Activating nuts releases their healthy enzymes. Be sure to start with raw almonds (most are pasteurized -- and far less nutritious). To determine whether they've been pasteurized, soak them for 8 hours. If the peels slip off easily, they're raw. If it takes some effort to remove the skin, they have been pasteurized.Whole Living, January/February January/February 2013 http://www.marthastewart.com/216356/activated-nuts
