Activated Organic Pistachio Butter (140g)

 

In Stock

Description

We source the best, truly raw, certified organic pistachios, which are long-soaked and slowly dried in the usual Raw Ecstasy way. The perfectly activated pistachios are then gently cold-processed in a granite stone grinder, very similar to the ways in which ancient indigenous cultures around the world have ground nuts, grain and seeds for millennia. The result is the smoothest, lightest and most luxuriously rawsome nut butter 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.
