Around the world, people are utilising the heightened values of activated nuts in their diets, enjoying healthier and more flavourful ingredients. Activation itself is a process that triggers the stage of germination or ‘sprouting’ in nuts and seeds. We trigger the sprouting process by soaking our almonds in water, apple cider vinegar and salt for 24 hours. Our almonds are then drained, rinsed well and dried at low temperatures for up to 48 hours. This entire process helps breakdown the phytic acid in the almonds which improves their digestibility and increases the nutrient absorption of minerals such as zinc, calcium and magnesium. The drying process is carried out at low temperatures, this protects the heat sensitive oil content of the almonds, preventing the oils from going rancid which is what occurs when they are roasted at high temperatures. We then either use these to create our popular and delicious Nut Butters or package them here for you to snack on or incorporate into your own recipes!
