Even the "raw" almonds people are buying that the sellers claim as truly "raw" are not raw. I am even talking about the almonds sellers claim they have purchased before the pasteurization law was put into effect. Here is the link:
I am SO upset at this as I had trusted the almonds to be raw. Even the almond butter we eat isn't, eaither.
What can we do?????

Not to worry...if you search the forum there are two great companies you can buy truly raw almonds from...AND...Alissa is now selling truly raw almonds. The company I bought from isn't certified organic but they do a lot of organic practices and they were only $60 including shipping for 10 lbs!! They're great.

Oh, almond butter is the same...it's not really raw anymore when you buy from health food stores. The only raw almond butter I've found is from here http://www.livingtreecommunity.com/

Sorry, this link isn't working. Try this one
We should all be outraged!!

This means ALL almonds. NONE are raw anymore, including the ones from Allissas' store!! Sorry to say. Please read the link!!:(

That link doesn't work for me, but it's not true that they are all pasteurized. It's illegal to sell non-pasteurized almonds to stores, but the farmers are able to sell them directly to people. Therefore there are a few farms who value this and sell non-pasteurized. VERY few. But some do. Including Alissa's source.

Nope. Sorry. It's not true. Maybe a couple of farmers out there have some, but the majority that say they are raw aren't, even the stores that say they are they are lying.:(

whoa, my head just about did a 360 when you said that about the almonds! I was like, "NOOOOOO! It's hard enough to find raw food without ACTUAL raw food not even being raw anymore!"
