STONE-GROUND: Here at v&v we make our nut butters using the “old world” approach of stone-grinding, which applies even, powerful pressure with smooth granite wheels. Six hours of grinding results in the preservation of both flavour and nutrients that you just can’t get with the heavy duty metal blades that your typical nut butter companies use.
ACTIVATING is one of the most fascinating natural phenomena. It enlivens the enzymes that are dormant within, thus letting the nut or seed “awaken”. The potential growth for each nut is to become a tree, and when we eat activated our bodies receive this concentrated vital energy and nutrition. more importantly, activating neutralizes enzyme inhibitors present in the nut, allowing quicker and more complete digestion and assimilation of nutrients.
Hazelnuts: It seems that eating hazelnuts, and other tree nuts, can reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease. This is probably due to their impressive store of monounsaturated fat, vitamin E, and minerals, such as copper and magnesium, all of which reduce blood pressure and inflammation. Hazelnuts are full of oil, but there’s no evidence they are fattening. Quite the contrary: people on nut-rich diets often show weight loss. An explanation for this is that eating nuts stimulates the metabolism and makes you burn more calories. Another is that the high fat, protein, and fibre composition of nuts gives them the “fullness factor” in spades, so when we eat them, we are left feeling satisfied, not tempted to stuff our faces with less healthy foods.
