Blue Diamond wants you to “get your good going”. Their packages have a very easy to spot blue diamond on the packaging. Blue Diamond is probably best known for its traditional flavored almonds. Choose from Smokehouse Almonds, Whole Natural Almonds, Roasted Natural Almonds, Honey Roasted Almonds, or their new Low Sodium Lightly Salted Almonds. Their line of Bold Flavors include varieties like Honey Dijon, Carolina Barbeque, Wasabi and Soy Sauce, Lime ‘n Chili, Salt ‘n Vinegar, Habanero BBQ, and more. Their Oven Roasted Almonds are a great snack for those who are watching their weight. New flavors include: Oven Roasted Dark Chocolate Almonds, Oven Roasted Butter Toffee Almonds and Oven Roasted Mint Dark Chocolate. There are four other flavors to choose from. You can also get Blue Diamond almonds in 100 calorie packs. Almond Breeze is their line of non-dairy beverages that are made from almonds. A few are unsweetened. Their Baked Nut Chips have less saturated fat than potato chips and are processed in a facility that is certified by the Gluten Free Certification Organization. They also make a line of Almond Nut Thins, which are gluten free crackers. You can buy Blue Diamond products through their website. They sell in bulk quantities. Prices range from about $20.00 to a little over $30.00 for a pack of products.
According to LiveStrong, almonds have healthy fats and omega-3, which could reduce your risk of developing heart disease. They are high in lean protein. They are also high in fiber, which helps with your digestion. Foods that are gluten free do not contain wheat or other ingredients that have gluten in them. This makes them safer for people who have celiac disease or a gluten allergy or intolerance to consume. Non-dairy beverages, like Almond Breeze, are great for people who have a lactose intolerance, because they do not contain milk and are lactose free. The low calorie, or 100 calorie packs, make life easier for people who are trying to lose weight. Blue Diamond Growers has its headquarters in Sacramento, California. You can learn more about staying healthy, celiac disease, and lactose intolerance from the Blue Diamond website.
