Why to eat ACTIVATED instead of RAW nuts & seeds:
Activated foods are living foods. The soaking process breaks down enzyme inhibitors - kick-starting enzymes and making activated nuts and seeds are much easier to digest.

Activating washes away phytic acid and tannins both present in non-activated nuts. Phytic acid and tannins are not only bitter, but they can stop the body from absorbing some of the nutrients in nuts.
