Did you know ALL U.S. grown almonds are pasteurized? Pasteurization destroys flavor and nutritional value. Most U.S. pasteurization occurs by gassing the almonds in a chemical called propylene oxide (PPO). PPO is considered a probable carcinogen and is illegal to use on food in most other countries in the world.
Our almonds come from organic farms in Spain and Italy where, unlike the U.S., pasteurization is not required. With all of their nutrition and flavor intact, these unpasteurized European almonds are truly raw and are therefore able to be fully sprouted. Additionally, since they come from Europe, they're closer to the original heirloom varieties of almond trees than grafted California almonds.
