Are Activated Nuts Better for You?


Nuts are a great source of nutrition, with their high protein, essential fats, fibre, antioxidants and minerals. Did you know that they can also interfere with your digestive system and prevent you from absorbing nutrients?

Nuts naturally contain acids and enzyme inhibitors that help preserve the nut from sprouting and rotting.

What is Activation?

The activation of nuts is the process of soaking whole raw nuts in a solution of  water and salt. Activation stimulates the early germination and sprouting  process and helps release the Phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors.

Did you know that nuts double in size when they are activated?

Once the soaking process is complete, the nuts are dehydrated at a low temperature to preserve the nutrients and halt the sprouting process. 

The benefit of activated nuts is that they are easier to digest and are easier on the stomach.

At Pallet Wholefoods, we carefully source the freshest, tastiest whole raw nuts and seeds from local farmers and suppliers around Australia.  

The activated nuts must be dried at a low temperature to remove all moisture and retain valuable nutrients. This process can take up to 4 days, but we know when the nuts and seeds are ready, as they reward us with the perfect crunch! 

Our products are proudly gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, refined sugar-free and vegan.
