It is often what is NOT in organic foods that really makes the difference to healthy food and we are proud of this fact.

We pre soak the nuts before roasting… WHY?

Raw nuts are one of natures most nutritious foods, though they must be properly prepared to gain all of the nutritious benefits within them.

Raw nuts contain high amounts of phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors (a.k.a. anti-nutrients). These anti-nutrients act as a defense system to the nuts to keep them from sprouting prematurely and can be harmful to our own digestive systems when eaten without first soaking the nuts.

The soaking of the raw nuts tricks the nut/seed into thinking that it is time to sprout. This neutralizes the enzyme inhibitors and phytic acid, making them easier to digest, increases vitamin/mineral absorption, and makes them even more tasty. See this article on phytic acid in nuts and/or Buy the Phytic Acid Paper at Rebuild Market.

Here are the raw ingredients highlighting
some of the nutritional benefits

Organic Peanuts

Health benefits of Peanuts

  • Peanuts are rich in energy and contain many health benefiting nutrients, minerals, antioxidants and vitamins that are essential for optimum health.
  • They are especially, rich in mono-unsaturated fatty acids like oleic acids that help to lower LDL or “bad cholesterol” and increase HDL or “good cholesterol”.
  • These nuts are good source of dietary protein compose fine quality amino acids that are essential for growth and development.
  • Peanuts are excellent source of resveratrol, another polyphenol antioxidant, which has been found to have protective function against cancers, heart disease,degenerative nerve disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and viral/fungal infections.
  • The nuts are an excellent source of vitamin E (a-tocopherol); containing about 8 g per 100 g. vitamin E is a powerful lipid soluble antioxidant which helps maintain the integrity of cell membrane of mucus membranes and skin by protecting from harmful oxygen free radicals.
  • The nuts are packed with many important B-complex groups of vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6, and folates. 100 g of peanuts provide about 85% of RDI of niacin, which contribute to brain health and blood flow to brain.
  • The nuts are rich source of minerals like copper, manganese, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and selenium.

Coconut Oil

Used in tropical cultures as a nutritious diet staple for many centuries, organic coconut oil can help:

Organic Almonds

Almonds are considered to have a higher nutritional density than other nuts–that is, they offer the greatest amount of nutrients per calorie. With every organic raw almond serving, you’re getting a hearty dose of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that includes:

– Dietary fibre
– Vitamin E
– Magnesium
– Calcium
– Monounsaturated fat, good for cholesterol
– Easy-to-digest protein

With all these essential assets, our bulk almonds are great for your heart, immune system, bones, teeth, digestive system and much more. A simple handful a day can be a major part of a whole-health approach.

Almonds’ monounsaturated fat can not only lower LDL or “bad” cholesterol, it can keep you full– really full–for a really long time. For this reason, almonds are promoted more frequently than other organic raw nuts as a powerful weight loss food. When it comes to a great tasting, nutrient-rich snack that makes it easier to avoid overeating, organic almonds have few rivals.

Organic Brazil Nuts

Also high in heart-healthy nutrients and minerals like copper, niacin, vitamin E, fibre, magnesium, and selenium, studies on Brazil nuts show that this protein-packed snack may aid in the prevention of breast cancer.

Beneficial Fats
Most of the fat found in Brazil nuts is the healthy unsaturated varieties which — when used in lieu of saturated fat — can help to promote heart health, says the American Heart Association. Of the 19 g of fat in 1 oz., 41 percent is monounsaturated and 34 percent is polyunsaturated. Keep in mind that Brazil nuts still contain the highest amount of saturated fat of any nut — one serving provides 21 percent of the RDA. Stick to just one serving of nuts daily to keep your daily calorie and fat intake under control.

Selenium
One ounce of Brazil nuts provides 774 percent of the daily recommended value of selenium. Selenium is a trace mineral essential to immune and thyroid function, explains the CIDPUSA Foundation which is dedicated to helping people who suffer from autoimmune disorders. While selenium deficiency does not often occur in Western countries, it may cause anxiety disorders, asthma, depression, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis and seizures.

Organic Honey

Ahh Honey and the many wonders of bees and their products.

Including organic honey in your daily nutrition can help combat multiple ailments including digestive problems, migraine headaches, morning sickness and muscle fatigue. There are many ways honey can be used nutritionally to benefit your health.

Energy Source
According to USDA , honey contains about 64 calories per tablespoon. Hence honey is also used by many as a source of energy. On the other hand, one tablespoon of sugar will give you about 15 calories. Further the carbohydrates in the honey can be easily converted into glucose by even the most sensitive stomachs. Hence it is very easy to digest honey.

Organic Sea Salt

Organic salt cannot be ‘organically grown’ because it is a mineral not a plant. When salt is certified organic the certification refers to the process of collection of sea salt.

The salt works must be located in a nature reserve, without risk of pollution to the water, the salt must be produced by hand, without purifying the salt or including any additives, and it must fulfil the high standards in chemical analysis. Packing procedures and facilities must comply with standards set by the organic certifiers.
