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

One day, I found that our sprouting cashews were accidentally fermenting. 

Smelling an inviting sourdough aroma, I followed my gut and tasted them. Probiotics had generated delicious savory, tangy, and umami flavors! 

Crunchier than raw cashews, they’re fantastic by the handful, on your charcuterie board, or in your trail mix.

Fermented cashews have superpowers beyond their craveable taste and crunchy texture. Enjoy my creation!

-Tim, Chief Philosopher.

Ingredients:

Fermented Organic Cashews (Ancient Seabed Salt, Probiotic Cultures*)

Contains: Tree nuts (Cashews).

*Select strains of non-GMO, vegan, and dairy-free cultures.

Refrigeration not necessary or recommended. When unopened, shelf stable for at least 24 months from date of production stamped on package. Store in an airtight container in a cool dark place.

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.

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 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!

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.

TASTE THE DIFFERENCE

Stoneground

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

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.

Dehydrated

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.
