Sokol Custom Food Ingredients offers an almond paste brimming with a rich and creamy almond flavor. It is ideally suited to help bakers and food manufacturers add flavor and enhance the sweetness of a broad range of baked goods.
“Many almond paste products are sourced and produced overseas, leading to rising costs and supply chain concerns,” says Shannon Pimmel, Marketing Manager, Sokol. “Our almond paste is 100% American-made, creating a more dependable supply chain, lowering freight costs and ensuring top quality to all customers. We can also accommodate any need for kosher, halal, gluten-free, organic and non-GMO manufacturing.”

● 1-gal. pails
● 6 x 7 lb. chubs

“Almond paste is a baking staple used in many well-loved baked goods recipes such as bear claws where its rich, ‘almondy’ sweetness can elevate a recipe,” adds Pimmel. “Our almond paste is well-suited for food manufacturers for categories such as baked goods for food service, retail, gluten-free and more. Almond paste has an easy-to-work-with consistency that is perfect for blending, rolling or molding. At Sokol, we use top-quality whole-blanched almonds in our paste to provide a deeper and denser taste to any recipe or application. Sokol’s almond paste is the same paste under our Solo retail brand and is known as America’s #1 choice for its delicious and rich flavor.”
