These nuts and seeds have been soaked in purified water, then slowly dried, so as to preserve the temperature-sensitive enzymes that aid digestion and nutritional assimilation. This process is called "sprouting". It provides a crunchy texture, and it brings out the best of the flavor, while still being considered "raw".
Eating raw food is a great way to maintain weight and blood sugar levels. It also helps to reduce allergies, as eating cooked and processed food can encourage a weakened immune system.
