how to soak raw nutsNuts and seeds are great nutrient-dense snacks or additions to dishes, but they contain  phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors that can interfere with your ability to absorb nutrients. All plants contain phytic acid to some degree, but nuts and seeds, grains, and legumes typically contain the highest levels.

Soaking (and sprouting), nuts and seeds can help in reducing the action of the phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors and make the nutrients more available to your body.
