The almonds are soaking. The bars are being born.
Why are we NUTTY over Raw almonds?
The answer is simple; they are extremely good for us! All almonds start off as a good source of fiber, protein, and monounsaturated fats which help lower LDL AKA bad cholesterol. Almonds contain calcium, vitamin E, minerals, folic acid, and iron.
All nuts, raw or roasted, supply these benefits but what’s the point of these nutrients if the body isn’t actually receiving them? Studies show that raw almonds contain many enzymes that are lost once roasted, enzymes that the body needs and craves. Raw nuts preserve all their natural enzymes and nutrients. The high temperatures used when roasting nuts causes most nutrients to diminish and some even get lost completely. In order for the body to actually receive these enzymes and all the nutrients from almonds, the nuts need to be unprocessed and raw.
• Clinical studies show that almond intake helps lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.
• We soak our almonds to ensure increased enzyme activity and greater absorption of the nutrients by the body allowing for increased digestibility.
