View Full Version : Nuts: How important is it they be raw vs just organic

There are some nuts and perhaps other items it is difficult to get raw and organic.........if they are just organic am I wasting my money buying these if my ultimate goal is weight loss in addition to better health mentally and physically?

I'm not sure of the question. Are you asking if roasted, toasted, nuts. even though organic, are more fattening than raw?
Personally, I will eat raw non-organic before eating nuts that have been roasted, toasted, dipped, etc. From my point of view, what's the point in eating organic if the nutrients/enzymes have been depleted in the other processes?
Waiting to see others' opinions on this.

well, i've read somewhere that if you roast or toast nuts, the fat in them turns into trans-fat because it's heated....so that's bad...i'm not sure where i heard that...anyone else know?

I always try to get organic first in everything I buy, but I dont kill myself trying to find them. But then I do regular fasts 3 - 4 times a year to get rid of the toxins that can build up. But now that I am raw, I buy RAW. Cashews yummy!

Hi, the big raw gurus, Paul Nisson, Victoria Boutenko, etc,
all say this is the order of importance
so if it is raw, fresh and ripe, the organic isn't as important, although it is important.
if it is fresh, ripe, organic and not raw, don't eat it.
