Spotlight on Weird and Wonderful Almond Coproduct Research

Did you know almond trees grow four products? In addition to the kernel that we eat, almond coproducts include the almond hull, which is used to feed livestock, and the shells, which are used as livestock bedding. Even the trees are recycled at the end of their productive lives to create alternative energy or to improve soil quality.

Farmers have always taken responsibility for these coproducts, and now the California almond community is focusing research on additional and optimal uses for these coproducts, embracing a zero-waste approach that addresses critical needs across multiple industries.
