Almonds good or bad?

I soaked almonds in warm water and salt for 48 hrs. There was this white foam that appeared on top with a weird smell. After rinsing once done soaking the almonds had a weird taste..... I feel like saying an acidity taste. I have them in dehydrator but I am not sure if they are good or safe to eat?? Never happened to me before Can anyone give me some feedback please

    Maybe they went bad. Rotten almonds can be pretty acidic.

    If I don't like the smell of something I'd never try to consume it. Also even when it's safe to eat but has a bad taste, I don't think you have to eat it...

    Maybe they weren't organic, so pesticide/insecticide residue?

    Hello, Melissa. It hasn't happened with me before, though, I buy almonds every week. Sometimes, if I feel some strange smell of them, I just prepare an almond butter, using my food processor. Then I am not afraid to eating them it at all. Maybe, you should try it too.
