Default Nuts Part 2

Ok so I suppose that I should have asked this before when I originally posted my first question about nuts.....

I just noticed that I accidently bought a bag of mixed nuts that were not DRY ROASTED. We have been eating them 2- 3 X per week and haven't seen an effect that I am aware of from them.....

Is there a big reason for the dry roasted other than fat?

I am kinda dumb when it comes to this subject and as I noticed today when in the nut aisle that for the most part there are very few dry roasted varieties.... Besides well peanuts and I find them fairly boring.

Sorry for asking the same darn question but I am really trying to do this the right way minus the minor things I have adjusted for me.

I guess it depends on how they are prepared, ie. honey roasted, salted, sugared, baked in oil, other seasonings added?

As long as they're not sweetened, the fats in nuts are good fats. I've never noticed the dry roast recommendations and it has not affected me on SB.

These are roasted in peanut oil and no added sugars. I knew to stay away from the honey roasted but didn't notice that these were roasted in oils. It hasn't seemed to matter much but I just didn't want to screw things up over a few nuts. LOL
