Raw Almond Lawsuit and Fundraising IncentiveAugust 11th, 2009
The lawsuit seeking repeal of the controversial raw almond pasteurization mandate is continuing. Cornucopia is helping the farmers fighting the almond mandate and actively fundraising for the legal effort. Currently a legal appeal is being readied that will likely be filed in the next month.
You can help, too, and if you do, we can offer a gift from a dedicated almond enthusiast and supporter. Elana Amsterdam, of elanaspantry.com, will provide copy of The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook to the first ten people donating $200 or more.
The new, full-color book contains healthy gluten-free recipes using almond flour. The author encourages the use of almond flour because “almond flour is readily available… high in protein and low in sugars.” She says that, “after having tested just about every gluten-free flour out there, I can save you a lot of time and hassle when I say that almond flour is far superior to other flours in terms of taste, nutrition and ease-of-use.”
We hope these offers will encourage you to give to the fight for truly raw almonds from American producers.
