Raw Activated Nuts

  • Description
  • More Details

What are activated nuts?
An activated nut is a nut that has been soaked and sprouted to release its enzyme inhibitors.

Why should nuts be activated?
Enzyme inhibitors prevent nuts from sprouting at inappropriate times. This is an evolutionary mechanism that ensures nuts only sprout when environmental conditions will support the growth of young plants. Phytic acid and oxalic acid are examples of enzyme inhibitors, and are found in varying ratios depending on the nut.Of the four seasons, springtime is when we see nature come to life. Environmental conditions support the germination of seeds into seedlings. Rainfall is responsible for deactivating the enzyme inhibitors, which when coupled moderate spring temperatures supports the growth of freshly germinated seedlings into young plants.

These enzyme inhibitors also prevent the nuts from being over eaten by animals in the wild. In humans' regular consumption of nuts with enzyme inhibitors, can result in digestive distress in much the same way gluten does. Constipation, stomach cramps and bloating are examples of some issues people have eating raw, unactivated nuts. This is why nut activation is an important process.

How do we activate our nuts?
An activated nut is essentially a germinated nut. The activation process requires nuts to be soaked in water for a period of 12-24 hours depending on the nut variety. This deactivates the enzyme inhibitors and brings the nut to life. Once our nuts have been soaked, we then dehydrate them at low temperatures (40 degrees) over a 24-hour period. Dehydrated nuts have a similar flavour and texture to roasted nuts, however are much more nutrient dense and taste much fresher. Activating nuts makes the nutrients more digestible and easier to assimilate, they also taste delicious!

Health Benefits

Walnuts are reputed to be a source of antioxidants and ALA (alpha linoleic acid Ð omega 3). This is important as cellular health and metabolic processes rely on quality omega 3 fats for optimal function. Vegetarians and vegans are often deficient in this essential fat, which makes walnuts a good alternative for people who choose to avoid animal products. Studies into the benefits of omega 3 fatty acids have shown that regular consumption supports lowered blood platelette aggregation (thinner blood) reducing the risk and incidence of heart disease among study participants

In addition to heart health consumption of Omega 3's may help loose weight. Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to lower blood triglyceride levels (fat circulating in your blood) suggesting more efficient metabolism of other fats by our livers.  Consumption of walnuts has also been shown to lower cholesterol.

In addition to healthy fats, walnuts are a good source of protein, averaging about 17%. Walnuts are rich in the amino arginine. Arginine is responsible for vasodilation which supports efficient blood flow and arterial elasticity. In Chinese medicine walnuts are considered to be a kidney tonic. They are reputed to be beneficial for the brain, skin and digestive system.

Health Benefits

Almonds

Almonds are a good source of vitamin E, phosphorus and magnesium. Almonds naturally contain no Cholesterol, however are able to regulate cholesterol in our bodies by reducing LDL ('bad') cholesterol and increasing HDL ('good') cholesterol. The Ayurvedic system of medicine considers almonds to be both brain and nervous system supporting. Almonds have also been proven by various medical journals to have anti-inflammatory, immune boosting and liver supporting properties.

Brazil Nuts

Organic Raw Activated Brazil Nuts offers a good source of Omega 6, magnesium and is one of the highest dietary sources of selenium available.

Selenium is a rare mineral, which is incorporated into proteins to make selenoproteins, which are important antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of selenoproteins help prevent cellular damage from free radicals. Other selenoproteins help regulate thyroid function and play a role in the immune system. 

Cashews

Cashews have a lower fat content than other nuts and approximately 75% of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, with about 75% of this unsaturated fatty acid being oleic acid - the same heart-healthy monounsaturated fat found in olive oil. Studies show that oleic acid promotes good cardiovascular health. Studies of diabetic patients show that monounsaturated fat, when added to a low-fat diet, can help to reduce high triglyceride levels.

Coconut

Almost half of the Coconut’s fatty acid profile consists of lauric acid. Apart from being associated with anti-microbial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties, studies have found lauric acid increases good cholesterol in the body.

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds contain 13% fat, of which 64% is ALA (a-linolenic acid), also known as Omega 3, which is critical for our body to function at optimum levels. It cannot be synthesized by the human body but is vital for normal metabolism.

Health Benefits

Raw Cacao Nibs:

Antioxidants

Research has demonstrated that the antioxidants in cacao are highly stable and easily available to human metabolism. In the adjacent table you can see that our Raw Cacao has set the world record for antioxidants when compared to the other top 10 antioxidant foods such as Goji Berries, Acai Berries, and blueberries. The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale was developed by the United States Department of Agriculture to measure the ability of antioxidants to absorb free radicals, which normally cause cell and tissue damage. The higher the ORAC score, the higher the level of antioxidants present in the food. 

Evaporated Coconut Nectar:

Our Evaporated Coconut Nectar is unfiltered and preservative free. It has a low on the Glycemic Index (GI) of 35. By comparison, most honeys are GI 55 and cane sugars are GI 68.

The Glycemic Index provides a ranking for carbohydrates according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Foods with a low GI (less than 40), produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, avoiding the sugar “highs” and “lows” that we experience when consuming foods with high GIs.

 Evaporated Coconut Nectar also has a nutritional and mineral content that is richer than all other commercially available sweeteners. When compared to brown sugar, Evaporated Coconut Nectar has twice the iron, four times the magnesium and over 10 times the amount of zinc.

  • Description

Our range of Buckinis are made with buckwheat, nuts, berries, superfoods and other healthy goodies for a deliciously nutritious snack.

Buckwheat looks like a grainy cereal, it sounds like some kind of wheat – but surprisingly enough, buckwheat is none of those. It is actually the seed of a fruit. Buckinis are activated buckwheat and are great for breakfast with nuts, fruits and nut milk for a supercharged start to the day or just by themselves as a trail mix anytime the hunger pangs strike.

Health Benefits

Looking for a supercharged protein hit? Our Buckinis are made of activated buckwheat, which is actually a seed! Available in three distinct varieties, Buckinis have an alkalising effect on your body unlike most other cereals, which create an acidic environment.

Try it for breakfast with your favourite fruits, superfood powders and nut milk...you'll never go back to nutritionally empty cereals again!

Buckwheat does not contain any gluten thus making it a great alternative for those who have a gluten intolerance. It has a high protein content, has all essential amino acids and is especially high in Lysine, Tryptophan and Arginine. This is particularly important since the body cannot produce essential amino acids on its own and depends entirely on food sources to get them.

A rich source of minerals like Zinc, Iron, Copper, Manganese and B Vitamins, buckwheat is also low in fat. The little fat that it does contain is mostly monounsaturated which is the kind that makes olive oil good for the heart. The Magnesium also helps improve blood circulation and decreases blood pressure. Buckwheat has a lot of heart-healthy soluble fibre which helps reduce cholesterol, and also contains resistant starch, which boosts colon health and controls blood sugar levels. The flavonoids in buckwheat, Quercitin and Rutin, have healing and antioxidant properties.

Serving Suggestions: Enjoy raw with yoghurt or nut/seed milk & fruit. Add spirulina, bee pollen, cat’s claw, maca, mesquite, purple corn flour/extract, camu camu, cacao beans/nibs/butter/powder for extra energy & nutrition.

Sizes & Packaging: 500g in standup clear resealable pouches

  • More Details

Handmade in Melbourne, our Chocolate Buckinis are a healthy chocolate treat. Crafted from a dehydrated blend of Raw Cacao Powder, low GI (35) Coconut Sugar, Coconut Chips and buckwheat, we add a choice selection of our favourite superfoods to complete the mix.

Buckwheat looks like a grainy cereal and sounds like some kind of wheat – but surprisingly enough, it is none of those. It is actually the seed of a fruit. In fact, buckwheat is not related to wheat at all, it comes from the sorrel, knotweed and rhubarb family.

Buckwheat does not contain any gluten which makes it a great alternative for people with an intolerance for the stuff. It has a high protein content, has all essential amino acids and is especially high in Lysine, Tryptophan and Arginine. This is particularly important since the body cannot produce essential amino acids on its own and depends entirely on food sources to get them.

To activate buckwheat, we soak it, wash and rinse it, then dehydrate it at low temperatures (under 40 degrees celcius). This allows for easier digestion and absorption of nutrients.

WITH MACA & MESQUITE

What is it?
Our Caramelised Buckinis are a wholefood mix that combines raw activated buckwheat with traditional superfoods such as Maca and Mesquite.

What are Buckinis you ask? We invented the name to describe our activated buckwheat. Buckinis are grain-free, gluten-free, crunchy bundles of goodness that don’t go soggy in cold milk. And they’re not wheat, in fact they’re not even a grain - they’re a protein-packed seed.

Why do we activate our buckwheat? Well, most cereals are puffed or toasted under extreme heat or pressure, which destroys their nutrients. We prefer to make the most of our ingredients, so we activate them. Activation is the same as sprouting – soaking the seeds in filtered water to release the enzyme inhibitors, bringing the seeds to life. Enzyme inhibitors exist to keep the seed dormant as it waits for the right conditions to germinate. This means they also prevent the nutrients in the seed from being released into your body when you eat it. Activating makes it easier for the body to absorb the nutrients.

How to use:
Enjoy your Buckinis all year round!
In winter - add 1/2 cup Buckinis to 3/4 cup of your favourite milk and gently heat on the stove top.
In summer - add your favourite milk or yoghurt and pile on the seasonal fresh fruit.
Great as a topper for desserts, ice-creams and smoothies.

Karengo Fronds - Sea Vegetable: 500g

  • Description
  • More Details
KARENGO (Porphyra species)

Karengo is a dark purplish and green cellophane- textured sea vegetable found on rocky shores. It is a cousin of Japanese nori and contains lots of fiber and protein.  It is harvested in clean, pure water off the coast from Kaikoura off the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand, dried and then packaged in easy to use ziplock bags.

Raw, it has a mild, pleasant flavour, tastes nutty and slightly salty, and can be eaten as a snack straight out of the bag. Karengo goes very well with almost anything - grains, potatoes, eggs, vegetables and seafood. It doubles in size when fully hydrated. We add it to salads - sometimes straight from the packet and sometimes after being soaked in a very small amount of water for a couple of minutes.

Karengo fronds will keep indefinitely if kept in a cool, dark, dry place

Sea Vegetables - What Are They?

Sea vegetables grow in coastal sea water without roots or flowers. They have anchors called holdfasts that help them attach to rocks or other sea plants. There are about 15,000 species of seaweed around the globe. They are classified into three main groups according to colour: reds, browns and greens. Of the thousands of species of sea vegetables, only a small fraction is used for human consumption. On average, they contain 50% carbohydrate, 35% protein, many vitamins (incl. B12), fibre and a maximum of 2% fat.

Sea Vegetables - Why Eat Them?

Although many people resist trying seaweed, sea vegetable connoisseurs are often made, not born. Many of us have acquired the taste already because of the popularity of Japanese sushi. The reality is that sea vegetables can be an unsurpassed complement to most meals for both taste and nutritional value even in Western cuisine. The secret is to know what other foods complement the taste of a particular sea vegetable. Different varieties of sea vegetables, like land vegetables, have widely different tastes and characteristics.

Because they are hydroscopic, sea vegetables can be used as a nutritious and flavourful binder in fritters, pancakes, soups and gravies. Kelp also acts as a natural tenderizer and flavour enhancer for meats and in marinades.

Nutritional Value

Sea water and the fluids in a healthy human body contain many of the same minerals in very similar concentrations. As a result, sea vegetables have been treasured throughout centuries for their ability to restore, nourish and strengthen the body. One does not have to eat great quantities of sea vegetables in order to enjoy their benefits. Used dried as a seasoning, many varieties of sea vegetables add a delicate hint of the sea. When used in cooking, they add a slight salty taste and a lot of texture to the dish. Roasted, they sometimes have a delicious nutty taste.

Sea vegetables are rich in vitamins, contain all fifty-six minerals and trace elements identified as health requirements, plus they have other nutrients, many of which are known to offer protection against radiation or chemical pollutants. For that reason they are known as a great promoter of glandular health. Minerals in sea vegetables are assimilated more easily than minerals in most supplements because they are made available in an organic chelated form.

Sea vegetables contain iodine, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphates, sulphates, chlorides, bromides and other nutrients in a well balanced form. Moreover, many natural nutrients are easier to assimilate than ones that are artificially produced.

Virtually all sea vegetables contain an abundance of the trace elements, including zinc and magnesium. Sea vegetables are easily prepared and are widely available in natural foods stores. You do not have to eat great quantities of sea vegetables in order to enjoy their benefits.

Sea  vegetables have an alkalising and normalising effect, making them ideal for an often over acidic Western diet. They have a diuretic action in our body which means that sea plants help release excess body fluids and dissolves fatty wastes through the skin.

Sea Vegetables in History

It seems that sea vegetables have always been used by humans, with centuries-old recipes still used today. Past use is attributed to the people of South Africa, China, Japan, Hawaii, Burma, Philippines, Chile, Peru, the North American Indians, Aztecs, Eskimos, Germans, French, Scottish, Welsh, Irish, British, Channel Islands and Maoris. Maoris used seaweed extensively in soups, steamed, roasted, raw and often mixed into a jelly with tutu juice to be eaten or used medicinally. The wide blades of Rimurapa were split to form a pouch for packing and preserving mutton birds, or to cook fish in. In China each family member was given a slice of seaweed jelly daily as a tonic, while seaweed harvesting in Jersey was time of singing, dancing, feasting and storytelling. Commercialisation started in the 1800's in Britain mainly with alginates.

Chinese physicians used sea vegetables as long ago as 3000 BC to treat human maladies. The Babylonians used extracts and whole plants for cosmetics and skin care preparations. The ancient Egyptians treated what we now call goitre with sea vegetables. East Coast American Indians dipped sea vegetables in clam juice, sun-dried them and used them effectively against influenza, a custom still followed on the coast of Maine.

Detoxification Properties

There is no family of foods more protective against radiation and environmental pollutants than sea vegetables. All sea vegetables contain radio-protective properties. One of the more powerful protective elements in sea vegetables is sodium alginate. The alginic acid found in sea vegetation acts as a binding or chelating agent in the body for the radioactive strontium 90 which is now found in our vegetables, milk and meat. Not only does alginic acid flush out strontium 90 from the digestive tract, but it also extracts and chelates it from the bone marrow and bloodstream. Researchers at McGill University (Canada) are finding that this extends to all heavy metals including lead, cadmium and mercury.

Another benefit of eating sea vegetables is that they help dissolve fat and mucus deposits. The body frequently stores environmental contaminants in fat or adipose tissue because they are not essential to life. By helping to dissolve fat deposits and by pulling some contaminants out of the body, sea vegetables can help detoxify from different types of radiation and industrial pollutants.

Wakame Fronds - Sea Vegetable: 300g

  • Description
  • More Details

The scientific name for wakame is Undaria.

It is one of the sweeter tasting sea vegetables, which requires little preparation. It has a silky, visually appealing texture and its delicate taste makes it easy to include in a variety of dishes. The black colour of the dried wakame will turn green when re-hydrating.

Mostly wakame is sold in crispy dry strips; Pacific Harvest wakame is prepared in convenient bite-size fronds that are ready to use.

Wakame sea vegetable is highly recommended in the Macrobiotic diet because of its highly alkaline qualities. In Japanese folk medecine, wakame is known as a cleanser and a strengthener of the blood; miso soup has been used for generations to aid in recovering from the effects of childbirth & illness & to protect from sickness.  More recently it has been discovered to help protect from the effects of radiation.

Wakame is also a good source of iodine and fiber. It is also high in calcium and iron, and is a good source of vitamin A, B12 and K.

This seaweed is well known because it is used in Japanese Miso soup. Wakame was introduced in NZ from the commercial boats and is considered a pest. As a result it can’t be harvested commercially at this stage because of the risks that it might endanger native seaweeds habitat if it is allowed to propagate.

This sea vegetable has a long black or dark-green color, feather-like leaf and it thrives in a wide variety of environments, which makes it very resilient.

It can be added directly to soups or stews at the ends of the cooking and will soak up some of the broth to get back to its original softness. When used for salads or as a vegetable, it should be soaked in cold water for 10 minutes or warm water for 3 minutes. It can also be marinated, blanched, steamed or quick roasted to be enjoyed as 'chips'.

Nutritional Information: Totally natural Wakame (undaria sp.) dried sea vegetable - free of additives.

Raw Untoasted Nori (Sushi Nori)- Porphyra Yezoensis - Certified Organic

The toasted Nori sheets usually found in most shops and always in normal commercial sushi is green coloured and cooked at very high temperature and known to contain carcinogens caused by the high temperatures used in processing. We suggest you avoid this toasted nori. Instead, we suggest you use our Raw Nori Sheets which have been dried under 40° C and do not contain carcinogens.  This raw nori is the best available and is prized by raw and living food eaters. It has a delicious flavour, a dark brown/black colour and are of a stronger consistency which make them harder to tear than the toasted nori sheets.

No chemicals or artificial fertilizers were used to raise this seaweed. They are regularly tested for toxins, fuel oil and pesticides. The nori farmers are also paid living wages and share in the profits.

Nutritional Benefits

Nori seaweed is high in fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals. Compared with dairy products, seaweed provides up to ten times more calcium and iron by weight, and an extremely high amount of important trace minerals. Nori is traditionally eaten to strengthen the circulatory system and help lower cholesterol. 

Nori also contains Vitamin A and C.

Raw Nori Rolls (Wraps)

Basically you can fill the rolls with whatever takes your fancy.

Suggestions:

Avocado (or guacamole mix)
Hummus
Finely shredded raw fish (snapper is fab or terakihi)
Sprouts, shredded lettuce, cabbage
Grated beetroot, carrot, zuchinni
Sundried tomatos, pitted olives
Finely chopped onion, crushed garlic

We often mix all of the above (or whatever is in the fridge, garden etc.) in a large bowl & add some tahini to help bind everything.

On a dry chopping board, place one sheet of nori horizontally facing you & then spread a couple of spoons of your mix onto the horizontal half of the nori sheet closest to you. Spread evenly. If you`ve not done rolls before you'll soon discover how much is the right amount. Roll the nori like a cigar or you can use a bamboo sushi mat. To seal, put a little water on the edge just before you finish rolling it. You can cut into bite sized pieces if you want (clean your knife between each cut & cut very slowly to avoid tearing the nori) or just serve as one long roll - 1 or 2 x per person. Great for picnics & a fun way to get the high minerals of the seaweed into kids as they can help you make them.

Olives are quite possibly the world's most perfect food! David Wolfe has written in his book The Sunfood Diet Success System if he had to pick one fruit to live on for the rest of his life, it would be the olive. The Romans believed the olive to be an incredibly sexual fruit, an aphrodisiac, especially when eaten in large quantities. Once you delve into the olive, you will become privy to the great Mediterranean secret of health, happiness, and longevity.

The olive is a magical fruit. Consider the power and benefits of the olive. The raw olive is:

  • The highest fruit in minerals!

Linseed have a pleasant nutty taste and is high in powerful natural cholesterol controllers, high in fiber and a good source of omega 3.

The high Omega-3 content of Flax Seed Oil makes it a popular dietary supplement. Omega-3 and Omega 6 are essential fatty acids (EFAs), which are exactly that – essential for good health! EFAs are important for the proper functioning of the immune system, brain health, wound healing and for insulating nerves. They’re found in every cell in the body but we can’t make them ourselves. They need to be present in our diet, and the modern day diet of convenience and processed foods, often leaves us lacking the EFA’s we need.

Common symptoms of an Omega-3 deficiency are; dry and cracking skin, slow wound healing, high cholesterol and triglycerides levels, digestive disturbances and hormonal problems. Deficiencies in EFAs have been associated with a wide range of degenerative disorders such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes and various allergies. Incorporating ‘cold pressed’ Flax Seed Oil into your diet, is the most effective way to avoid these deficiencies and provide your body with the EFAs required for a healthy lifestyle. Further health benefits of eating Flax Seed Oil are well documented and include relief of allergies, eczema, improved complexion, reduced cholesterol and even controlling Attention Deficit Disorder.

How to use:
Brown & golden linseed have the same nutritional profile.

Linseed can be eaten whole, or sprouted or ground to make their vital nutrients available to the body. Add linseed to oatmeal, yoghurt, bread, biscuits, crackers and other recipes for extra nutrition & a nutty flavour. One tablespoon of ground flax seeds & three tablespoons of water may serve as a replacement for one egg in baking by binding the other ingredients together.

Quinoa has a light, nutty, delicious flavour. While it is usually considered to be a whole grain, it is actually a seed, but can be prepared like whole grains such as rice or barley. A versatile product, quinoa can be substituted for almost any grain in almost any recipe. It  From soups to salads, to bakes, to desserts – quinoa looks and tastes great.

Quinoa could be your favourite whole grain for three reasons: First, it takes less time to cook than other whole grains – just 10 to 15 minutes. Second, quinoa tastes great on its own, unlike other grains such as millet. Add a bit of olive oil, sea salt and lemon juice and – yum! Finally, of all the whole grains, quinoa has the highest protein content (12%–18%) and provides all 9 essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. It is a good source of dietary fiber, phosphorus, magnesium and iron. Quinoa is an organic gluten-free and cholesterol-free whole grain.

Quinoa was a staple food for thousands of years in the Andes region of South America as one of just a few crops the ancient Incas cultivated at such high altitude.

Quinoa has anti-inflammatory nutrients including phenolic acids (including hydroxycinnamic and hydroxybenzoic acids), members of the vitamin E family like gamma-tocopherol, and cell wall polysaccharides like arabinans and rhamnogalacturonans.

 

Here are 11 proven health benefits of quinoa:

1. Quinoa is incredibly nutritious
Quinoa is a grain crop that is grown for its edible seeds. It is pronounced KEEN-wah.

It technically isn’t a cereal grain, but a pseudo-cereal. In other words, it is basically a "seed" which is prepared and eaten similarly to a grain.

Quinoa was an important crop for the Inca Empire back in the day. They referred to it as the "mother of all grains" and believed it to be sacred. It has been consumed for thousands of years in South America, although it only became popular and reached "superfood status" a few years ago. These days, you can find Quinoa and products made with it all over the world.

There are three main types of quinoa… white, red and black. This is coming with a total of 222 calories, with 39 grams of carbs and 4 grams of fat. It also contains a small amount of Omega-3 fatty acids.

Quinoa is non-GMO, Gluten Free and usually grown organically. Even though not technically a grain, it still counts as a "whole grain" food.

2. Quinoa contains potent bioactive substances called Quercetin and Kaempferol
The health effects of real foods go way beyond the vitamins and minerals we’re all familiar with.

There are thousands of trace nutrients in there… and some of them are extremely healthy. This includes interesting molecules called flavonoids, which are plant antioxidants that have been shown to have all sorts of beneficial effects on health.

Two flavonoids that have been particularly well studied are Quercetin and Kaempferol… and they happen to be found in large amounts in Quinoa. In fact, the quercetin content of quinoa is even higher than typical high-quercetin foods like cranberries. These important molecules have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-cancer and anti-depressant effects… at least in animal studies.

By including quinoa in your diet, you will significantly increase your total intake of these (and other) important nutrients.

3. It is Very High in Fiber… Much Higher Than Most Grains 
Another important benefit of quinoa is that it is high in fiber. One study that looked at 4 varieties of quinoa found a range of between 10 and 16 grams of fiber, per every 100 grams of uncooked quinoa. This equals 17-27 grams per cup, which is very high… more than twice as high as most grains. Boiled quinoa contains much less fiber, gram for gram, because it absorbs so much water.

Unfortunately, most of the fiber is insoluble fiber, which doesn’t appear to have the same health benefits as soluble fiber. That being said, the soluble fiber content is about 2.5 grams per cup (or 1.5 grams per 100 grams), which is still decent. There are numerous studies showing that soluble fiber can help reduce blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol, increase fullness and help with weight loss.

4. Quinoa is Gluten Free and Perfect For People With Gluten Intolerance
Many researchers have been looking at quinoa as a suitable ingredient in a gluten-free diet, for people who don’t want to give up staples like breads and pasta.

Studies have shown that by using quinoa instead of typical gluten-free ingredients like refined tapioca, potato, corn and rice flour, it can dramatically increase the nutrient and antioxidant value of the diet.

5. Quinoa is Very High in Protein, With All The Essential Amino Acids That we Need 
Protein is made out of amino acids. Some of them are termed "essential" because we can not produce them and need to get them from the diet. If a food contains all the essential amino acids, it is seen as a "complete" protein. The problem is that many plant foods are deficient in certain essential amino acids, such as Lysine.

However, quinoa is an exception to this, being particularly high in in all the essential amino acids. For this reason, quinoa is an excellent source of protein. It has both more and better protein than most grains.

With 8 grams of quality protein per cup of cooked quinoa (or 4.5 grams per 100 grams), quinoa is an excellent plant-based protein source for vegetarians and vegans.

6. Quinoa Has a Low Glycemic Index 
The glycemic index is a measure of how quickly foods raise blood sugar levels. It is known that eating foods that are high on the glycemic index can stimulate hunger and contribute to obesity. Such foods have also been linked to many of the chronic, Western diseases that are so common today… like diabetes and heart disease. Quinoa has a glycemic index of 53, which is considered low.

However, it’s important to keep in mind that quinoa is still pretty high in carbs, so it is not a good choice for a low-carb diet, at least not in large amounts.

7. It is High in Minerals That Most People Don’t Get Enough of, Especially Magnesium
There are many nutrients in the modern diet that people tend to be lacking in. This is particularly true of some minerals, especially Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc and (for women) Iron. Interestingly, quinoa is very high in all 4 minerals. It is particularly high in magnesium, with one cup having about 30% of the RDA.

The problem is that quinoa contains a substance called phytic acid, which can bind these minerals and reduce their absorption.

However, by soaking and/or sprouting the quinoa before cooking it, you can reduce the phytic acid content and make these minerals more bioavailable.

Quinoa is also pretty high in oxalates, which reduce the absorption of calcium and can cause problems for certain individuals with recurring kidney stones.

8. Quinoa May Have Some Major Benefits For Metabolic Health
Given the high amount of beneficial nutrients, it makes sense that quinoa could lead to improvements in metabolic health.

Although this needs to be studied more thoroughly, I did find two studies (one in humans, the other in rats) that examined the effects of quinoa on metabolic health.

The human study found that using quinoa instead of typical gluten-free breads and pastas significantly reduced blood sugar, insulin and triglyceride levels. The rat study found that adding quinoa to a diet high in fructose almost completely inhibited the negative effects of fructose.

9. Quinoa is Loaded With Antioxidants
Quinoa also happens to be very high in antioxidants.
Antioxidants are substances that neutralize free radicals and are believed to help fight ageing and many diseases.
One study looked at antioxidants in 10 foods, 5 cereals, 3 pseudocereals and 2 legumes.
Quinoa had the highest antioxidant content of all 10.
Allowing quinoa seeds to sprout seems to increase the antioxidant content even further.

10. Quinoa Has Several Important Characteristics That Make it a Weight Loss Friendly Food
In order to lose weight, we need to take in fewer calories than we burn.

It is known that certain properties of foods can facilitate this process… either by boosting metabolism (increasing calories out) or reducing appetite (lowering calories in).

Interestingly, quinoa has several such properties. It is high in protein… which can both increase metabolism and reduce appetite significantly. The high amount of fiber should also help to increase feelings of fullness, making us eat fewer calories overall.

The fact that quinoa has a low glycemic index is another important feature, but choosing such foods has been linked to reduced calorie intake.

Although there is currently no study that looks at the effects of quinoa on body weight, it seems intuitive that it could be a useful part of a healthy weight loss diet.

11. Quinoa is Easy to Incorporate Into Your Diet!
The last one is not a health benefit, but still incredibly important. It is the fact that quinoa is very easy to incorporate into your diet.

It is also tasty and goes well with many foods. Depending on the type of quinoa, it can be important to rinse it with water in order to get rid of saponins, which are found on the outer layer and can have a bitter flavour.

However, some brands have already been rinsed, so this may not be necessary.

Here are the steps to make about 2 cups of sprouted quinoa:
1.
Rinse 1 – 1.5 cups of quinoa thoroughly with cold water. Place the quinoa into a 1 quart mason jar. Fill this jar to the top with more cold water. Let it soak for about six hours.

2. Pour out the water and put a sprouting lid on the jar. This lid can also be used as a strainer. Or, you can use a fine mesh strainer. After you pour the water out, set the jar with the sprouting lid on upside down in a bowl/container to catch excess dripping water.

3. About every 6 or so hours (or whenever you have time to/remember), rinse the quinoa with water, pour out, and put the jar upside down over the bowl again.

4. It will take a day or two for sprouts to form. Once you see little-thread-like spouts coming from the quinoa , place the quinoa on a tray or plate and cover with a cloth or parchment paper to keep away dust. Move this tray away from direct sunlight and keep at room temperature. Allow time for the quinoa to fully dry out.

5. Store in a sealed plastic bag or sealed glass container in the refrigerator to keep cool and ensure freshness. It’s best to use these sprouts within 1 week!

Quinoa can be ready to eat in as little as 15-20 minutes:
Put 2 cups of water in a pot, turn up the heat.
Add 1 cup of raw quinoa, with a dash of salt.
Boil for 15-20 minutes.
Eat.
It should now have absorbed most of the water and gotten a fluffy look. If done right, it should have a mild, nutty flavour and a satisfying crunch.

What are activated seeds?
An activated seed is a seed that has been soaked and sprouted to release its enzyme inhibitors.

Why should seeds be activated?
Enzyme inhibitors prevent nuts from sprouting at inappropriate times. This is an evolutionary mechanism that ensures seeds only sprout when environmental conditions will support the growth of young plants. Phytic acid and oxalic acid are examples of enzyme inhibitors, and are found in varying ratios depending on the seed. Of the four seasons, springtime is when we see nature come to life. Environmental conditions support the germination of seeds into seedlings. Rainfall is responsible for deactivating the enzyme inhibitors, which when coupled moderate spring temperatures supports the growth of freshly germinated seedlings into young plants.

These enzyme inhibitors also prevent the seeds from being over eaten by animals in the wild. In humans' regular consumption of seeds with enzyme inhibitors, can result in digestive distress in much the same way gluten does. Constipation, stomach cramps and bloating are examples of some issues people have eating raw, unactivated seeds. This is why seed activation is an important process.

How do we activate our seeds?
An activated seed is essentially a germinated seed. The activation process requires seeds to be soaked in water for a period of 12-24 hours depending on the nut variety. This deactivates the enzyme inhibitors and brings the seed to life. Once our seeds have been soaked, we then dehydrate them at low temperatures (40 degrees) over a 24-hour period. Dehydrated seeds have a similar flavour and texture to roasted seeds or nuts, however are much more nutrient dense and taste much fresher. Activating seeds makes the nutrients more digestible and easier to assimilate, they also taste delicious!

Looking for a health-promoting snack? A handful of sunflower seeds will take care of your hunger, while also enhancing your health by supplying significant amounts of vitamin E, magnesium and selenium.

Anti-Inflammatory and Cardiovascular Benefits from Sunflower Seeds' Vitamin E
Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of vitamin E, the body's primary fat-soluble antioxidant. Vitamin E travels throughout the body neutralizing free radicals that would otherwise damage fat-containing structures and molecules, such as cell membranes, brain cells, and cholesterol. By protecting these cellular and molecular components, vitamin E has significant anti-inflammatory effects that result in the reduction of symptoms in asthma, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis, conditions where free radicals and inflammation play a big role. Vitamin E has also been shown to reduce the risk of colon cancer, help decrease the severity and frequency of hot flashes in women going through menopause, and help reduce the development of diabetic complications.

In addition, vitamin E plays an important role in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. Vitamin E is one of the main antioxidants found in cholesterol particles and helps prevent free radicals from oxidizing cholesterol. Only after it has been oxidized is cholesterol able to adhere to blood vessel walls and initiate the process of atherosclerosis, which can lead to blocked arteries, heart attack, or stroke. Getting plenty of vitamin E can significantly reduce the risk of developing atherosclerosis. In fact, studies show that people who get a good amount of vitamin E are at a much lower risk of dying of a heart attack than people whose dietary intake of vitamin E is marginal or inadequate.

Sunflower Seeds' Phytosterols Lower Cholesterol
Phytosterols are compounds found in plants that have a chemical structure very similar to cholesterol, and when present in the diet in sufficient amounts, are believed to reduce blood levels of cholesterol, enhance the immune response and decrease risk of certain cancers.

Phytosterols beneficial effects are so dramatic that they have been extracted from soybean, corn, and pine tree oil and added to processed foods, such as "butter"-replacement spreads, which are then touted as cholesterol-lowering "foods." But why settle for an imitation "butter" when Mother Nature's nuts and seeds are a naturally rich source of phytosterols—and cardio-protective fiber, minerals and healthy fats as well?

In a study in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, researchers published the amounts of phytosterols present in nuts and seeds commonly eaten in the United States.

Sesame seeds had the highest total phytosterol content (400-413 mg per 100 grams), and English walnuts and Brazil nuts the lowest (113 mg/100grams and 95 mg/100 grams). (100 grams is equivalent to 3.5 ounces.) Of the nuts and seeds typically consumed as snack foods, sunflower seeds and pistachios were richest in phytosterols (270-289 mg/100 g), followed by pumpkin seeds (265 mg/100 g).

Calm Your Nerves, Muscles and Blood Vessels with Sunflower Seeds' Magnesium
Sunflower seeds are a good source of magnesium. Numerous studies have demonstrated that magnesium helps reduce the severity of asthma, lower high blood pressure, and prevent migraine headaches, as well as reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Magnesium is also necessary for healthy bones and energy production. About two-thirds of the magnesium in the human body is found in our bones. Some helps give bones their physical structure, while the rest is found on the surface of the bone where it is stored for the body to draw upon as needed.

Magnesium counterbalances calcium, thus helping to regulate nerve and muscle tone. In many nerve cells, magnesium serves as Nature's own calcium channel blocker, preventing calcium from rushing into the nerve cell and activating the nerve. By blocking calcium's entry, magnesium keeps our nerves (and the blood vessels and muscles they ennervate) relaxed. If our diet provides us with too little magnesium, however, calcium can gain free entry, and the nerve cell can become overactivated, sending too many messages and causing excessive contraction. Insufficient magnesium can thus contribute to high blood pressure, muscle spasms (including spasms of the heart muscle or the spasms of the airways symptomatic of asthma), and migraine headaches, as well as muscle cramps, tension, soreness and fatigue.

Improved Detoxification and Cancer Prevention from Sunflower Seeds' Selenium
Sunflower seeds are also a good source of selenium, a trace mineral that is of fundamental importance to human health. Accumulated evidence from prospective studies, intervention trials and studies on animal models of cancer has suggested a strong inverse correlation between selenium intake and cancer incidence. Selenium has been shown to induce DNA repair and synthesis in damaged cells, to inhibit the proliferation of cancer cells, and to induce their apoptosis, the self-destruct sequence the body uses to eliminate worn out or abnormal cells.

In addition, selenium is incorporated at the active site of many proteins, including glutathione peroxidase, which is particularly important for cancer protection. One of the body's most powerful antioxidant enzymes, glutathione peroxidase is used in the liver to detoxify a wide range of potentially harmful molecules. When levels of glutathione peroxidase are too low, these toxic molecules are not disarmed and wreak havoc on any cells with which they come in contact, damaging their cellular DNA and promoting the development of cancer cells. Its selenium richness is another reason that sunflower seeds can make a good snack.
