What Are Sprouted Almonds?
If you’re after another healthy and yummy almond snack, give sprouted almonds a go! Sprouted almonds are packed with nutrients and easy to digest. Almonds are spouted by soaking them for 24 hours which allows them 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. The sprouted almonds are also left with A smooth, buttery flavour.
You can make these snacks days in advance and store them in a sealed plastic bag or canister and they will stay fresh until you are ready to eat them.
