so, what's up with raw almonds not really being raw because they are pasteurized?
do raw foodist still eat this almonds?
do all of you get the unpasteurized ones?
and, if so, where do you get them?
I would imagine they would be very expensive!!!

There are a TON of threads on this so I would do a search to read everything but here is one:
basically, you have to buy them directly from the farms in Cali or from overseas. All California grown almonds can not be sold on the stores shelves unless they are pasteurized. California grows 90% of the almonds used in USA.
I buy the ones grown in Europe.
And, yes they are expensive - pasteurized or not actually. The price of almonds have gone way up!
