Description: 

Our almonds come from small producers in Thessaly, a region in Central Greece and they are grown in a traditional way without any use of chemicals. (They are not certified organic)
They are about 1.5 times larger than the normal almond size and have a wild flavor. We have taken these almonds to the next level by sprouting them. 

Nuts are a fantastic reservoir of proteins, healthy fats, fiber, and important minerals such as zinc and magnesium. Yet, they also have a naturally occurring chemical known as phytic acid and some enzyme inhibitors which can interfere with body's absorption of certain nutrients. These enzyme inhibitors and phytic acid are absent in our activated almonds since they were removed through our soaking process. After the sprouting, we dehydrate the nuts for 24 hours at low temperature. This makes them easier to digest and assimilate and also enhances the full flavor of the nuts.

Suggested Uses: Almonds can be consumed in a raw state as a healthy snack. You may chopped them up and sprinkle on vegetables or served with cooked foods or finely chop them in a food processor and use it as a gluten-free crust for fried chicken. Or further grind them to make almond butter. They work as an amazing crust for raw snacks and you can throw a few pieces in your smoothie to create a creamy flavor (dairy replacement!).  Sprouted almonds have a pleasant light flavor with a wonderful crunch.

Almonds contain nutrients such as protein, magnesium and vitamin E. Also a great source of antioxidants. 

Ingredients: Raw Sprouted Almonds from Greece (Large)

Fodmap Information: 
Almonds have a red light in the Monash app, but if we click on it we can learn more. Monash notes that 20 almonds (24 grams) contain high amounts of GOS, but a smaller serving of 10 almonds (12 grams) is low FODMAP. Therefore almonds can be included in the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet, but it is important to limit almonds to maximum 10 per meal or snack.
