Nutrition

Nuts are rich in enzymes, as well as other nutrients, but they also contain enzyme inhibitors. Unless deactivated, these enzyme inhibitors can put great strain on the digestive system. Sprouting, soaking in warm acidic water, sour leavening, culturing and fermenting—all processes used in traditional societies—deactivate enzyme inhibitors, thus making nutrients more readily available.

My almonds, cashews and walnuts all undergo the sprouting process, thus maximizing the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients in the raw nuts. It also creates a delicious, and uniquely crunchy nut. Our nuts are OIL AND SALT FREE! Snacking has never been so healthy.

I’m very proud of the fact that my product is all homegrown in the USA and locally sourced.

  • Almonds, like most nuts, were thought to have too much fat to be a healthy snack. Research has debunked that belief as an old myth.
  • One study showed that three ounces of almonds a day actually lowered a person’s cholesterol by 14%.
  • 90% of the fat in almonds is unsaturated fat, and frequent consumption, as a result, could help lower blood cholesterol levels.
  • Almonds are loaded with protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin E and other antioxidants and phytochemicals.
  • The folic acid in almonds is believed to help lower levels of homocystein, the amino acid that is thought to contribute to the buildup of fatty plaque in the arteries.
  • And studies have shown links between nut consumption and lower risk of cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic illnesses.
  • A Mediterranean study found that over the course of 28 months, frequent nut consumers gained less weight than whose who never ate nuts, and were 43% less likely to become overweight or obese.
  • In a nutshell, almonds are an excellent source of fiber, vitamin E, zinc, selenium, copper, potassium, phosphorus, biotin, riboflavin, niacin, and iron.
