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.

“These almonds are awesome. I can't believe how fast the shipping was to Hawai‘i. I sprouted, and dehydrated, my first batch and the sweet almond taste is outstanding. Mahalo for selling certified gluten free nuts!”

“Wonderful products and I loved the shipping box. Had to sample all of the freeze dried fruit right away - so flavorful and the nuts are a lot fresher than many I have had from other sources. Thank you.”

“These almonds are the best, only nuts.com is trusted to buy organic raw almonds from because they know that there are plenty other places listing raw almonds illegally because California almonds being pasteurized are not raw at all. ”
Eddie Varner, Atlanta, GA March 24, 2013
“I generally use an organic Date farmer in Arizona and an organic RAW almond farmer from California for my 2 favorite snacks. They were both out but thankfully I found nuts.com. The products are GREAT and they threw in some walnuts which were out of this world! THE ONLY BAD THING I CAN SAY is i didn't order sooner :) Delivery was awesomely fast too! ”

Vicki, Sammamish, WA March 5, 2013
“These organic raw almonds I ordered are the bomb. Most instructions say it takes about 48 hours or so to sprout almonds. These were sprouting after the initial soak!! These almonds are amazing, obviously VERY alive and they taste amazing. Thanks!”

“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!!”
