Although these almonds are labeled "Whole Natural", Blue Diamond pasteurizes these nuts with PPO (Polypropylene Oxide), a chemical used in the production of antifreeze and hydraulic fluid, and a known carcinogen.

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.

We've been buying bags of Blue Diamond almonds for several years now and are very well pleased with their quality. When we open a bag for the first time, the almonds are always fresh and crisp. Moreover, they're all just about the same size and we've never encountered a broken one. We've tried a couple other brands of almonds, and the Blue Diamond brand almonds remain our favorites. They're a great snack and sure beat candy and other sweets for their healthful properties.

But at the price I paid, it is expensive. I did better buying the 2 lb. bag at Wally's World.

Blue Diamond is an old California brand that I remember from my childhood. I use almonds a lot in my diet and the price for organic almonds is becoming prohibitive. these almonds are the next thing to organic almonds at a slightly more reasonable price. They are what they say they are; natural, no preservatives. The bag is easy to close so the almonds stay fresh. I was pleased to find these offered at reasonable price. However, the California drought has hit the almond industry very hard and many orchards have been dying as a result so the price of almond will surely keep going up in the near future.

I keep a bag of these almonds in the car, my desk at work, and on the kitchen counter at home. A handful of these healthy and tasty almonds will quell any hunger between meals. Anytime I feel snacky, I just dump some of these in my hand (please don't reach your dirty hands into a bag if there is even a chance you will want to share these with others -- have some manners), and I am good to go. After the gym, on the way home from work, or about 30 minutes before lunch to make sure I don't overeat. Great for those on a diet or just want to eat healthier snacks. Did I mention that they are delicious?

Blue Diamond almonds are a healthy snack that taste great. They come in strong, durable, re-sealable packaging that make them very easy to transport and eat on the go. The healthy fats obtained from these almonds are not only a great source of energy, but they also provide a great source of fiber to keep your digestion system feeling regulated. This specific package is completely spice free which keeps your sodium and blood pressure levels low while eating a healthy and great tasting snack. I also feel this pack of three is a great deal compared to buying them separately at big-box chain stores.

I am a big almond fan and love Blu Diamond Natural Almonds. They arrived quickly and are fresh. The expiration is for well over a year from when they arrived. If your tired of paying the big box store prices for these than you have come to the right place.

Update:

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.

"Blue Diamond Whole Natural Almonds" are excellent unroasted and unsalted almonds. But, if (like me) you prefer the flavor of roasted and lightly-salted almonds, they simply are not as tasty as roasted, lightly-salted almonds.

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.

VALUE
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.
