Propylene oxide was once used as a racing fuel, but that usage is now prohibited under the US NHRA rules for safety reasons. It has also been used in glow fuel for model aircraft and surface vehicles, typically combined in small percentages of around 2% as an additive to the typical methanol, nitromethane, and oil mix. It is also used in thermobaric weapons, and microbial fumigation.
According to the EPA, short-term exposure to PPO has caused eye and respiratory tract irritation, and skin irritation and necrosis. It's also a mild central nervous system depressant and causes inflammatory lesions of the nasal cavity, trachea, and lungs. In animal studies, PPO causes neurological effects and tumors, leading EPA to classify it as a class B2 carcinogen, and California, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, and Massachusetts to list it on their state right-to-know registries as a known carcinogen.
If you are eating almonds for the health benefits, DO NOT purchase these almonds.
There are companies that only use steam pasteurization for their almonds, and although they are more expensive, organic raw unpasteurized almonds can be found on Amazon.
I found one issue with this order which is not related to the quality of the product. One of the bags I received had been cut by a box cutter presumably in the warehouse. The almonds were still fresh so I just put them in a zip-lock bag. Hopefully shipping is a bit more careful next time.
MORE HEALTHY than LIGHTLY-ROASTED LIGHTLY-SALTED ALMONDS?
LIGHTLY ROASTED VS UNROASTED
> Thorough roasting makes almonds more digestable.
> Unroasted almonds (like peanuts) are susceptable to fungus which can be carcinogenic.
> While commercial domestic almonds sold in the US do not contain significant levels of cyanide, bitter almonds do. Bitter almonds have a much richer almond flavor, particular in baked goods. Indeed natural almond extract is made from bitter almonds---artificial almond extract is safer. Bitter almonds are sometimes illegally sold in the US and are often encountered in other countries, and do contain dangerous levels of cyanide when raw. 7-10 raw bitter almonds can kill a child. Moreover, a child raised on raw ordinary almonds may conclude that raw peach pits (essentially a variety of almonds) or bitter almonds bought for cooking are safe to eat---they are NOT. The safest practice is NOT to eat unroasted almonds.
LIGHTLY SALTED VS UNSALTED
Humans crave salt because it is essential for human health. True, most commercially processed foods contain salt, and if you live on high-salt commercial foods, you may be getting too much salt. But, if you eat even moderately healthy (mostly fruits, vegetables, and fresh meat), there is nothing "bad" about a few salted almonds.
Blue Diamomd roasted, salted, almonds of any variety are special: fresh, crunchy, and delicious. However there is NOTHING special about Blue Diamond unroasted unsalted almonds. 5-pound bags of generic unsalted unroasted almonds which I bought for cooking (at BJ's) are just as flavorful, for a fraction of the price of Blue Diamond.
