I'm looking for almond flour. Is this something that the regular grocery stores carry here? I don't recall seeing it in the bio stores but then again I haven't specifically looked yet either.  Thanks in advance.

Hi FizzFizz


You can get Poudre d'amandes in the patisserie section of most supermarkets which is much the same thing - just not a finely ground and maybe not blanched almonds.


I would look in the bio section for farine d'amande.


Biocoop shops may well have it - there are two in Tarbes (65) and one (I think) in Lannemezan (65).


Failing which, Wikihow has this on making it at home:

bon chance!

other places you will find almond flour:


Look in the Dried Fruits/Nuts aisle, often larger bags and better value than Patisserie section


Also try Exotic/Foods of the World sections - common ingredient in North Africa


Also, the Asiatique stores (e.g. Paris Store in Toulouse).

Thank you for your replies. I've seen powdered almonds (ground almonds) in the shops, but that includes the skin which can get bitter when baked. That's an interesting link Giles about making your own, although I must admit that peeling almonds seems like a lot of work. Interesting also, about germinating the almonds before blanching them to make them more digestible.

Hi,


I usualy get "Poudre d'amond blanche" which is without skin at some supermakets such as Lidel, Reader price, Intermarche, etc... 


Check these places if there are around your area.


Cheers,


Anais
