Crispy Almonds

The process of germination not only produces vitamin C but also changes the composition of grains and seeds in numerous beneficial ways. Sprouting increses vitamin B content, especially B2, B5, and B6. Carotene increases dramatically – sometimes eight fold. Even more important, sprouting neutralizes phytic acid, a substance present in the bran of all grains that inhibit absorbtion of calcium,magnesium, iron, copper and zinc.” – Sally Fallon
