The benefits of sprouting nuts and seeds

October 29, 2017

Mother Nature has done a great job of building in protective systems for nuts and seeds. She gave them shells, to protect them from the elements, pests and birds, and a protective coating called Phytic Acid.  Phytic Acid does a super job of keeping nuts and seeds safe until they can germinate. Nuts and seeds however, are often harvested before they have a chance to germinate.

As we enjoy them Phytic Acid is still trying to do its job. This protection prohibits our bodies from being able to fully utilize all the wonderful nutrients and enzymes in the nuts and seeds. Phytic acid can also irritate the lining of our stomachs and bowels.  At Lark Ellen Farm, we soak our organic nuts and seeds to break down these acids for you! So that when you eat our yummy, crunchy granola bites you get the full nutrients and enzymes from the nut and seeds.   Most granolas on the market today are baked at a high temperature.  This is the fastest way to mass produce large quantities of granola. However, this also kills most of the amazing nutrients and enzymes in the nuts and seeds.

At Lark Ellen Farm, we gently blow warm air over our granola at a very low temperature for a long period of time.  This delivers a crunchy product that is remains full of nutrients and enzymes.
