BTR™ Almonds, "European Truly Raw Almonds" (10 oz) - SPROUTED, Certified Organic, Raw
Completely unpasteurized almonds from Europe! Grown on the sunny slopes of Sicily and come from highly prized hard shell almond trees. Hard-shelled almonds are more intensely flavored, have a higher concentration of almond oil and are much more rare and difficult to harvest. We think they are definitely worth the effort because that hard shell protects the seed and allows it to fully develop its essential almond-ness. Molto bene!
Almonds are high in antioxidant vitamin E, fiber, and monounsaturated fats. They're also an excellent source of manganese, magnesium, tryptophan, copper, vitamin B12 and phosphorus.
Ingredients: Premium, organic, whole, raw, sprouted Italian almonds.
Certified Organic By Stellar Certification Services.
We start with premium, whole, certified organic nuts or seeds, which are kept in airtight cold storage to maximize freshness greatly reduce rancidity. We do not use seconds or pieces, since broken skins and nut fragments invite rancidity. We give preference to sources that implement fair trade practices.
Our Better-Than-Roasted™ (BTR™) nuts, seeds, and grains are all handmade in small batches. The process involves first soaking, rinsing and then drying the nuts or seeds. Our BTR™ nuts and seeds are dried at low, steady temperatures. Keeping the dehydrating temperatures lower than 108 degrees Fahrenheit maintains the raw qualities of the nuts and seeds, preserving the temperature-sensitive enzymes and maximizing the nutritional value of the nuts and seeds.
Additionally, we cull the nuts, seeds and grains as we soak them, spread them for drying, and again as we package them. This three-fold quality control process results in an extremely high quality, fresh, sweet and crisp nut or seed that is both healthier and better tasting than raw and conventionally roasted nuts or seeds.
We store our Better-Than-Roasted™ nuts and seeds in airtight packaging and cool temperatures to insure freshness and quality.
