Activated Almonds are dipped in unctuous raw chocolate before being dusted with soft raw cacao powder.
Nature has contrived so that the nut may survive (insects, microbes, animal predators, etc.) until proper growing conditions are present. Nature's defence mechanism for nuts and grains includes nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances such as enzyme inhibitors, phytates and tannins. These anti-nutrients are what cause that bitter after-taste in the common walnut. However these toxins can be naturally removed by soaking!
In nature, rainfall soaks the nut, grain or seed prompting the germination process to take place. Raw Ecstasy mimics nature by long-soaking almonds and walnuts in Himalayan Crystal salt. This process helps activate the enzymes that deactivate the enzyme inhibitors. The method imitates how the native people in Central America, such as the Aztecs, treated their nuts and seeds by soaking them in seawater and then dehydrating them in the sun.
Long soaking nuts in a natural saline solution encourages the production of beneficial enzymes. In turn, these enzymes increase many vitamins, especially B vitamins. Activated Nuts are much easier to digest and the nutrients will be more easily absorbed. Activated Nuts are noticeably lighter, tastier, more nourishing, free of bitterness and markedly more-ish!
