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.

“I received my organic raw almonds and my raw sampler today. LOVE the cacao goji energy squares! I think I might have eaten them all before I finished opening my presents in the sampler pack. I will definitely be ordering again!”

“Awesome product and amazing service! I ordered my product yesterday afternoon and received it this morning! I don't know how they did it but I plan on ordering all my nuts from nuts.com from now on. I bought a nut butter machine a little while ago and am so excited that nuts.com has organic, truly raw almonds. I just finished making tahini and it tastes wonderful! I'm so glad I found this site.”

“Just received my batch of RAW Organic Almonds & Organic peppermint candy! You gave me hope again that I could find Unpasteurized Almonds! I naively thought that if they said raw but did not say pasteurized, that they were not! Well to make a long story short, I am thankful that I can enjoy my almonds as they were intended to be and they are fresh & delicious! I enjoy the vapor of mints this time of year and your organic mints are so refreshing! Have not tasted anything close to this fresh since I was a kid! Thanks to you and all of the organic suppliers out there for your dedication & integrity to good health! ”

“I love your raw organic almonds! I make an almond smoothie every morning, adding banana and raw cacao in the blender with the almonds. YUMMY! And thanks for calling me "nutty wanda". I love that ! :)”

“For many years, I thought that I hated Almonds. Then, one Christmas, there was a bowl of raw, unshelled almonds at a friends house. I was hungry and decided to eat one even though I hated them. To my surprise, they were absolutely delicious. It was then that I realized that it wasn't the almond that I hated, it was the storage and rancidity of shelled almonds in the store that I hated.
I ordered a bag of the Raw Organic Almonds from Nuts.com and they were as close to a freshly shelled almond as I have ever tasted (very similar to the almonds I shelled and ate at my friends house). I won't buy nuts from anyone but Nuts.com. Although I liked it better when their name was Nutsonline.com =)”

“My order of almonds, figs and walnuts just arrived. Super fast delivery. Since finding out that "raw" almonds i've been buying in stores aren't really raw, and possibly tainted with toxins, I was sure glad to have found nuts.com. SUPPORT these farmers that provide earth's goodness! ”
Michael, Stevenson, AL August 29, 2012
“My wife and I are very impressed with two orders we have received from you. The nuts and seeds are so fresh and just delicious. We are extremely happy with the super fast shipment. Quickest shipment we have received from any online shipper. Thank you so much. We will continue to order from nuts.com in the future!!!”

“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!!”
