What Raw Should Mean to You

In the raw food world, raw means food that has not been pasteurized, non-irradiated, no GMOs and not heated over 118°. Heating foods over 118° (more than a hot sunny day) starts to kill the enzymes and nutrients in your food.

Raw foods help nourish the body. Cooking foods cause a loss of nutrients. Why rob yourself of those enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals when you retain all their health properties by eating them raw. You don’t need to sacrifice taste either! You’ll find our almonds taste so much better. Watch the video below and see what our taste testers have to say. 

Are Your Almonds ‘truly’ Raw?

Did you know that your almonds are most likely not ‘truly’ raw! Why? Because California supplies 80% of the almonds globally. California almonds are the only nut (it’s really a seed!) that MUST be — by law — pasteurized. They are either heat-pasteurized (steamed) or fumigated with a chemical called propylene oxide or PPO. Yes, that’s right! Your almonds may be coated with a jet engine fuel additive that was used for racing cars and motorcycles. 

Our certified organic Valencia almonds from Spain are ‘truly’ raw. Unpasteurized and non-irradiated. Wilma (and her supplier!) refrigerate almonds to keep them fresh and we suggest you do the same.

Nuts and seeds are almost always heated through roasting, shelling or pasteurization. Not ours!
