Bulk Tip: Sprouted Almonds

Phytic Acid – The Anti Nutrient

Grains, seeds, nuts, and legumes have a built-in growth inhibitor called phytic acid, which keeps them from germinating until temperature and moisture conditions are just right. Phytic acid, also called phytates, blocks phosphorus absorption and binds with other minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc, making them unavailable as well. It also inhibits enzymes needed to digest food. Overconsumption of phytic acid can lead to mineral depletion, especially for people in developing countries where grain based foods make up the majority of the diet.

So What Exactly is a sprouted almond?

Sprouted almonds have gone through the process of partial germination. Our ancestors understood the unhealthy dynamics of raw nuts, seeds, grains, and legumes, hence their food preparation techniques included soaking, fermenting, sourdough-making, and sprouting to neutralize the phytic acid and increase the nutritional value and make digestion easier.
