Tree almonds are divided into two groups: bitter almonds and sweet almonds. Bitter almonds are not edible, but like sweet almonds, they are rich in minerals, so they are used in various industries. Sweet almonds are: Mamra, Moheb (Paper-Shell Almonds), & Sangi.
Sangi almond is one of the most common types of tree almonds that are widely cultivated in Iran. This almond has a high resistance to aridity, so it is also cultivated in rainfed. Almond has an oval shape with a pointed tip and the lower part is curved. The skin of this almond is very thick and the kernel is very fat. The percentage of fat in Sangi almonds is higher than other tree almonds that is used to prepare almond oil.
Mamra almond is one of the best tree almonds that has a thick shell, like the Sangi almond. Mamra almond kernel is larger and has a light color. This almond originates from Iran and is mainly cultivated in Chaharmahal and Bakhtiari province. Mamra almonds have fatty and brittle kernels. India is one of the major buyers of Mamra almonds from Iran.
Paper-shell almond is one of the most popular and sought-after types of Iranian almonds. This almond, as its name suggests, has a very thin shell and can be easily broken with finger pressure. The percentage of kernels of this almond is more than stone almonds and midwifery. Paper-shell almonds are a luxury type of almonds that have a high export rate.
Each type of almond is sold as a kernel or with shell, raw or salty, and in different quality grades.
Iranian almonds Vs American almonds
American almonds are mostly large, uniform in shape, with a smooth, light-colored appearance, and have no bitterness at all. Iranian almonds are smaller, thinner, and darker than foreign almonds, and they are a little bit bitter in their taste; and of course tastier.
Another important point is about the difference in the nutritional value of Iranian and American almonds. Among Iranian almonds, Mamra almonds contain 50% oil, while natural American almonds contain only 25-30% oil. Almond oil is the main unit of nutritional storage in almonds. Qualitatively, Mamra almond kernels are much more nutritious than other types of almonds.
The next point is that Mamra almond is grown organically without the use of chemicals. But American almonds undergo chemical processing and are refined with very high heat. Intense heat processing reduces the healthy oil content of almonds. American almonds have a sweeter taste due to chemical processing. These almonds are better to use for cooking and garnishing, but Mamra almonds are more suitable for direct consumption.
