Food to Nourish was co-founded in early 2013 by Nutritionist Danielle Minnebo. The company combines wholefood ingredients with heaps of integrity and passion, to produce mind-tinglingy good nut butters and other delicious snacks, like their range of bliss balls including Luscious Lemon Bliss Ball and Wow Cacao Bliss Ball.
Here comes the technical bit…
Activation is basically the germination or sprouting of nuts and seeds. The sprouting process is triggered by soaking the nuts in water, apple cider vinegar and salt for 6-18 hours. The nuts are then drained and dried at low temperatures – below 70°C – for up to 48 hours. This protects the heat sensitive oil content of the nuts, preventing the oil from going rancid which is what occurs when they are roasted at high temperatures.
Best of all, activation results in a nut that leaves its roasted counterpart eating dust! After activation, not only is the nut much crunchier in texture but it is alive, which makes it easier to digest and therefore not at all taxing on the body. It also blends up into the most deliciously thick nut butter.
