Government Requires Pasteurization of All Almonds, Even Organic & Raw 

'If you are purist when it comes to nutritional value of nuts, it may come as a shock to discover that most of the world’s almonds are heat treated. A little known secret in almond production and processing is that irrespective of the status of standard, raw or organically produced almonds, the world’s largest producer is required, according to The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), to pasteurize all almonds. This means even organic and raw almonds shipped in North America are exposed to heat treatments.'
