â€™ve been lurking for a while, and finally signed up. Wanted to introduce myself to this great board, and also had a couple of questions. I checked out the deadfoodlist on purelyraw.com â€“ so, Iâ€™m a huge fan of dried fruit, but the site indicates that most have been blanched, gassed, and high temp dried. Does anyone know if the dried fruit sold online at the Jaffe bros. site, on realrawfood.com, sunfood nutrition, rawguru, rawfoodtalk, naturalzing, or livingtree are exceptions to this rule? Also, I live in NYC and frequent both the Health Nuts stores and the Queens Health Emporium, both of which package their own dried fruit, and also sell in bulk bins â€“ does anyone know if these are also exceptions? I can certainly ask on my next trip, but was curious to see if any fellow NYC-based raw foodies had already done so and might be willing to share what they learned.
One more thing â€“ has anyone found a brand of nori that isnâ€™t dried at high temps? The Maine Sea Coast Vegetables website states that their raw nori has not been heated above 105 degrees and is suitable for raw foodists – does anyone know if that’s true? what about the nori sold in the asian supermarkets (direct from Asia and all that)?
