Enzymatically Speaking, these Butters are Nuts!
Feel free to indulge even more.
1. Less Acidic
Our raw nut butters are carefully processed and our Almond Butter is even soaked and sprouted, which makes them less acidic by nature. All cooked foods, especially roasted nuts and oils, are highly acidic to the body. They can contribute to inflammation and even be hard to digest because they’re more acidic. Nuts and seeds contain delicate oils and fats that should optimally never be heated.
2. Easier to Digest
Because our raw nut butters are soaked and sprouted before processing, they’re much easier to digest too. All raw foods enhance enzyme production in the body that helps digest our food, while cooked food actually depletes these enzymes.
3. Milder in Taste
Most raw nut butters are much milder in taste. We find this preferable since they’re slightly sweeter and pair well with other foods much better without being overwhelmingly strong in taste. Our raw sprouted almond butter and cashew butter are two great examples of raw nut butters that taste a bit sweeter than roasted varieties.
4. Less Ingredients
Look at the ingredients on most roasted nut butters. You’ll likely see some type of oil - usually palm oil, along with salt and some type of sugar like evaporated cane syrup or juice, evaporated cane sugar, or coconut sugar. The less ingredients in your nut butter, the better. Think about it - you wouldn’t eat a handful of almonds and add oils, salt, and sugar to them, would you? Then why choose nut butter that have the added ingredients in them? Our raw nut butters contain just the nuts and a sprinkle of Himalayan Sea Salt, which is the only ingredients they should contain since they’re already so calorie dense.
5. Less Likely to Cause Weight Gain
While all nut butters can cause you to gain weight if you overeat them, raw varieties in small servings are less likely to cause weight gain than roasted ones will. Raw foods are much more friendly to the metabolism since they can be used for immediate energy and don’t require as much digestion as cooked foods.
6. Higher Quality
Quality nut butters are not made by companies like Jif and Skippy. Even more "natural" companies like Justin’s use additional salt and sugar in their nut butters. Our Nut Butters are the highest quality you will find on the market.
7. Less Addictive
Foods that combine sugar, salt, and fat in one product are extremely addicting and can trigger overeating. Since most roasted nut butters have added salt, sugar, and fat from some type of source, they’re very easy to overdo. Our raw nut butters contain just the nuts themselves and a tiny amount of mineral-rich salt, so you will not be as likely to keep eating them when you’ve had enough.
