They are particular about sorting nuts.
They established strict standards more strict than standards of U.S.D.A. in sorting nuts.

I search how strict the standard of U.S.D.A. is.
* US Fancy : The highest grade, typically appropriate for products where the visual appeal of the almond is critical to the application.
* US Extra No.1 : Similar to US Fancy, ideals for food applications where the appearance of the almond is very important.
* US No.1 : Typically used for whole almond applications or for further processing such as blanching and roasting.
* US Select Sheller Run : Mid quality grade.
* US Standard Sheller Run : Good grade for further processing such as blanching dicing grinding, or paste, particularly where a higher level of split and broken kernels is not a concern.

It looks the standard is especially particular about shape.

Let’s taste one.
