About Our Bulk Raw Almonds
All almonds, including our bulk raw almonds, trace their origins to the Middle East, specifically in the regions with a Mediterranean climate. Many of the almonds of that time were bitter and laced with naturally-produced cyanide. Today’s almond trees derive from ancient humans picking out and domesticating the rare sweet almonds discovered within the hordes of bitter ones.
