Once upon a time there were two friends. They both shared a passion for healthy food and foods that nourish body, mind and soul in equal measure. One of them lived in Australia and experimented passionately with sourdoughs and fermentation. The other had been enthusiastically studying macrobiotics when life brought him to Germany to find the woman of his life, to whom he happily married. It was a matter of honor to introduce this woman to the friend far away!
Happy about the reunion, he said: "My wedding gift for you is a sample of my latest invention: activated nuts. You see, I have dedicated myself to finding the most delicious and healthiest nut. The key is to trigger the germination process, which you stop again at a certain point. It unfolds true magic in the nut and happens in two phases. I call them: Activation. In the first stage, slow soaking cleanses the nut of bitter substances. In combination with subsequent gentle drying, the nuts then make their nutrients more available. The best thing about it: they are not only crunchier and more delicious, but above all more digestible! I am still at the very beginning of understanding this process. But I already have a name for it: ACTIVATED NUTS - TO DIE FOR!' "
Curious, the couple grabbed it - not realizing that this taste would change their lives. For the crunchy bite and incomparable taste were like a revelation.
The dream of the perfect nut was born!
Equipped with the basic knowledge of activation, the couple returned to Europe. With great enthusiasm, they immediately set to work perfecting their friend's pioneering work. Together with their wild little son, they set out to find the best raw material: the most exquisite nuts in the world. They played tag among pecan and Brazil nut trees and read fairy tales in the shade of ancient walnut trees. And when the best kernels were found, the work in the experimental kitchen began: for months they stirred spring water and sea salt for the perfect brine; they meticulously searched for the best ovens and tinkered uncompromisingly with optimal temperature sequences and the ideal duration for the gentlest drying.
And one day, all the knowledge they had gained about chemical, physical and natural nut laws came together like puzzle pieces and they found what they had been looking for since the tasting: the perfect activation for the ultimate crunchy, intense and pure nut taste!
Quickly, the incomparable delicacies were the talk of the town among families and friends. So, as nut activists, why not bring this dream to the feet of the entire world?
