Almond meal VS Almond Flour

Almond meal and almond flour are both derived from almonds, but have a key difference- the skins!

The former comprises finely ground almonds with their skins intact, whereas almond flour has the skins removed. It’s also commonly referred to as blanched almond flour. Compared to almond meal, almond flour has a lighter color and finer texture and is far more superior to use in baked goods.
