2 Die 4 Live Foods – “Apparently humans can’t digest raw seeds (and nuts are seeds). This information, which came on the packet of stunningly delicious fermented nuts, came as a surprise to me. I’m wondering why I don’t rattle. Not to mention feeling foolish for all those nuts (some were roasted, which is apparently worse) that I’ve eaten in my lifetime. But if fermented nuts, which are so superior for my health, taste like the ones from the Byron Bay company 2die4 Live Foods, I’m a convert. The range, which includes almonds, pecans, walnuts, brazil nuts and pepitas from Australia and overseas, are either pesticide-free, organic or both. They are pre-soaked in water, whey and salt, then dehydrated back to “crunch state”, without killing the “activated, cultured life”, making them tastier and easier to digest.” Leanne Tolra www.2die4livefoods.com.au
