Nuts and Seeds

63 Other Nut Products

In the United States, walnut, pistachio, and pecan pastes are marketed. Pastes with a combination of nuts, including coconut and even sesame seeds, along with sugar are also available.

Many companies market macaroon paste under various patented names. Macaroon paste is similar in composition to almond paste, but whereas almond paste is bound with water, macaroon paste contains egg whites.

Many nut crunches can be bought for use as an ingredient, or for masking and decorating cakes and pastries. Again, they can be a combination of almonds, coconut, cashew nuts, peanuts, sugar, and flavours.
