I think that this question is off-topic. If you have a specific nutrient you are interested in, please edit it and I will reopen it. If you want information on all the dozens of nutrients contained in almonds, it is too broad. If you generally want to know if hot extracted oil is somehow "less healthy" than other methods of oil extraction, then it is a health related question and thus off-topic for the site. And your wording of "goodness" makes me think that this is what you had in mind in the first place. –  rumtscho Oct 28 '13 at 11:59

1 Answer 1

to preserve most of the nutrition, you can soak the almonds for 18-20 hours in warm filtered salt water and then drying them in an oven at 170-200F for several hours or a dehydrator. This will even preserves the enzymes present in the almonds that help you digest them (in raw almonds).
