ITALIAN ALMONDS FILIPPO CEA

The Donna Francesca Italian almonds are a typical cultivar of the Apulian region. The almonds grows are cultivated on our family lands and are treated daily. The “Filippo Cea” Almond, so big and crispy, stands out for its elegant and buttery taste.

The story of Filippo Cea

We are in the early 1900s. The agronomist Filippo Cea loves to experiment. He grafts, selects, creates. This is how the cultivar almond is born: the most appreciated for its taste and nutritional characteristics. Thanks to the pedoclimatic conditions and the quality of the soil, this particular almond with its slender and robust soul integrates perfectly with the surrounding landscape, becoming, with its silhouette, rustic and elegant, the undisputed icon of Apulia. The traditional characteristic of the product is also recognized by MIPAAF, which has welcomed it on its national list of traditional agri-food products such as the Mandorla of Toritto.

The taste

With full flavor and balanced taste, almond Filippo Cea stands out for its intense flavor of casein with an elegant ending followed by a remarkable persistence in the mouth. The complexity of these tastes is due to the richness of the almonds in essential oils (59.57% of which nearly 74% is represented by oleic acid, followed by 18.6% inoleic acid and 5.5% palmitic acid).

The use

The use of the almond Filippo Cea has no boundaries in the kitchen: it can be eaten raw or as an ingredient in the most original chef recipes. From confectionery to bakery, from ice-cream to gastronomy, but also in cosmetics and beverage, the almond always expresses its character. Thanks to the versatility of this precious fruit, you can taste our almonds in various ways: with their hull, or peeled or in the “wild” version, by breaking the hull; or “processed”, meaning salted and roasted with extra virgin olive oil and sea salt of Apulia, and covered with crispy sugar (praline coated).

Benefits

Precious ally in balanced diets, almond Filippo Cea is a “super-aliment” thanks to its nutritional profile and nutraceutical values. The presence of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, selenium, zinc, and vitamin E and vitamin B help to reduce cholesterol levels and the risk of cardiovascular events; moreover, thanks to the high percentage of unsaturated fatty acids, it helps to increase the sense of fullness by limiting the consumption of other foods.
