Our certified organic raw almonds are imported from Spain, where pasteurizing is not a requirement. Our unpasteurized almonds are truly raw and are never treated by irradiation, high heat, steam or chemically sterilized as required for all domestically grown almonds, even those labeled as "raw". Our Unpasteurized Almonds have their fats and enzymes intact and supply vitamin E, magnesium and mono and polyunsaturated fats. Use them to make delicious almond milk, grain-free flours or eat them by the handful for a satiating snack. Our almonds are packed with possibilities!
