The Living Nutz" company began in 2002 with a core purpose, to create the best tasting Certified Organic raw food gourmet treats on the planet! Our approach is simple, we wanted to make an easy to digest organic treat with the most amazing tastes that exist today! We believe in minimally processed and raw foods. That is why we do not roast our nuts. Roasting nuts changes the healthy oils into unhealthy oils and will cause a breakdown of their fats and the production of free radicals.
But before we even dry the nuts, we soak them for several hours, or overnight. Why? The main reason is because nuts and seeds contain enzyme inhibitors. The purpose of these enzyme inhibitors is to protect the nut or seed until it has what it needs for growing.
By soaking nuts and seeds, you release these toxic enzyme inhibitors AND increase the life and vitality contained within them, and making them easier to digest

But wait....... After we soak the nuts, we marinate them in our different flavors while we gently dehydrate them at low temperatures.
So there you have it. It's a long process over several days, where roasting would take only 10-15 minutes. Why go through all this? Well, as we said before- we do believe in raw and minimally processed ~ that's why we are known as LIVINGNUTZ!
ALL OUR NUT PRODUCTS ARE CERTIFIED ORGANIC by MOFGA
