The hulls are high in both protein and fiber. Made into a shake they have the aroma and a light flavor of almonds. But be warned, while the hulls (analogous to the flesh of peaches) might make for great cattle food. That shake will result in three days of explosive diarrhea. So unless you are hopelessly constipated, leave the hulls for our bovine friends.

(Almond wood makes fantastic fuel for barbecue smokers!)

Great but those trees use SO much water in a state where there is a drought every year. Good thinking.

Almond trees grow more than the nutritious snack we love! They actually provide four valuable products – the kernel we love to eat, the hulls and shells surrounding the nut and the tree itself! And almond farmers have been putting these co-products to good use. Now, we’re working with U.S. Department of Agriculture researchers to explore even more innovative ways to recycle.

ATTN:
More people should know how amazing recycling almonds are for the environment. ...

Except that a single almond requires more water to grow than a half acre of wheat. In a state that has already destroyed Colorado from water theft, anhililated delicate ecosystems from damming up rivers, and polluted waterways from runoff just so some Hipsters can come to SFO and talk about how "beautiful" it is. California is the perfect example of man made ecological disaster.

Um please let’s not do this and send everyone into anaphylaxis because almonds would then be in everything...

Jessica Stepp oh the valley. How I miss you. Lol. I remember as a kid in the summers I would ride my bike to all the farms and eat fruit. Peaches,strawberry, blueberries, and nuts to. Almonds,walnuts. What I didn’t realize as a kid was that I was stealing. 😔

probably not to mention about a 50 to 80% loss and energy in what you're doing, but that's the California way of thinking, we can spend $200 to make $100 in return

Not to mention the fact that watering almond orchards uses a large percentage of the water supply in california because we are one of the top producers of almonds in the country/world.

Almonds are also huge water consumers...🙄
"...fuels more sustainable," that is true when they say 'more' sustainable but biofuels aren't sustainable when compared to renewables; don't mean to attack your industry but just clearing up the lingo for peeps.

don't be fooled, we use every part of this by product the shells are ground down to use for hand cleaner in industry!

What about all the pesticides constantly being sprayed on the almond trees? There are allergies and cancer galore in the central valley. My parents have to leave seasonally. Do we really need to spread that around?

They feed a lot of it to cows. The husks of the almonds is really good protein for them

So I hope we're doing this and not just talking about it

Don't forget milking them little buggers. Supply milk to folks who can't afford a cow. Or live in California

Waste of water.

California got a long ways of good Todo lol

Too bitter?
