Nutmost Activated Nuts - Himalayan Salt Almonds 50g
Nuts about nuts
"I’ve always been a healthy foodie but I also love a sneaky snack. Rather than have to put a stop to either – because I know which I’d have chosen – I set out to see if I ﬁnd a snack that put the well into well-being. My girlfriend had lived in LA – the home of healthy living and was exposed to different food practices and lifestyles there. On her return she was activating nuts in small batches in our kitchen. I was blown away by the fact that they didn’t just do good but tasted great too. They were tastier, crunchier and far easier to digest than conventional nuts. And because the process was natural, they were bursting with nutrients too. I decided to bring the idea to the mass market and so Nutmost was born, with our mission to produce the most delicious and nutritious snacks using only the ﬁnest ingredients."

What are activated nuts?
Activated nuts are nuts that have been soaked in water and salt for a period of time, kicking off the germination or sprouting process before dehydrating at a low temperature. Soaking increases the nutrient value of the nuts along with breaking down the sometimes problematic compounds resulting in a nut that is easier to digest.
Why you might like activated nuts:
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. Raw nuts contain phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors that can reduce the body’s ability to absorb certain nutrients properly. Eating large amounts of raw nuts can put extra pressure on your digestive system and may cause uncomfortable digestive symptoms like bloating, heaviness and nausea.
