Tips for Storing Organic Almonds

  • Buying in bulk helps you save a ton of money, but what to do with all of the extra almonds? You have several options.
  • Find a few friends or family members who will split your bulk organic almond purchase with you.
  • If this isn't an option, you can easily store your organic almonds in your freezer.
  • I'd recommend storing almonds in your freezer, even if you don't have a lot. This is because freezing almonds helps to keep all the essential fatty acids that help lower your LDL (bad cholesterol) levels intact.
  • Make almond butter! It's so easy - toast almonds in your oven and blend in a food processor. You shouldn't need to add oil, but you can if you feel you want a different consistency. Making your own organic almond butter can help you save a ton of money.

Organic Raw Almonds

These raw organic almonds found on are fantastic deals. I love how they are packaged in smaller containers, which help promote freshness! I prefer the Good Sense Organic's brand and love the deal I get from Amazon; three 6-ounce bags for $18.28. Plus, Amazon offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more, so if you find another product that you need and reach that total, you can get free shipping! I keep a bag in my car, one in my "snack drawer" and the other in my freezer until I am ready to use it.

Organic Roasted Almonds

Roasted organic almonds are such a treat. I personally feel that raw almonds are healthier due to the fact that their healthy fatty oils are more intact, however once in a while, I treat myself. Roasted almonds make fantastic homemade almond butter and are the salted kinds are one of my favorite snacks. It can be difficult to find organic roasted almonds, but Amazon does carry some quality brands. Check out some of the available options to the right. I love Maisie Jane's snack packs as I could probably eat an entire bag of roasted almonds, otherwise. Plus, Maisie Jane's snack packs are salt-free!

      Hi Don, thanks for stopping by!

      In order to label a food organic, the processor must go through stringent regulations as set forth by the USDA. Certain methods need to be followed during the growth of the product, including no pesticides, hormones, chemicals, etc. You would be amazed as to what is pumped into non-organic livestock. blech. I feel so much better now that I don't eat it anymore.

      Some states have organic farmers associations which also certify produce, which can be cheaper for local farmers as getting certified organic with the USDA costs more. Personally, I prefer stuff certified by my state's organic farmer's association as I haven't always been a fan of the USDA. "Natural" isn't regulated at all, so essentially anyone can write natural on a product and let the consumer decide how credible they are (reminds me of presenting evidence to a jury).

      So it seems like organic is a technicality? Okay, what makes a food organic versus natural?

      You can purchase organic almonds at those locations, however they also sell natural almonds which are not the same as organic. You just have to check the packaging and read the label.

      I am an almond lover. especially the roasted ones.

      So it has to say organic?

      what about t-r-a-d-e-r-joes? or w-h-o-l-e foods?
