Fun Facts

Where almonds come from:

We get our almonds from… California! Obviously. Almonds are grown and harvested across much of the state’s vast Central Valley, nested between the high Sierra Nevada and Coast Ranges. We are talking over 1.2 million acres of land for almonds.1 Impressive? Try this: California accounts for 80 percent of the world’s supply of this favorite tree nut.

So, this makes almonds seem like quite the American thing – much like pumpkins, apples, corn, peanuts, etc. Well, kind of… Amazingly, before 1492 there was not a single almond in America. They grew in the Mediterranean regions of the Middle East. From 100 percent of worldwide production there to a vast majority here: that’s quite a switch.

What they’re made of:

Tree nuts have caught on as dense nutritional alternatives to animal products. Almonds are rightfully leaders of the field. A single nut is composed of 50 percent fat (almost all unsaturated), 22 percent carbohydrate, and 21 percent protein. That’s a lot of good calories.

So, when you pour a glass of almond milk, all of this should be there, right? Should. Flip over the other guy’s carton. If you see 1g protein per serving – that’s a red flag. Something isn’t adding up. That product probably doesn’t contain too many almonds. Elmhurst, on the other hand, does not have to hide its label behind pictures and words. When there are 5 grams of protein in a glass of almond milk, there are more almonds. It’s that simple.

Fast facts:

  • That little thing you know as an almond? It’s actually a seed revealed by removing a hard wood-like shell. This, in turn, is initially contained within a gray-green fruit called the hull.
  • The word “almond” has origins in Greek, where it was known by a bunch of Greek letters spelling amygdala. The nut’s familiarity to the ancient world is also evidenced by several references in the Hebrew Bible.
  • California’s almond groves are home to the largest managed pollination event in the world. Each winter, almost half of America’s honeybee hives (nearly one million) are trucked to the Sunshine State to assist in preserving and growing yields.
  • Almond trees can grow up to 33 feet and reach full yield in 5-6 years.
