John Sigona’s Pick of the Week

Sprouted Gourmet Almonds: A Live and Very Healthy Food

On special right now through August 7th

Six months ago I introduced sprouted raw gourmet almonds, a hard-to-find raw food item with many health benefits. I’m re-introducing this wonderful item at a very special price.

California Raw Sprouted Gourmet Almonds: 5 oz. container for only $2.99 (regular $4.99)

A live, healthy and unique product from Central California, our sprouted gourmet almonds are absolutely incredible and hard to find anywhere but at Sigona’s Farmers Market.

I’m pleased as punch to offer them to you because they are truly so good for you. You’ll find them in our dried fruits and nuts section in 5oz. 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 for this 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 kernel 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.

**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

Compared to “regular” raw almonds, sprouted are superior.
