Organic Almonds (Raw, No Shell)
Unpasteurized, Raw, Organic Almonds
Perfectly delicious, loaded with nutrition and significant in size, these almonds are among our best selling products. Our raw organic almonds are just that--truly raw and unpasteurized --and certified organic. Great raw nuts like these can be difficult to get in the United States, as California almonds marketed as "raw" are often steam-pasteurized, but our non-pasteurized almonds are imported from Spain.
The robust flavor of our organic almonds makes them a superior snack all by themselves, and they're incredible in homemade trail mix or sprinkled over desserts. You can even blend them in a food processor or coffee grinder to make your own fresh, raw almond flour.
Organic Raw Almond Nutrition
1) Lower Cholesterol: Almonds boast the highest concentration of monounsaturated fat among commonly eaten nuts. The cholesterol-lowering effect of this heart-healthy fat has been demonstrated in numerous studies. A 2005 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that consuming almonds as part of a heart-healthy diet can lower LDL "bad" cholesterol levels just as effectively as first generation statin drugs.
2) Protective Antioxidants: Almonds are one of the richest food sources of alpha-tocopherol, the form of vitamin E that is most easily absorbed by the body. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that supports the immune system, helps our bodies create red blood cells, and protects cells against the damaging effects of free radicals. According to research in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, eating almonds can help meet the Recommended Dietary Allowance of 15 mg/day alpha-tocopherol and improve red blood cell concentration.
3) Tons of Nutrients: Almonds are abundant in even more nutty nutrients, like protein, dietary fiber, magnesium, calcium, and potassium. A one-ounce serving of almonds contains 12% of the Daily Value (DV) of protein, nearly 15% DV of dietary fiber, 20% DV of magnesium, 7% DV of calcium, and 5% DV of potassium.
4) Regulate Blood Sugar Levels: Almonds are a rich source of soluble fiber, which helps the body absorb nutrients from food and slows the uptake of cholesterol in the blood. A 2007 study published in the journal Metabolism found that eating almonds alongside white bread regulated spikes in blood sugar that normally occur with eating white bread alone. Almond consumption also appeared to lower the glycemic index of the meal.
Amazingly Filling Organic Raw Nuts
Almonds' monounsaturated fat can not only lower LDL or "bad" cholesterol, it can keep you full-- really full--for a really long time. For this reason, almonds are promoted more frequently than other organic raw nuts as a powerful weight loss food. When it comes to a great tasting, nutrient-rich snack that makes it easier to avoid overeating, organic almonds have few rivals.
These non pasteurized almonds are a unique variety from Spain. This particular variety will always have some almonds that are bitter. These are not dangerous to eat, but they may have a slightly unpleasant taste to some. Unfortunately, there is no way to avoid this.

“well, i have to say i suspected many of the reviews on nuts.com to be manufactured b/c they're so universally glowing, but now i'm writing one just like all the others... i'm really very happy with my purchase. the organic raw almonds are beautiful: slightly softer than the "raw" (pasteurized) almonds i'm used to & very delicate with an almost floral flavor. The raw organic macadamias, & european hazelnuts are equally fresh & delicious—you can tell there's not a stale or rancid molecule in them.... and i love the bright orange bags. thanks!!”

“I'm on my second 5lb. bag of these Raw Organic Almonds. They are pricey, but I pay for quality. You guys also ship AMAZINGLY fast. I ordered something Friday afternoon and got it Saturday morning (lol).
Also, I appreciate the treats/samples that they send (ie. buckwheat) along with every order, as well as the humorous box printing. It's little stuff like this that separate Nuts.com from others. Stay in business, please! :-)”

“My order arrived quickly and heeding the advice on the box, I opened it right away. I purchased some organic raw almonds and I can honestly say these were the freshest nuts I ever had...very tasty! Much better than the bulk bins at the natural food store. Also, thanks for the Quinoa sample too! Looking forward to trying some more of your products.”

“The raw almonds were literally the freshest I've ever eaten. They were soft! They had the flavor of almond extract! They were a completely different animal from the other raw almonds I've eaten. Thank you for the introduction to real, fresh almonds. I'll be figuring out how to order them more frequently.”
Carole, Suches, GA November 20, 2013
“Wow! The macadamia nuts, unsalted that you sent as a gift along with my purchases are amazing. Yummmm! I'm thrilled to buy the organic almonds, slivered almonds and walnuts. I've tried the almonds already and they're wonderful!”
Joshua, Bronx, NY November 19, 2013
“The reviews here are all true. The chlorella and spirulina is always great. I also love the almonds that are imported from Spain. My family used to grow almond trees in Spain and the taste reminds me of home. Thank you everyone from Nuts.com!”
