On November 2, 2012, I wrote about how some raw almonds have propylene oxide (PPO) on them. I knew for sure that the almonds from justalmonds.com do not have PPO on them. I wanted to find out if NOW Foods amonds have PPO on them. I called the company and found out that they use a “flash steam” process to pasteurize their almonds. I was glad to find this out since our local health food store carried NOW Foods almonds – Natural Unblanced Almonds, unsalted is what we buy.
