But how are they roasted? What kind of oil is used? Is vegetable oil used? Another potential fast one. A few books I've read warning to avoid roasted nuts due to the types of oils that are / could be used.
If they are dry roasted then there should not be any oil involved unless the label lies:
Dry roasting is a process by which heat is applied to dry foodstuffs without the use of oil or water as a carrier. Unlike other dry heat methods, dry roasting is used with foods such as nuts and seeds, in addition to some eaten insects such as house crickets. Dry-roasted foods are stirred as they are roasted to ensure even heating.

Good to know - thanks.

And then there is store bought pesto. Ingredients says olive oil, but I've read about lower grade oo that has actually been found to be laced with (toxic) vegetable oils.

Good thing I can make my own: Classic Pesto [ dietdoctor ]
