Nuts and seeds have high enzyme inhibitors and phytic acid on their outer layers which naturally protects them. When we then eat them, the phytic acid can bind with calcium, copper, magnesium and zinc and prevent them from being absorbed. In nature, when the nut or seed matures and they get wet, germination can proceed. When this happens nature takes over and naturally breaks down these enzymes so that the germination can take place and another plant will grow.
When we soak them first, mimicking nature, this process breaks down the enzymes and the phytic acid which allows for easier digestion. The nuts and seeds swell and it also intensifies the natural bacteria and vitamins especially B vitamins.
After the soaking process is completed, the nuts and seeds are dehydrated at low temperatures to complete the process. At this stage the nuts and seeds are super crunchy, nutritional and easy to digest.
The cashew nut tree, originated from Brazil's Amazon Rainforest and it was spread all over the world by Portuguese explores and is today, cultivated on a massive scale in Brazil, Vietnam, India, and many African countries. On the cashew tree, hanging from the branches, you will find a cashew apple, containing only one cashew nut, hanging like a clapper on a bell.
Cashews contain rich sources of essential minerals, manganese, copper, iron, potassium and zinc and especially selenium. Selenium is an important mineral for a healthy immune system and fertility in both men and women. A handful of cashew nuts a day in the diet would provide enough of these minerals and may help prevent deficiency diseases.
