Why is soaking and dehydrating nuts and seeds important?
As-is, nuts and seeds contain enzyme inhibitors. Enzymes are unstable, so they are locked up in the seed until they are needed. When are they needed? At germination and then as the plant grows.
An easy way to understand is to know soaking makes these foods much easier to digest. Here is why, when we pre-soak nuts and seeds, basically the water tells the seed to soften up and get ready to grow, which makes the enzyme inhibitors go away and then the seed or nut enzymes are free to use.
The next step is to dehydrate, it not only helps to return them to their enjoyable crispy state, but ibecause it is done below 115 degrees Fahrenheit, the nuts and seed will be raw as well, and also rich with enzymes!
2 types of enzymes are at play here — digestive and metabolic. The human body cannot create a limitless supply of either type of enzymes. It’s best to eat foods rich in digestive enzymes to reduce the burden on the body, and also free it up to make more metabolic enzymes — which run the systems of our body.
Pre-soaked and dehydrated organic raw nuts and seeds are excellent sources of digestive enzymes!
In the book Enzyme Nutrition, Dr. Howell claims that when the body is too busy making digestive enzymes (that we could be getting from food) to make enough metabolic enzymes, we tend toward modern diseases.
