A Fresher, Healthier Way to Snack

sprouted raw almondsNew from Tropical Foods, come Sprouted Almonds. The sprouting process, involving soaking the nuts for 24 hours, unlocks the true nutritional potential of the almonds by activating enzymes and removing indigestible “anti-nutrients”. Sprouting reduces fat content and enhances the flavor and nutritional values. The sprouted, raw almonds are more digestible, crunchier, sweeter and lighter with a delicious fresh taste. Part of the raw food movement, Sprouted Almonds are the perfect healthy snack food. Tropical Foods Spouted Almonds will be available soon for purchase.

Tropical Foods Raw Nuts and FoodsRaw Nuts and Seeds Growing in Popularity

The raw food movement has gained momentum over the past few years as consumers are seeking out pure, fresh foods that promote a healthier lifestyle. Hartman Group, a leader in food and beverage insights, deduced through research that consumers view raw eating as being based on whole foods that are unprocessed. Consumers are less inclined to view raw as associated with a brand but more about the ultimate freshness of the food, Hartman Group concluded.  With health issues plaguing our country, many people have transformed their lives by adopting a raw food lifestyle.  Since it is low in fat content, most of the food is converted into energy, helping in weight loss and detoxification. As the toxins are flushed out of the body, the skin appears healthier and possibly younger.

Some choose to eat a 100% raw food diet, while others deem it practical to consume raw food at a more moderate level , according to a Healthy Times article. Raw nuts and seeds are the perfect snack food for a moderate level raw food diet. With healthy fats, fiber, and many vitamins and minerals, nuts pack a powerful nutritional punch in a snack size package. Popular raw nuts and seeds include almonds, pumpkin seeds, pecans, pistachios, cashews, sesame seeds and walnuts.
