***Because the laws and regulations in the USA demand the pasteurization of almonds grown here; these almonds come all the way from Europe! We buy them Organic and 100% Raw and then soak, sprout and dehydrate them.*** :)
Why soak/sprout your nuts and seeds? Well...High in vitamins, minerals, protein and healthy fats, nuts and seeds are little powerhouses of nutrition. However, nuts and seeds also contain phytic acid and large amounts of enzyme inhibitors which protect them from sprouting until they have the rain and sun they need to grow. And unfortunately, these natural chemicals can be quite hard on the stomach. So, if you’ve ever had tummy trouble after eating nuts and seeds, don’t give up on them yet! In nature, a seed or nut normally gets enough moisture from rain to wash off the acids and enzyme inhibitors so it can germinate and produce a plant. By soaking nuts and seeds before you eat them, you imitate nature by neutralizing these growth inhibitors, releasing the natural enzymes and vitality within them. These enzymes, in turn, increase the vitamin content of your nuts and seeds, especially the B vitamins. Soaking also makes them much easier to digest and enables their many nutrients to be more easily absorbed by your body.https://www.smallfootprintfami...
Buckwheat Nutrition: Buckwheat is known as a pseudo-cereal. While many people think that buckwheat is a cereal grain, it is actually a highly nutritious fruit seed that is related to rhubarb and sorrel. It is often confused with being a grain because of the grain-like way it is cooked and used. The fact that the word “wheat” is in its name only adds to the confusion.
Buckwheat is a suitable substitute for grains for people who are sensitive to wheat or other grains that contain gluten, but may not be considered “Paleo.” It can be ground into flour and used in many different ways. Buckwheat is high in the flavonoids rutin and quercetin, and is a good source of magnesium, manganese, copper and fiber. The protein in buckwheat is a high quality protein, containing all eight essential amino acids, including lysine.https://www.smallfootprintfami...
