Raw Organic Unpasteurized Almonds from Italy

Almonds are a rich source of Vitamin E, containing 24mg per 100g. They are also rich in monounsaturated fat, one of the two "good" fats responsible for lowering LDL cholesterol.

Claimed health benefits of almonds include improved complexion, improved movement of food through the colon (feces) and the prevention of cancer. Recent research associates the inclusion of almonds in the diet with elevating the blood levels of high density lipoproteins and of lowering the levels of low density lipoproteins.

A controlled trial showed that 73g of almonds in the daily diet reduced LDL cholesterol by as much as 9.4%, reduced the LDL:HDL ratio by 12.0%, and increased HDL-cholesterol (i.e., the good cholesterol) by 4.6%.

In Ayurveda, an ancient system of health care that is native to the Indian subcontinent, almond is considered a nutritive for brain and nervous system. It is said to induce high intellectual level and longevity. Almond oil is called Roghan Badam in both Ayurveda and Unani Tibb (the Greco-Persian System of Medicine). It is extracted by cold process and is considered a nutritive aphrodisiac both for massage and internal consumption. Recent studies have shown that the constituents of almond have anti-inflammatory, immunity boosting, and anti-hepatotoxicity effects.

The sweet almond contains practically no carbohydrates and may therefore be made into flour for cakes and cookies (biscuits) for low-carbohydrate diets or for patients suffering from diabetes mellitus or any other form of glycosuria. Almond flour is gluten-free and therefore a popular ingredient in cookery in place of wheat flour for gluten-sensitive people and people with wheat allergies and celiac disease. A standard serving of almond flour, 1 cup, contains 20 grams of carbohydrates, of which 10g is dietary fiber, for a net of 10g of carbohydrate per cup. This makes almond flour very desirable for use in cake and bread recipes by people on carbohydrate-restricted diets.

Because of cases of Salmonella traced to almonds in 2001 and 2004, in 2006 the Almond Board of California proposed rules regarding pasteurization of almonds available to the public, and the USDA approved them. Since September 2007, raw almonds have technically not been available from US growers. This does not apply to imported almonds, or to almonds sold from the grower directly to the consumer in small quantities. (Our almonds are imported from Italy and are truly raw.)

    These raw almonds are really delicious and fresh. So sweet! Almonds that actually taste rich and sweet, they remind me of almond extract (intense flavor). Great in muesli and my homemade trail mixes.

    Finally, someplace I can get raw almonds. Figures they have to come from Italy. Hard to find raw unpasteurized almonds, and these taste great.
