Nuts and seeds can contain substances that interfere with the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. By soaking them, reducing their anti-nutrient (phytic acid) content and making easier to digest and improving their nutrition. Soaking also activates enzymes which initiate the nuts and seeds digesting themselves before you at them, saving your body some additional effort.
To soak nuts or seeds, place them in a bowl filled with water and leave overnight, at room temperature. The next day, you can drain and spread them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place in the oven (130-150 F/55-65 C) or in a dehydrator for 12-24 hours, turning occasionally, until completely dry.
If this sounds like more hassle than you are prepared to deal with, then don’t bother, it’s not a huge issue, just choose quality organic nuts and enjoy them.
