Some main types of almonds 

Spanish peanuts contain several nutrients that help you have a healthy heart. Raw or roasted, these cholesterol-free peanuts contain fat, but 80% of that fat is unsaturated fats, which means they lower the cholesterol. 

Moreover, Spanish almonds are a great source of vitamin E, giving you 70% of the recommended daily allowance. By eating them, you’re also getting zinc, magnesium, potassium, iron and fiber and more calcium than any other nut. This makes them a great snack idea for vegetarians!

A portion of Marcona almonds meets the 8% of your daily value of iron and calcium, and 5% of your daily value of iron. This will keep your bones healthy and strong. Besides, iron is necessary for transporting oxygen throughout your body. 

Valencia almonds are known the for being more tender, sweet, and delicate than regular. They have a nice buttery flavor that is due to their high oil and moisture content. They have the same excellent health benefits as all almonds, apart from cholesterol-lowering monounsaturated fats. They are also an equally rich source of protein, antioxidants, iron, and calcium.

On top of all that, a serving of regular almonds meets 50% of your daily value of vitamin E, which is an important antioxidant that protects your cells from damage.

What an almond factory can do

Normally, an almond factory contains machines that completely cover all stages of processing the almonds. These processes should be: hulling, shelling and cracking, sorting, cleaning and sizing, peeling, different types of cutting, milling, drying, cooling and roasting. Later on, it should take care of the conveying and storage part, weighing, the packing and traceability, the quality control, the optical sorting lines, the automation, the software development and more…
