The previous discussion of almonds got me interested because I like almonds. So I did some searching on the web and found that sweet almonds may contain a small amount of amygdalin that can turn into cyanide when chewed. However, I couldn't find out if this was a problem or not. Consuming it regularly either cures cancer or it causes high blood pressure and blindness. Actually, I don't think there is a problem. Probably just decide individually how you do on them.
Bitter almonds are known for actually being poisonous, but these are not the kind sold for consumption.
The link might be helpful to you. It is recommendations about handling almonds and other nuts by rawfooders. Looks like you'll have to click on recipes and then on nuts when you get there. Sorry.
If anyone has other info I'd certainly be interested.
