Activated nuts have been soaked in water and salt for a period of time, which starts off the germination or sprouting process, then dehydrated at a low temperature. Soaking increases the nutrient value of the nuts along with breaking down the problematic compounds that help enhance their digestibility. Raw nuts are a fantastic healthy snack, loaded with protein, healthy fats, fibre and important minerals like zinc, magnesium and calcium. However, nuts also contain natural chemicals that can interfere with the absorption of these nutrients. Activated nuts and seeds, as with fermented foods, become noticeably lighter, tastier, more nourishing, free of bitterness and markedly more-ish. They have been deemed, in fact, by some very alive customers of ours, “2die4”!
