Nuts are considered health foods for their nutrients density and they can be very beneficial for our diet, especially if we activate (soak) them first.
This multipack includes two large bags (70g each) of natural tasting activated nuts, without additional flavouring – almonds and a nut mix, which contains equal parts of almonds, cashews and walnuts.
Like all Nutmad products, these nuts have been soaked in water to reduce the effect of some natural chemicals such as phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors. The soaking, also called activation, makes the nuts easier to digest and increases the bio-availability of their nutrients.
The same natural chemicals occur in seeds, grains and legumes, which makes them hard to digest. When these foods are consumed in large amounts or on a regular basis, they can put a strain on our digestive system. Especially people on a vegetarian or vegan diet, could benefit particularly from activated nuts and seeds, since they are an important plant protein source.
