What the difference between almond flour and almond meal?
Almond flour, almond meal and ground almonds are all similar products that are simply finely ground almonds. The difference is minor: almond flour is usually made from blanched almonds so the color is light and the texture is fine. Almond meal is often made from whole almonds so you might notice darker pieces of almond skins within the almond meal. The texture is more coarse.
