Raw Activated Nuts

!


What are activated nuts?
An activated nut is a nut that has been soaked and sprouted to release its enzyme inhibitors.

Why should nuts be activated?
Enzyme inhibitors prevent nuts from sprouting at inappropriate times. This is an evolutionary mechanism that ensures nuts only sprout when environmental conditions will support the growth of young plants. Phytic acid and oxalic acid are examples of enzyme inhibitors, and are found in varying ratios depending on the nut.Of the four seasons, springtime is when we see nature come to life. Environmental conditions support the germination of seeds into seedlings. Rainfall is responsible for deactivating the enzyme inhibitors, which when coupled moderate spring temperatures supports the growth of freshly germinated seedlings into young plants.

These enzyme inhibitors also prevent the nuts from being over eaten by animals in the wild. In humans' regular consumption of nuts with enzyme inhibitors, can result in digestive distress in much the same way gluten does. Constipation, stomach cramps and bloating are examples of some issues people have eating raw, unactivated nuts. This is why nut activation is an important process.

How do we activate our nuts?
First, Loving Earth selects quality organic nuts. An activated nut is essentially a germinated nut. The activation process requires nuts to be soaked in water for a period of 12-24 hours depending on the nut variety. This deactivates the enzyme inhibitors and brings the nut to life. Once our nuts have been soaked, we then dehydrate them at low temperatures (40 degrees) over a 24-hour period. Dehydrated nuts have a similar flavour and texture to roasted nuts, however are much more nutrient dense and taste much fresher. Activating nuts makes the nutrients more digestible and easier to assimilate, they also taste delicious!

Salted activated nuts?
People tend to associate salt consumption with poor health. Loving Earth's salted nuts are soaked in premium quality Himalayan crystal salt. Standard table salt is overly processed and has little nutritional value. Himalayan crystal salt however, has up to 84 trace minerals that support the various functions of your body's systems. Crystal salt comes from the earth and is a natural state product.

Proponents of crystal salt often talk about the life force or the bio-photon energetic properties of salt. This relates to the salt's crystalline structure and how it affects the energetic systems within our bodies.

Salted nuts are one of those moreish treats that most people enjoy eating. Now that activated, organic nuts flavored with Himalayan crystal salt are available, one taste is all it takes to get you hooked.

Raw Activated Walnuts

!

Walnuts are renowned for their fatty acid profile and high omega 3 content. They are also a significant source of protein and dietary fibre. Activated walnuts have a crisp, crunchy the texture making them a delectable treat!

Our Walnuts are harvested from the pristine forests around the Jinsixia National Park in China. This area is a 10,000-hectare reserve that has been certified organic by a European certification agency according to the USDA-NOP, EEC and JAS Organic standards. This certification also verifies that the wild harvesting is done in a sustainable way.

Health Benefits

Walnuts are reputed to be a source of antioxidants and ALA (alpha linoleic acid Ð omega 3). This is important as cellular health and metabolic processes rely on quality omega 3 fats for optimal function. Vegetarians and vegans are often deficient in this essential fat, which makes walnuts a good alternative for people who choose to avoid animal products. Studies into the benefits of omega 3 fatty acids have shown that regular consumption supports lowered blood platelette aggregation (thinner blood) reducing the risk and incidence of heart disease among study participants

In addition to heart health consumption of Omega 3's may help loose weight. Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to lower blood triglyceride levels (fat circulating in your blood) suggesting more efficient metabolism of other fats by our livers.  Consumption of walnuts has also been shown to lower cholesterol.

In addition to healthy fats, walnuts are a good source of protein, averaging about 17%. Walnuts are rich in the amino arginine. Arginine is responsible for vasodilation which supports efficient blood flow and arterial elasticity. In Chinese medicine walnuts are considered to be a kidney tonic. They are reputed to be beneficial for the brain, skin and digestive system.
