- WHAT IS THE ALLERGY INFORMATION FOR YOUR PRODUCTS AND FACILITY?
All of my products are guaranteed to be free of any gluten, soy, dairy, peanuts, eggs, or grains, and are all non-GMO. All ingredients are certified 100% organic. The Texas pecans are offered in certified organic and local, conventionally grown. All products are 100% Vegan EXCEPT the WOW! Bites and French Toast Pecan Butter as they contain local, raw honey.
- 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 10-14 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.
- WHAT IS SPROUTING VS 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 terms are used interchangeably when working with nuts and seeds. Technically speaking, nuts and seeds that have been soaked and dried are "pre-soaked", but most people are more familiar with the term "sprouted" which is why the terms are used interchangeably.
- WHERE DO YOU SOURCE YOUR INGREDIENTS?
Almonds: Spain; Walnuts: Chile and USA; Pecans: Texas, USA; Brazil Nuts: Bolivia and Peru; Cashews: Vietnam and Indonesia; Macadamia: Kenya; Pumpkin Seeds: China, Austria through Ukraine; Sunflower Seeds: USA
- I CAME ACROSS A VERY BITTER ALMOND. WHAT IS 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 occurring compound in almonds. While the bitterness can be very extreme and unpleasant they are not toxic or harmful to eat.
