    "Frozen" Raw Nuts

    Dear ALL, In his many valuable posts, Dean has speculated that nuts do not deliver as many calories as the nutritional information indicates. In fact, as I recall, previous posts to the old CR List provided some evidence that this is true, at least for almonds. However, I'm skeptical that that will be significantly true for nuts that are softer (and therefore I'd guess more digestible) than almonds. Like many of you, I store my nuts in the freezer. There, I keep raw almonds, raw cashews, raw hazelnuts, raw peanuts and dry-roasted peanuts. For the past several months, when I eat nuts (which is daily), I've been eating them right out of the freezer -- "frozen" (not really -- actually "directly from the freezer") nuts. They're delicious -- I may even prefer them "frozen". I speculate that Dean's hypothesis may be more true for the "frozen" nuts -- which are probably harder to digest than when at room temperature. -- Saul
