Avola pizzuta shelled almond

The Pizzuta variety is the most precious. It is characterized by a flat, ovoid and very regular shape. These characteristics make the product perfect for confectionery.

Fascionello shelled almond

Althougth being of excellent quality, this variety is less precious than Pizzuta, and is widely for the production of sugared almonds.

Gemella shelled almond

{

This product comes from Avola (Pizzuta) and Fascionello almonds. It has, therefore, all the organoleptic properties of the latter. Due to its shape, the Gemella shelled almond does not fit with Avola sugared almonds. This is the reason why it is used more in pastry shops. The product is sold in packs of 0.250 / 0.5 / 1/10/25 kg in food cartons, in nylon bags or in food bags. The following varieties are available: Gemella peeled almond and Gemella shelled almond.

{

Rottame shelled almond

This is the waste resulting from the shelling and processing of Avola (Pizzuta) almond  and Fascionello. This variety has also all the organoleptic properties of the latter. Only for its shape it does not fit the sugar of Avola. Its use, therefore, is widespread in confectionery. The product is sold in packs of 0.250 / 0.5 / 1/10/25 kg in food cartons, nylon bags or food bags. The varieties available are: Rottame peeled almond and Rottame shelled almond.

{

Sliced almond

The sliced almond is obtained from a particular almond processing, able to obtain the most suitable shape for confectionery decorations. It too has the same organoleptic properties of almond. The product is sold in packs of 0.5 / 1/10 kg in food cartons or in food bags.

{

Almond with shell

This precious and very famous specialty is harvested from Sicilian almonds in a natural shell. Eating almonds in the shell is a real panacea for health. The seeds of the almond tree can be widely used. In addition to fresh consumption, they can be used to make flour, oil or milk. Moreover, they are the main ingredients of the confectionery.

Almond shells

The almond shell is an eco-friendly, non-polluting fuel with a high caloric value. Its calorific power is 4300 - 4500 Kcal / Kg. There are two types of almond shells: soft bark and hard bark. The last one has a higher yield than the other, which burns faster. In relation to the final use, the almond shells are available both ground and whole. The product is sold in packs of 10/20 kg in nylon bags.
