Sprouting is the process of germinating seeds and nuts to be eaten raw or cooked. When almonds are sprouted, it enlivens the enzymes that are dormant within. These enzymes activate when they come in contact with water. When sprouted, the potential growth for each nut is to become a tree. When we eat sprouted almonds, our bodies receive this concentrated nutrition. Even more importantly, sprouting neutralizes the enzyme inhibitors present in the nut allowing quicker and more complete digestion and absorption of nutrients. With a small amount of salt and packed with nutrition, these are the perfect on-the-go snack.
Almonds have a long history, going all the way back to 1400 BC. Almond trees originated in the Middle East, but today are widely grown in California. In fact, they are California's top agricultural export and largest tree nut crop in total dollar value and acreage. They also rank as the largest U.S. specialty crop export. Almonds are packed with nutrition making them the most popular of all the different types of nuts. They are high in protein at 6 grams per ounce, high in fiber at 4 grams per ounce and are an excellent source of other vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium and potassium. Two decades of research have shown that almonds can help maintain a healthy heart and weight.
