Longhurst Farms Sprouted Raw Almond Butter, 16 oz.
Sprouted Raw Almond Butter has changed their name to Longhurst Farms! An awesome and fun "food" to build your health. Enjoy on celery, with your favorite dark chocolate, or dare I mention with fruit spread to create a super sandwich for the kids. Well, big kids too. Just use a sprouted whole grain bread if you can.
Raw sprouted almonds are a nutritional powerhouse. Just 1 oz. provides:
- 6 grams of protein
- 11 grams of fat, mostly mono unsaturated
- 3.5 grams of fiber
- 200 mg potassium
- 76 mg magnesium
- 75 mg calcium
- 7 mg vitamin E
- 1.4 mg of Resveratrol (amount equivalent to 3 glasses of red wine)
And all of this good nutrition will be more readily available to our bodies due to the sprouting process and reduced anti-nutrients like phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors.
Ingredients: Sprouted Almonds™ (whole, raw almonds, non-iodized salt)
Packed in recyclable #1 PETE plastic jar. Can be stored at room temperature. You may also refrigerate to reduce natural oil separation.
Please note that these are US grown almonds. By law, domestic almonds must be "pasteurized" in order to be sold in retail channels. To retain the raw state of the almonds and to comply with the law, the best option was and still is gas pasteurization. The good news is that this process leaves no detectable residue after the almonds undergo the soaking and sprouting process. So please be assured that this nut butter is truly a health building food despite the absurd pasteurization requirements for domestically grown almonds.
Made in a peanut free facility.
