Im in the UK looking for raw nuts, but how do I know. Do they have to label paturised or blanched nuts? Because I cant find any that are labeled RAW.
4 days raw so far :) 100% from a couple weeks 50%

I'm wondering also.
IT seems the only guarantee is if you watch it fall from the tree. :)
Here, shelled nuts that are definitely raw and the seller wants you to know are labeled as such.
There is a bruhaha over almonds though that mysteriously will be required to be pasteurized and not have to be labeled though. :confused:
I've seen nuts--but unless it says "raw", I steer clear. But I am not a big nut fan anyway, so it isn't something I seek out with gusto.
(I have seen nuts labeled as blanched, but never pasteurized--so here, I don't think it is legally required to label them that. Have you tried nuts in the shell?)

In the UK.. I wouldnt trust anything in the store labelled raw anyways.
Ring the manufacturer and find out what temperature they are processed at
Otherwise order them online from reputable source, easiest thing to be sure-- or sprout them!
If you have a local organic store or wholefoods store-- they should be able to source them for you
Whereabouts in the uk??

At the moment supermarkets are still selling nuts in their shells - you know they are raw!

Im from Manchester, the only nuts I have seen in the supermarket still in the shell are monkey nuts though.
Cheers for the replies.

I buy raw cashews from www.detoxyourworld . Other than that I sneak some in every time I go to the US and a friend brought me 5 lbs or raw macadamias recently.
Being in their shell does not necessarily mean that they are raw.
