One of the key ingredients: Almond Flour
When it comes to macarons, almond flour is one of the key ingredients. This gluten-free finely ground flour is made from bleached almonds and suitable for macaron recipes. In place of almond flour, almond meals are used to make some macarons. Although those two products can be used interchangeably, almond meals tend to have coarser texture since they are often made from whole almonds. With its coarse consistency, you may find the difference in taste and texture of macarons.
