Just Raw Almonds, Certified Organic, Californian

Product Description
Wilderness Family Naturals Just Raw Almonds are not pasteurized nor are they heated at any time, roasted or toasted. They are truly raw.

Our Certified Organic Almonds are fresh, flavorful and delicious. We do our best to procure the highest quality nuts available. These almonds come from a coop of small family organic farms in California. All the farmers in this coop use a quick burst of steam on their almonds after they are shelled and before they are dried to make sure they are clean. Since it is illegal for almond farmers in America to sell their product unless it is "pasteurized", these farmers have selected the most minimal processing that they can and still comply with US law. These almonds are delicious and sweet and they taste just like the raw almonds we purchased for so many years.

Once the Almonds arrive at Wilderness Family Naturals, we take extra measures, such as refrigeration and vapor barrier packaging to insure that you receive only the best.

In July 2003, the FDA released a qualified health claim stating "Scientific evidence suggests, but does not prove, that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease."
