  • Soaking nuts, seeds and grains allows enzyme inhibitors to be released, making them easier to digest and enhances nutrient bio-availability. Soaking them also makes them easier to blend and results in a creamy consistency that is like milk. Most nuts generally require 7 - 12 hours or overnight of soaking time for optimal results. Discard the soaking water and thoroughly rinse with fresh water.
