AFTER AN ALMOND butter product
enjoyed strong warehouse sales, Costco
food buyers decided to create a Kirkland
Signature™ version but with a richer flavour profile and higher quality. In
March ;;;;, UK members were introduced to Kirkland Signature Almond
Butter. Since then it has become a member favourite.
Kirkland Signature Almond Butter
has a single ingredient: dry-roasted
almonds. It contains no preservatives
or additives. The almonds are steam-pasteurised (not chemically pasteurised) and then dry-roasted before being
ground into butter.
“Roasting the almonds before
grinding them into butter brings out
the flavour: the longer you roast them,
the more flavour you can get,” says Rob
Lerner, Costco UK foods buyer. “The
trick is to roast them to perfection and
not to overcook them.”
The almond butter is made in a way
that preserves the inherent nutritional
value of the almonds. Almonds are high
in monounsaturated fats (the same
kind found in olive oil and avocados),
which studies have indicated might
help reduce the risk of heart disease
and potentially lower cholesterol. Each
;;-millilitre (;-tablespoon) serving
has ; grams of protein and ; grams of
fibre. And there is no sodium in this
product. Just be sure to store it in the
fridge after you open it, and give it a
good stir before you spread it, as the
natural oils will separate.
This creamy butter with exquisite
almond taste is delicious on its own—all
you need to enjoy it are the jar and a
spoon—but it’s also wonderful with
sliced bananas on toast, as a peanut
butter replacement, in savoury sauces
and even in baked goods. Almond butter chocolate chip cookies, anyone?
