Why should you make your own nut butters?
First, nut butters on the market today are usually blended with additives: evaporated cane juice, processed sugars, cheap vegetable oils, and refined salts. Second, most of the almond butters that you find are made from roasted or dry roasted almonds. Commercially roasted nuts are flash-fried in cheap, rancid oils, while dry roasted nuts are exposed to exceedingly high temperatures that denature the nutrients and cause the breakdown of fats, increasing free radical capacity. Third, nut butters are usually made from broken pieces that are not suitable for selling, and are higher in fungus since there is more open surface area on broken nuts.
If you are lucky enough to find a jar that is made from “raw nuts” this is better, but it skips out on the crucial step of soaking nuts to increase digestibility. Raw, unsoaked nuts have high levels of phytic acid, a form of bound phosphorous, which serves as a physiological protectant and antioxidant for the plant. Phytates (or enzyme inhibitors) can directly affect the gastrointestinal tract, causing irritation and contributing to the potential for nutrient deficiencies.
This course is loaded with videos of recipe demonstrations, and printable recipes. You will not only learn how to make your own nut butter but how to prepare your nuts and seeds by soaking and dehydrating them.
