Gut Nuts - a happy accident that created the only fermented almonds in the world:

Our Chief Philosopher had found his sprouting almonds bubbling! Oh no…

Afraid they were ruined, instead they were super delicious! Well-balanced, savory, tangy, and umami flavors.

Think kombucha, sourdough, cheese, or yogurt - in almond form!

Fermentation gives them superpowers. Compared to raw almonds, Gut Nuts are:

-More nutritious (110% more B vitamins, 1,464% more phenols, 428% more flavonoids), bioavailable, and digestible.

-Lower in sugars (93% less), anti-nutrients (41% less phytic acid), allergens, toxins, and agricultural pollutants.

-higher in prebiotics, which fuel your gut’s probiotics.

-full of postbiotics, which optimize health, including lactic acid.

_______________________________________________________

We’re taking almonds where they’ve never been before by fermenting them into a savory and crispy snack nut! Introducing Gut Nuts™, the world’s first fermented and dehydrated almonds. 

Expect them to shatter when you bite into them, exploding tangy, savory, and umami flavors onto all the different flavor receptors across your tongue.

These are perfect for crunchy snacking in whole form, adding to salads, dicing into crusts, or ground into a meal for savory almond breads or muffins. Be sure to allow the almonds to touch all parts of your tongue to reach all your different flavor receptors!

In our patent-pending process, we ferment Regenerative Organic Certified® almonds to reach the perfect level of acidity.

Then, we dehydrate the almonds at the lowest possible temperature to dry them out, creating an extremely crunchy shelf-stable snack nut that pops in both flavor and texture.

THE FIFTH TASTE: Savory/umami is a key flavor in diet as one of the five basic tastes (sweet, salty, sour, bitter and savory/umami) that is not well represented in the American palate, especially in snacks, which are dominated by sweet and/or salty.

What are the health benefits of fermented almonds?

We've scientifically verified the below benefits in our products for the almonds before and after fermentation, via metabolomic analysis provided by Utah State University:

Less sugar:

-A 91% reduction in sucrose and 94% reduction in d-maltose 

More B vitamins:

-714% increase in Vitamin B1

This vitamin plays a critical role in energy metabolism and the growth, development, and function of cells. Helps prevent complications in the nervous system, brain, muscles, heart, stomach, and intestines.

-119% increase in Vitamin B5 

Essential nutrient and anti-oxidant. Acts as co-factor for hormone production and red blood cells, and plays a role in glucose and lipid metabolism.

-466% increase in Vitamin B9

Folate (vitamin B-9) is important in red blood cell formation and for healthy cell growth and function. The nutrient is crucial during early pregnancy to reduce the risk of birth defects of the brain and spine.

More Phytochemicals:

-179% increase in total phytochemicals

More Phenols:

-1,464% increase in total phenols 

Syringic acid is a naturally occurring phenolic compound and dimethoxybenzene that is commonly found as a plant metabolite and one type of phenol that our process increases. Syringic acid is studied for anti-obesity, anti-inflammatory and anti-steatotic effects via the regulation of lipid metabolic and inflammatory genes.

More Flavonoids:

Flavonoids are a class of polyphenolic secondary metabolites found in plants, and thus commonly consumed in the diets of humans. These compounds are believed to have anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and intakes are associated with a potential decreased risk of chronic disease.

-428% increase in total flavonoids

More Quinic Acids and Quercetins:

-49% more total Quinic Acids

Caffeoylquinic acids (CQAs) are specialized plant metabolites and one type of quinic acid that our process increases. CQAs are considered beneficial for human health, mainly due to their potential anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

More Catechins:

Catechins are a type of secondary metabolite providing antioxidant roles. Catechin and epicatechins are the most common forms. These compounds have been studied for their effects on blood flow regulation, especially as it relates to their intakes from green tea

-40% more Total Catechins

More Minerals:

        Mineral                                                           Increase

Cr = Chromium
33%
Fe = Iron
10%
Mo = Molybdenum
24%
Si = Silica
402%
Sr = Strontium
15%

Fewer anti-nutrients:

-A 41% reduction in phytic acid with fermentation

Phytic acid is the major storage form of phosphorus in cereals, legumes, oil seeds and nuts. Phytic acid is known as a food inhibitor which chelates micronutrients and reduces their bioavailability.

-A 28% reduction in oxalic acid with fermentation  

Oxalate is a naturally occurring molecule found in abundance in plants and humans. We eat them in food and our bodies make them as well. Oxalates bind to calcium as they leave the body.

What does it mean to be a postbiotic snack?

These snacks are considered postbiotic: “inanimate microorganisms and/or their components that confer a health benefit on the host.” 

The positive gut health benefits of this product are postbiotic in nature, rather than probiotic, as dehydration, even at low temperatures, kills off all living organisms. It’s how we achieve shelf stability!

REVIEWS:

"These are the best almonds I have ever tasted." - Whitney

"These are going to revolutionize the world." - Tobi

"I LOVE the Gut Nuts!! Like head over heels. The flavor and the texture are a 10. I really think you've got an amazing product. I would love to help you blow them up! I'm eating your nuts right now I can't stop. They're addictive!" - Kathryn Lukas, founder of Farmhouse Culture
