4 Health Benefits of Sprouted Almonds
1) Easy to Digest: Sprouted almonds are easier to digest than regular nuts because the soaking process releases their enzyme inhibitors. Without these inhibitors, our body’s own enzymes are more effective at helping us absorb the nut’s nutrients.
2) Better Nutrient Absorption: Sprouting nuts can help to break down their phytic acid, which is an antinutrient that binds with minerals and prevents their absorption. Sprouting can also help remove enzyme inhibitors, which block digestive enzymes. This process improves digestion of the almonds.
3) Easy to Chew: Our sprouted almonds are softer than ordinary almonds, making them a great snack for kids or anyone that has difficulty chewing hard foods.
4) Perfect for Recipes: Since sprouted almonds are smoother and less stiff than unsoaked nuts, they are perfect for making almond milk or almond butter. They are easy for your food processor to grind up and produce the desired consistency for your recipe. Sprouted almonds also tend to be slightly sweeter and creamier which makes them a wonderful addition to raw desserts and other creations.

- The jars I use for sprouting are any sized mason jar usually 32 ounces in a 1-gallon mason jar.
- If you are not sugar-free you are welcome to use any preferred sweetener such as honey, or coconut sugar. I would start with using 1/4 cup & add more to taste.
