Sprouted nuts and seeds make us special

Sprouted nuts and seed is part of our mission. It means that all of them are soaked in warm water for eight or more hours.

Why add the expense and two extra days to our production process? Because this transforms your nutrition from just okay to incredible.

My mother used to soak her almonds and any dry fruit we would eat at home.

She did not know why she was doing it.

I learned this trick from her, except that now we understand why our ancestors passed this tradition from mother to daughter.

 

As I’ve written before, it is very difficult to find farms that are certified organic and do not steam, irradiate or pasteurize their nuts and seeds, i.e. kill them.  We need them captured alive – raw!  Although live, they are still in a dormant state which means that they are not yet ready to eat.   You heard it right!

 These beautiful raw nuts and seeds are not ready to eat.

Why?!?  Seeds and nuts (nuts are in fact seeds) have a purpose in nature, to be carried off by wind or animal and grow into another plant.  To protect itself, the seed contains phytic acid, a physiological protectant which is located in the outer layer, the bran.

In the intestinal tract however, this acid binds with the seed’s wonderful minerals such as calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and especially zinc, and inhibits their absorption into the body robbing us of these wonderful nutrients.
