Is there a difference between "soaked" and "sprouted"?

There is some confusion around the terminology for soaked and dehydrated nuts and seeds. The terms “activated”, "germinated", "soaked" or “crispy nuts” are often used to describe the process of soaking and dehydrating.

Why Organic?

Organic farmers ensure synthetic pesticides, chemical fertilizers and genetically modified organisms (GMO) stay off their farm and don't contaminate food, water, soil and wildlife.
