Sprouted almonds are a delicious snack that is packed with nutrients and easy to digest. Our sprouting process involves soaking the nuts for 24 hours causing them to begin to germinate. The sprouted almonds are then removed from the solution and slowly dried at a very low temperature with low humidity. This slow drying process destroys the enzyme inhibitors, releasing the full nutritional content of the nut and allowing the body’s natural enzymes to more easily digest the nuts. While much more time-consuming, sprouting makes nuts more digestible, gives them much greater nutritional value and makes them crunchier. Our sprouted almonds are unmistakably fresh with a smooth, buttery flavor.
4 Health Benefits Of Sprouted Almonds
1) Easy to Digest: Sprouted almonds are easier to digest than regular nuts because the soaking process releases their enzyme inhibitors. Without these inhibitors, our body’s own enzymes are more effective at helping us absorb the nut’s nutrients.
2) Better Nutrient Absorption: Sprouting nuts can help to break down their phytic acid, which is an antinutrient that binds with minerals and prevents their absorption. Sprouting can also help remove enzyme inhibitors, which block digestive enzymes. This process improves digestion of the almonds.
3) Easy to Chew: Our sprouted almonds are softer than ordinary almonds, making them a great snack for kids or anyone that has difficulty chewing hard foods.
4) Perfect for Recipes: Since sprouted almonds are smoother and less stiff than unsoaked nuts, they are perfect for making almond milk or almond butter. They are easy for your food processor to grind up and produce the desired consistency for your recipe. Sprouted almonds also tend to be slightly sweeter and creamier which makes them a wonderful addition to raw desserts and other creations.
Sprouted Almonds Nutrition
Snacking on sprouted almonds is one of the best ways to absorb all the nutrients almonds provide. A single serving of our sprouted almonds delivers seven grams of protein and four grams of dietary fiber. Among commonly eaten nuts, almonds are the leading source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat. This good fat has been proven to lower LDL “bad” cholesterol levels and reduce the risk for heart disease. Eating sprouted almonds can help regulate blood sugar levels, making them a great option for diabetics. Almonds are also abundant in antioxidants, the protective compounds that fight free radicals and reduce the risk for heart disease and stroke. They are additionally loaded with minerals like calcium and iron. Sprouted almonds are the perfect food for any health nut!
