1. What is the allergy information for your products and facility?
None of my products contain gluten, soy, dairy, peanuts, eggs, or grains, and are all non-GMO. All ingredients are certified 100% organic EXCEPT for the Texas Pecans. All products are 100% Vegan EXCEPT the WOW! Bites and French Toast Pecan Butter as they contain raw honey.
2. What process do your nuts and seeds go through?
All nuts and seeds are pre-soaked in a mixture of Celtic Salt and filtered water for an average of 8-12 hours. They are then dehydrated at 115 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 72 hours in order to achieve a dry, crisp texture while maintaining their live enzymes (raw). Visit the About page for more information.
3. What is Sprouting and Pre-Soaking and is there a difference?
The Sprouting/Pre-Soaking process is described in detail in this blog post and the About Page. Both are descriptions of the same process used when working with nuts and seeds. There are slight differences, which can be described in the above blog link, but there are no literal sprouts on any of the nuts and seeds.
4. Where do you source your ingredients?
Almonds: Spain; Walnuts: Chile; Pecans: Texas, USA; Brazil Nuts: Bolivia and Peru; Cashews: Vietnam, Pumpkin Seeds: China; Sunflower Seeds: USA
5. Will you be carrying any other nuts and seeds than currently offered?
Yes! For 2018 I have added organic, sprouted Cashews. I am also looking into carrying organic sprouted macadamia nuts possibly by mid/late 2018.
6. I came across a very bitter almond. What's that from and is it safe to eat?
My unpasteurized, sprouted, organic Spanish almonds have a bitterness rating of 0.5%. Basically, 1 in every 200 almonds can be bitter and it is from a naturally occuring compound in almonds. While the bitterness can be very extreme and unpleasant they are not toxic or harmful to eat.
7. What are your shipping options?
Currently, I offer FedEX Home Delivery. Home Delivery takes 2-3 business days and IS insured up to $100 if lost or damaged. All orders of $200 or more will be shipped for free and orders between $150-199 will ship for a flat rate of $10.
8. Do you offer any discounts or promotions?
Yes! Any sales and discounts are advertised on the home page as well as on our facebook page. Additionally, lower shipping rates and free shipping rates will be available depending on value of order.
9. Do you ship internationally or accept international credit cards?
Due to the raw nature of my products I currently do not offer international shipping as I cannot guarantee the quality of the product en route to a destination outside of the United States. I also do not currently accept international credit cards due to security risks.
10. What is the shelf-life of your products and how should I store them?
All sprouted nuts and seeds have a "Best By" date on their package, which is the guaranteed freshness date when kept in an air-tight container and at room-temperature. The shelfl-life is extended anywhere up 12 months if refrigerated or freezer. All products should be kept in their original air-tight containers or moved to an air-tight container upon arrival. The sprouted nut butters are guaranteed for two months at room temperature and the WOW! Bites are guaranteed for two months if kept refrigerated.
