Why Soak (Sprout)?
Sprouting nuts is similar to the process that they would undergo in nature. When a nut falls off a tree during the autumn months, it sits on the ground until spring when it begins to germinate and grow.
Sprouting (also known as activating) disarms the inedible tannins and toxins that reside in the nut that prevent it from prematurely germinating in nature.
Sprouting noticeably transforms a normally dense nut into a much lighter, easier to digest nut that is more alkaline and has enhanced nutritional delivery.
The sprouting process also provides the nut with more vital life force because the nut is now further along in its growth cycle as opposed to being ungerminated.
All our sprouted nuts/seeds are soaked in water from a pristine, naturally alkaline deep well in Maine (not city water!).
We dehydrate as opposed to roasting to protect the oil in the nuts from going rancid. Roasting can damage the healthy polyunsaturated fats in nuts.
