You do your very best to stock the pantry with nutritious snacks and nuts and seeds are obvious choices. Packed with protein, healthy fats, minerals and fibre, these kernels of goodness sound great in theory, don’t they?

But within moments of your 11am handful, you feel bloated, heavy and queasy, sometimes humorously referred to as ‘nut gut’! How can this be?

Well, along with their fantastic array of nutrients, nuts and seeds also contain phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors that interfere with our ability to digest and absorb their nutrients properly, putting additional pressure on our digestive systems and causing inflammation of the gut wall.

Yes, ‘nut gut’ is real!

Traditional people and our wise ancestors devised specific techniques to neutralise these irritating compounds and increase the nutrient value of nuts and seeds. These days known as ‘activating’, the aim is to begin the process of sprouting/germination, and then gently drying to lock in nutrition.

It’s an involved process requiring forward thinking and special equipment, so it can be far too tempting to either ditch nuts and seeds all together or put up with the raw-nut bloats!

Soulla from Star Anise Organic Wholefoods is committed to the time-honoured principles of activation, making traditionally prepared, nutrient-dense nuts and seeds available in convenient, air-locked packs. Light, crisp and addictively moreish, they are a fantastic kitchen staple – nutrient-dense snacking at your fingertips!

Star Anise’s activated nuts and seeds are:

  • Long-soaked in pure water, sea salt and an acidic medium (whey or apple cider vinegar), thoroughly neutralising toxic compounds to keep you happily ‘nut gut free’!  
  • Gently and slowly dehydrated to lock in critical nutrients and enzymes, ensuring that you are receiving optimal nutrition from your crispy snacks
