Organic individual nuts.
Our almonds are raw, guaranteed!

We offer "Awakened Almonds" so you don't have to do the work!

FDA allows producers to label nuts "raw" when they are "flash-pasteurized" using any temperature from 145 to 280 degrees F. Unfortunately this destroys the digestive enzymes so soaking does absolutely no good. Enzymes are destroyed at any temperature above 105-115 degrees F.
