If you’re like me, you assumed that raw nuts were indeed raw. Well, when it comes to California almonds at least, we were wrong. These “raw” almonds are actually pasteurized at 165F, hardly raw. Check out this interesting article in The Salt for the complete low-down on so-called raw almonds.

  1. Interesting to know this fact. I, then, have never tasted a raw almond. I am assuming if the shelled almonds (the ones in the mixed shelled bin) are pasturized too?


  2. Who knew. This was an interesting read, thanks for sharing.
