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

Our Chief Philosopher had found his sprouting cashews 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 cashew form!

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

-More nutritious, bioavailable, and digestible.

-Lower in sugars, anti-nutrients, allergens, toxins, and agricultural pollutants.

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

-full of postbiotics which optimize health, including lactic acid and short-chain fatty acids.


Building off the success of our Gut Nuts fermented almonds, we’re taking cashews where they’ve never been before by fermenting them into a savory snack nut! Introducing Gut Nuts™, the world’s first fermented and dehydrated cashews. 

In our patent-pending process, we ferment cashews to reach the perfect level of acidity. 

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

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

THE FIFTH TASTE: Savory/umami and sour are key flavors 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 cashews?

We've submitted them for scientific verification via metabolomic analysis provided by Utah State University. We can only speculate that they will be quite similar to these benefits for our Gut Nuts fermented almonds before and after fermentation.

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!




A low temperature, slow speed, ancient technology for food processing that avoids the oxidation and heavy metal contamination of modern high-speed metal food processors that make most commercially available nut butters.


Sprouted and soaked (for up to 12 hours) makes the almonds sweeter, more digestible, and more nutritious. Research shows that sprouting increases the polyphenol content of the almonds, boosting antioxidant activity.


Dehydrating preserves the enzymes, flavor, and nutrition of sprouted almonds, without generating the carcinogenic acrylamide that results from roasting, as most nut butters are and contain.
