Raw Italian Almonds - 16 oz. Bag
Raw Italian Almonds
Our Raw Italian Almonds are truly raw and truly delicious! Unlike almonds grown in the US, that are required to be pasteurized by law, our almonds, grown in Italy, are free from that regulation.
These almonds are grown by traditional methods with no chemical pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers used on the almond trees. It carries Healthy Traditions' highest standards to earn the "Traditionally Produced" label. As an added security, they are tested for the presence of glyphosate for each batch.
The family-run farm that grows these almonds for us is a diverse farm, not an almond monoculture, and these almonds are never irradiated, so they are suitable for sprouting.
When Healthy Traditions began to look at producing products in the U.S. from traditional sources, food that tested clean from GMOs, glyphosate, and other herbicides and pesticides, we were faced with a dilemma:
How do we package these high quality clean foods?
We began a search for packaging that did not contain harmful chemicals and was not harmful to the environment. What good is sourcing and selling high quality traditional food if it is going to be contaminated by the packaging?
The brown bags you see in our newest products, including our almonds, reflect what we found was currently the best option for packaging our high-quality line of traditional products.
These bags harmlessly decompose anywhere that microbes are present (salt and fresh water, soil, landfills or in a backyard compost).
They decompose into organic matter without leaving any pollutants behind. (Independent Lab tests show - "None Detected.")
They have been lab tested for possible leaching of many heavy metals and pollutants, and none were found.

Almonds - the perfect food.packet
How fortunate to be able to source such fine, pure and unadulterated nuts along with the rest of your fine products! I am a long-time satisfied customer. I soak these babies for maximum digestibility, and allow myself 12 of them as my breakfast with my morning coffee drink : Try this: Count out 36 almonds from Healthy Traditions' excellent packaging into a jar with a lid. Fill this jar with fresh water each morning after you count out a dozen to eat. The skins will slip off easier each of the 3 days until you start over with more almonds. In hot climates, you may wish to keep the jar in the 'fridge, and going more than 3 days of soaking may sour the taste and lessen nutrient value. Keep the remaining treasure in the 'fridge if you live where it's hot. Such a fast nutrient-dense breakfast that has served my family well for 2 decades! NOTE: this only works with RAW, unpasteurized organic nuts.
With snack food this good, you might just skip your regular meals.
Absolute best almonds
Love, love, love these. Real almond taste!
Best almonds I've had.
Most “raw”almonds aren’t raw. These guys seem to be.
