Almond meal is different from almond flour in the sense that almonds still have their skin on, which gives a coarse & colored consistency to the mix (vs. fine and white for the almond flour). They both theoretically have the same nutritious content, but almond meal offers slightly more fiber and mineral as almonds still had their skin on. The skin also provides almond meal with a higher antioxidant content, namely flavonoids, phenolic acids, and tannins. Research also suggests that the plant compounds in almond skin may have some antibacterial and antiviral activities and even help protect the oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol, thus helping lower your heart disease risk!
