KIND has released a health report of healthy food trends to look out for in 2019 in which digestive health has emerged as a core component of people’s modern view of health and wellness. A new appreciation has arisen for the powerful impact of the microbiome!
With this in mind, Boundless is the only nuts and seeds snack in the market that considers gut health and reduces digestive problems. Unlike other nut and seeds brands, Boundless soak and bake their nuts and seeds to unlock key nutrients that other snacks lack. Typical raw nuts contain something called phytate (the anti-nutritient) and the human body is unable to digest it, which means it can be dangerous to consume loads of nuts every day.
Soaking nuts (which Boundless is the only nut/seed snack that does) decreases the amount of phytate, allowing for easier digestion of the other nutrients found in the nut. Ancient cultures such as the Aztecs and Aborigines have been activating nuts for centuries. Activation stimulates the early processes known as germination and sprouting which disarms the enzymes protecting the storage state and then lowers the phytate levels as the nut taps into the protected minerals to help its growth and for people to be able to absorb upon consumption.
Boundless soak and bake their nuts and seeds to unlock these nutrients and their F.A.B. Method(TM) (Flood, Activate, Bake) is truly what separates this snack from other generic brands:
- FLOOD: First, they drench their nuts and seeds in water to kick start nature’s natural activation process.
- ACTIVATE: They then soak the nuts to remove the bitter phytic acid and protective enzymes, enabling better digestion.
- BAKE: Finally, they gently bake them using natural ingredients for a fuller flavour and lighter crunch.
