Almond Processing Equipment
From being grown in the field to roasting and slicing, the manufacture and processing of almonds is a multi-tiered operation. After removing their hull, also known as almond hulling, you can process almonds in various ways to achieve the requested consistency. Whether you chop the almond, finely mill them or turn them into almond milk, they require special care and equipment for nut processing.

Almond processing equipment for all shapes and sizes
Almonds are rich in fiber, protein, magnesium, and vitamin E, making them a quick and healthy snack. To make them, you can use various chopping, slicing, shelling, and grating equipment.
To create lush chocolates and pralines, for instance, opt for smaller chunks of almond nuts. You can adjust your almond processing equipment for chopping and slicing to produce the preferred size of the almond. After that, add the chopped nuts to trail mixes, chocolates, cakes, and other food products.
Almond equipment for making milk and flour
To produce almond milk and flour, manufacturers use almonds that do not achieve specific aesthetic requirements. They collect these as the material is separated in the sorters.
You make almond flour by grating almond nuts with an industrial nut grater. The flour is then sifted to ensure its powdery texture. This is the main ingredient in French macarons, first concocted in Venetian monasteries and brought to the French court by Catherine de Medici.
Integrate hullers in the almond processing line to separate contaminants
There are two methods of almond milk manufacturing, and you should consider both when deciding on processing equipment and technology. The ‘dry’ method includes adding water to grated almonds. The ‘wet’ method process consists of blending soaked almonds with water.
Almond shelling also occurs in this step to avoid unwanted material in the milk. Manufacturers often pasteurize the milk with tunnel pasteurizers to eradicate pathogens and prolong its shelf-life. Automation equipment makes the process faster. This leads to a safer and higher quality product.
Almond nuts retain plant-based milk status
Almond milk has had its fair share of controversy. In an attempt to ban the use of the word ‘milk’ in connection to kinds of milk, part of the dairy industry submitted Amendment 171 to the European Parliament.
Lawmakers rejected it in 2021, so almond milk is still considered milk in the EU.
Almond milk is not just for making your favorite latte
Rich in vitamins E, B2, and B3, almond milk has been a valued ingredient in cosmetic products for decades. It also has moisturizing and skin-healing properties, lightening dark spots and healing acne scars. You can use almond milk in soaps, shampoos, body lotions, and the like.
To further process almond milk, you need specialized mixing equipment to reduce and evenly distribute almond milk particles into a liquid, emulsion, or cream. Add the nut milk into laboratory-grade mixers with the rest of the ingredients and watch as they create the desired texture of soaps, lotions, shampoos, and creams.
