Certified Organic Almonds

Technically, the almond is the seed of the fruit of the almond tree, which we refer to as the almond nut. Almonds can be roasted, toasted, or eaten raw. They are often used in trail mixes, but also used in sweet pastries such as marzipan and macarons. Almonds are especially delicious when made into a creamy butter – a popular alternative for peanut allergy sufferers.

Regulatory & Compliance

Allergen Information Contains Tree Nuts.
Note Health Note on European Almonds: Please be aware that all almonds contain a naturally occurring chemical called “amygdalin”. Almonds of European origin typically contain a higher concentration of amygdalin than do U.S. domestic almonds. A sampling of almonds will typically contain a small number of so-called “bitter” almonds, almonds in which the amygdalin concentration is extremely high. The European almonds sourced by Multiple Organics are specified by our supplier to have less than 1% by weight of bitter almonds. Bitter almonds are generally indistinguishable from sweet almonds upon visual examination, but are acutely bitter/sour to the taste. Consumption of excessive amounts of amygdalin can be harmful and even fatal to humans and pets. Severity of symptoms from excessive amygdalin consumption is reported in literature as being closely correlated to body weight, with lighter individuals (such as children and the elderly) being at greater risk. For this reason, this product is not intended for pet consumption or consumption by young children, immune-compromised individuals, the elderly, or pregnant or lactating women
