Spruts Nuts 

Spruts are the better almond! Sprouting breaks down enzyme inhibitors so your body can focus on more important things – like fighting germs or flushing out toxins. Mimicking the germination process unlocks high concentrations in essential vitamins and minerals. The result is a clean, delicious and nutritionally dense snack.FullSizeRender-4.jpgFullSizeRender-5.jpg
