Apricot Kernel Oil
Apricot kernel oil is one of the lesser known oils that have provide many health benefits, including benefits for better skin and respiratory health.
Much like our approach towards our Black Sesame, throughout the entire production process of our Almond Powders, each step is designed and optimized to preserver and extract the valuable oils.
Bringing back the authentic taste
100% Pure Chinese Almond Powder
Traditional recipes for making Chinese almond tea call for blending soaked almonds and squeezing out the juice, discarding the solids. Instead, our Almond Powders are made by delicately grinding the almonds (with skin removed) under special conditions to maximize extraction and retention of the natural oils within the particles. Numerous experiments were done before we settled on just the right mesh size (powder particle size), to allow for an enhanced natural almond taste profile and melt-in-your-mouth texture.
It’s also worth mentioning that many other common brands on the market use almonds that have had their oils removed, which give them a bland taste. Others have added a certain artificial flavour, which has unfortunately become such a characteristic flavour that many younger consumers have mistaken that flavour as Chinese Almond flavour, acquiring a somewhat unjust distaste. With our Almond Powders, we hope to bring back the real taste that would have met the approval of the most discerning Chinese imperial empress.
