Roasting almonds changes the colour and flavour profile of the almonds, resulting in a darker colour and crunchy texture. Almonds can be roasted either light, medium or dark, dependent on your manufacturing needs. The flavour intensity and composition differ dependent on roasting conditions. Once the almonds have been harvested, dried out and shelled, they are then roasted using hot air, during this roasting the moisture evaporates from the almonds resulting in a crunchier texture. During the process a reaction also takes place between the sugars and amino acids which browns the almond, and changes the flavour. The darker roast you want, the longer the almond is roasted for.
Blanching is a process to remove the skin from an almond. The almonds are then treated with hot water to soften the skin and then passed through a series of rubber rollers where the soffened skins are removed, leaving just the white nut inside
