In the heart of California almond country, known to some as the Central Valley, the nuts that will become Trader Joe's Raw Creamy Almond Butter are grown. After harvest, those nuts are steam pasteurized - heated at low temperatures (210º-215ºF) for about eight seconds. This doesn't cook the almonds; rather, it exposes them to just enough heat to ensure safety. The almonds are then taken directly to a nearby facility, where fresh, raw almonds are turned into Raw Creamy Almond Butter. How does this miracle of transformation happen? It's so simple, so basic, and yet, magical. The almonds are shelled and the skins left on. The raw, skin-on almonds are then ground into a creamy butter. Jars are filled with Raw Creamy Almond Butter, and those jars are loaded on to trucks headed straight for Trader Joe's. There's one ingredient in every jar - raw California almonds.

Enjoy Trader Joe's Raw Creamy Almond Butter as you would any other nut butter - on sandwiches, in baked goods or sauces, in smoothies, on apple slices or spread on celery sticks. It's versatile, nutritious, and oh-so delicious. We're selling each 16 ounce jar of Raw Creamy Almond Butter for $7.99, every day.
