Raw Versus Roasted Almond Butter

Although the macronutrient profiles of roasted and raw almonds are similar, many adherents of raw foodism believe the roasting process reduces the nutritional value of the almonds. They also argue that the beneficial enzymes found in unroasted almonds are destroyed when the almonds are heated above 40 °C (104 °F).

Famous quotes containing the words butter, almond, raw and/or roasted:

    In mathematics he was greater
    Than Tycho Brahe, or Erra Pater:
    For he, by geometric scale,
    Could take the size of pots of ale;
    Resolve, by sines and tangents straight,
    If bread and butter wanted weight;
    And wisely tell what hour o’ th’ day
    The clock doth strike, by algebra.
    Samuel Butler (1612–1680)

    I want to go back, out of the bad stories,
    But there’s always the possibility that the next one . . .
    No, it’s another almond tree, or a ring-swallowing frog . . .
    Yet they are beautiful as we people them
    With ourselves.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    One farmer says to me, “You cannot live on vegetable food solely, for it furnishes nothing to make bones with;” and so he religiously devotes a part of his day to supplying his system with the raw material of bones; walking all the while he talks behind his oxen, which, with vegetable-made bones, jerk him and his lumbering plow along in spite of every obstacle.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    They shall eat the lamb that same night; they shall eat it roasted over the fire with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. Do not eat any of it raw or boiled in water, but roasted over the fire, with its head, legs, and inner organs.
    Bible: Hebrew, Exodus 12:8-9.
