John Sigona’s Pick of the Week: Gourmet Sprouted Almonds

John Sigona’s Pick of the Week: Gourmet Sprouted Almonds

A Live Food!

Sprouted Gourmet Almonds

on sale $3.99

Reg. $4.99 5 oz. container

I invite you to read about this hard to find live food item and its many health benefits. This is another proud new addition to our excellent selection of dried fruit and nuts.  A live, healthy and unique product from Central California…our gourmet sprouted almonds are absolutely incredible and  hard to find anywhere but at Sigona’s Farmers Market.

I’m pleased to offer them to you because they are truly so good for you…you’ll find them in our dried fruit and nut section, in 5 oz. containers.

Believe it or not, these are actually healthier, better tasting, and easier to chew and digest than our regular raw almonds. The sprouted unique formula is the key…the “secret” to this very special almond which originated from the farming family who grows these almonds, in Central California.

This healthy, original live sprouted food has exceptional nutritional value locked inside each kernal, because sprouting enlivens the enzymes that are dormant within. Contact with water “awakens” the nut, so sprouted almonds contain concentrated vital energy and nutrition. Sprouting neutralizes  enzyme inhibitors present in the nut, allowing quicker and more complete digestion and assimilation of nutrients.

Check out this truly amazing nutritional information**:

  • Sprouted Almonds contain Resveratrol—an anti aging factor—1.4 mg per 24 nuts—that’s the equivalent of 3 glasses of Red Wine
  • Sprouted Almonds contain Beta Sitosterol, Campesterol, and Stanols—Cholesterol Lowering Factors
  • Sprouted Almonds contain Stigma Sterol—Anti Muscle Stiffness Factor
