Elevate Your Health with Organic Activated Cashews

January 24, 2024 Honest to Goodness

If you’re eager to nourish your body with cleaner, whole foods this year, organic activated cashews should be a regular on your shopping list. Here are a few of the health benefits of these nutritional powerhouses:

    

Organic Activated Cashews

ENHANCED NUTRIENT ABSORPTION

Cashews are tree nuts rich in iron, magnesium, selenium, zinc, and copper. Activating cashews helps unlock their nutrient potential by reducing enzyme inhibitors and phytic acid, making nutrients more bioavailable and easily digestible.


RICH IN HEALTHY FATS

Cashews are abundant in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. These fats play a crucial role in supporting cardiovascular health by helping to regulate cholesterol levels. According to Better Health Victoria, including nuts as part of a healthy diet can help regulate weight and protect against chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. So, including activated cashews in your diet can contribute to heart wellness.

SOURCE OF ESSENTIAL MINERALS

Activated cashews are a great source of essential minerals, including magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc. Magnesium is crucial for muscle and nerve function, while phosphorus supports bone health. Zinc, on the other hand, plays a pivotal role in immune system function and wound healing. Adding just 30 grams of activated cashews into your daily diet can contribute to meeting your daily mineral requirements.

GUT FRIENDLY GOODNESS

Eating raw cashews can cause sensitivities (such as pain and bloating in the gut) for individuals who find the phytates found in cashews difficult to tolerate. Activating cashews helps reduce the phytic acid content, making them gentler on the digestive system.

PROTEIN POWERHOUSE

Protein is essential for muscle repair, growth, and overall cellular function. Activated cashews deliver 5.1 g of protein per 30 g serve, making them a valuable addition to a plant-based or balanced diet. Enjoy your activated cashews on their own as a healthy snack or add them to stir-fry’s, in baking, or blitz them and use them in salad dressing, to help meet your daily protein intake.


MOOD-BOOSTING NUTRIENTS

We all love feel-good foods and activated cashews can help boost those happy hormones. Of all the nuts, cashews, almonds, and pistachios contain the highest levels of tryptophan, an essential amino acid and precursor to serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood. The magnesium in cashews also plays a role in promoting relaxation and reducing stress. So, enjoy activated cashews to boost your mood!

VERSATILITY IN THE KITCHEN

Activated cashews not only offer many health benefits, they also deliver a creamy texture and nutty flavour to a variety of dishes. From savoury sauces and dips to dairy-free desserts and nut butters, their versatility makes them a favourite among culinary enthusiasts seeking nutritious alternatives in their recipes.


WHAT IS ACTIVATION?

Two decades ago, 2die4 Live Foods business in Byron Bay NSW, became the world’s first activated nut brand. They have perfected the process of slow soaking and dehydrating nuts to create a premium range. As in nature when rain saturates the soil, soaking nuts or seeds in saltwater starts the germination process. After soaking, the nuts are dehydrated using low temperatures to a ‘crunch state’ to preserve the activated nutrient profile and unique texture and flavour.
