Activated Organic Chocolate Hazelnut Spread (140g)

 

In Stock

Description

We source the best, truly raw, certified organic hazelnuts, which are long-soaked and slowly dried in the usual Raw Ecstasy way. The perfectly activated hazelnuts are then gently cold-processed in a granite stone grinder until they are at their smoothest potential. Then we add our delicious gourmet Criollo Raw Chocolate. Our process is very similar to the way indigenous people from around the world have ground nuts and grains for thousands of years. In this way we achieve the smoothest, lightest and most luxuriously rawsome activated chocolate spread imaginable!

Raw Ecstasy source the best quality organic seeds which to activate they long-soak in vortex revitalized water and gently dehydrate at temperatures beow 47°c. Then they use a granite stonegrinder to cold process whilst preserving nutrients and flavour. The whole process takes about a week! Raw Ecstasy really go that extra mile taking no short cuts to create the best spreads.

Why Activated?

Activated nuts are effectively fermented, germinated or sprouted nuts. In nature nuts experience being soaked in rainwater which triggers their germination process. The dormant nuts awakens with enough power to create a whole tree! Nature’s defence mechanism for nuts and grains includes nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances (found for example as the bitter aftertaste of walnuts) that can be naturally removed by soaking. These toxic substances include enzyme inhibitors, phytates (phytic acid), polyphenols (tannins) and goitrogens. Soaking nuts in warm water will neutralize these enzyme inhibitors and also encourage the production of beneficial enzymes. In turn these enzymes can increase vitamins, especially B vitamins. Inspired by nature and the ancient Aztec practice of soaking nuts in seawater, we long-soak nuts in a natural solution. Then we slowly dehydrate the nuts at below 47 °c ensuring gentle preservation of the nutrients and a crunchy texture. Activated nuts are remarkably less bitter, taste sweeter, deliciously more-ish and feel lighter in your digestive system.
