Whole Blanched Almonds Vs. Unblanched: What's the Difference?
Unblanched is the natural condition of almond seeds as they are covered with a thin skin that has nutritional value and a richer slightly bitter taste. "Blanched" are peeled almonds which are made by removing this skin through exposing the nut to hot and then cold temperatures.
It is true that blanching requires an additional processing step, but it has very little effect on the actual nutritional value of the nut. As such there is not much difference between unblanched and blanched almonds, aside from taste. The blanched variety is milder and creamier. It is also better to use in recipes because the skins can detach during the cooking process and affect both the texture and the flavor of the dish.
