The truth about raw almonds

In response to my wonderful viewers who have asked me why fresh almond milk isn’t working…I am so sad to say that the rumors are true. Almonds that are sold as raw almonds in Whole Foods and other health food store aren’t actually raw. They have been flash pasteurized. It is said this is from a salmonella scare, which I do appreciate being remedied. However I haven’t been able to make almond milk in like a year, and I think it should be illegal to sell almonds as raw, especially for like $21.99/lb, when they aren’t raw. A raw nut can be sprouted. I’ve called organic almond farms in california and they all say the same thing, it is mandatory to flash pasteurize the almonds. This kills the almond, so that is why it gets sour when soaked instead of sprouting. Anybody know where to get truly raw almonds? Darren Buttler talks about growing your own. Watch and learn more.
