Does anybody know if the nuts & seeds marked "raw" from Trader Joe's are truely raw? I buy them out of convience, but I've been reading a lot of posts lately, and doubting whether these nuts & seeds are truely "raw". Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give!! :) :o

Personally, I don't think they are truely raw, especially the almonds and cashews. But, when I first started raw, I bought them from Trader Joe's and used them for convenience. Now, I only buy nuts on-line for reliable raw sources.

The cashews definitely aren't and the almonds no longer are raw, but I've used the other ones, like the organic walnuts and pumpkin seeds.

I wonder about the almonds because, at Trader Joe's, they used to be labeled raw, then almost raw, and now they are being labeled raw again. When I asked about them when they were labeled mostly raw (before I put them back on the shelf!), I was told there had been some problem. Trader Joe's seems reputable to me, like they are trying to do the right thing. This isn't something I definitely know, but.....open for any thoughts here.

Someone got food poisoning from them, so they started to blanch them. I don't know if they're now raw or not, but at least for a while they weren't raw.
