shell that protects it. However, there are several alternative uses that can be made of it. Let's see the most interesting ones:

  • Gardening: dried fruit shells are excellent allies for those with a green thumb. In fact, they can be used for mulching: add them, together with leaves and pieces of bark, to the surface of the soil and you will preserve its humidity and temperature. Among the benefits of shelled almonds, we remember that the woody part can be mixed with the soil to aerate it and prevent the roots from rotting. Alternatively, you can use the shells to make rich, nutritious compost.
  • Stove and fireplace: shredded almond shells are a valid alternative to pellets, as a biofuel. They burn faster, but have the advantage of being cheaper and absorbing less moisture, which makes them easier to store.
  • Diet: no, we are not advising you to eat dried fruit shells! But know that among their many benefits, almonds , walnuts and other nuts are precious allies for your figure. In fact, the work required to shell them helps you prolong your snack, making you feel full more quickly and therefore leading you to consume less.
