Unlocking the Power of Almonds: Exploring Health Benefits, Safety, and Sustainable Sourcing

Spread The Love is committed to providing healthy, delicious, and environmentally friendly products. Our UNSALTED Almond Butter is unique for two key reasons: our avoidance of harmful chemical pasteurization and our dedication to using locally sourced California almonds.

Almond Benefits 

Almonds, renowned for their crunchy texture and delightful flavor, offer an array of health benefits. Almonds are a powerhouse of nutrition, rich in essential nutrients like vitamin E, magnesium, and protein. Almonds are rich in healthy fats, contributing to heart health by reducing LDL cholesterol levels and promoting healthy blood pressure.

Additionally, their high magnesium content aids in relaxation, promoting better sleep quality. Incorporating almonds, specifically almond butter, into one's diet enhances overall well-being and adds a delicious and nutritious element to meals and snacks.

Avoiding PPO in Almond Pasteurization

We do not use Propylene Oxide (PPO), a chemical often used in almond pasteurization and classified as a possible carcinogen. Despite these concerns, PPO pasteurization is still not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States. This lack of regulation means that consumers may unknowingly consume almonds that have been treated with this potentially harmful chemical.

At Spread The Love, we use steam pasteurization, a natural and safe method that maintains the almonds' nutritional quality without harmful chemicals. 

Locally Sourced California Almonds

Our use of California almonds further demonstrates our commitment to quality and sustainability. California is known for producing some of the highest-quality almonds in the world. By sourcing our almonds locally, we support California farmers and reduce the environmental impact associated with long-distance transportation.

Using locally sourced almonds also means that our products are fresher and retain more of their natural flavor and nutritional value. 

Spread The Love's UNSALTED Almond Butter offers almond butter lovers a healthier, safer, and more sustainable choice. Join us in our mission to Spread The Love, one healthy, delicious almond at a time.
