LIVELITALY becomes ambassador of the almond from Puglia region, one of the many treasures of Italian agriculture.
We are at the beginning of 1900. The agronomist Filippo Cea loves experimenting. Engage, select, create. Thus born the almond cultivar, most appreciated for its taste and nutritional characteristics.
Thanks to the pedoclimatic conditions and the soil quality, this particular almond with a slender but robust soul, perfectly integrates with the surrounding landscape, becoming with its silhouette, rustic and elegant, the undisputed icon of Puglia.
The traditional nature of the product is also recognized by MIPAAF, which has accepted it on its national list of traditional agri-food products such as Toritto Almond.
Precious ally in balanced diets, almond Filippo Cea is a “superaliment” thanks to its nutritional profile and nutraceutical values. The presence of minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, selenium, zinc, and of vitamin E and vitamin B, contribute to reduce the level of cholesterol and the risk of cardiovascular events; moreover, thanks to the high percentage of unsaturated fatty acids, it contributes to increase the sense of satiety by limiting the consumption of other foods.
LIVELITALY chooses for its customers the best of the typical productions of the Italian food and wine scene. Treasures to savor, stories to experience, flavors to try.
