Raw Organic Non-Irradiated Nuts & Seeds

NEW: rolled oats, steel cut oats and gluten-free flour – all organic, all wheat-free (can’t say gluten-free in Canada)

Raw organic non-irradiated nuts & seeds are not easy to find! I’ve asked at several stores and only a few exist – most food on the market is either raw OR organic, not both. I decided to purchase directly from farmers and an independent supplier dedicated to sourcing ethically grown foods.

Many foods coming across the border are irradiated to kill bacteria that might be growing on them. It can also kill beneficial enzymes, 5-80% of vitamins are lost, it breaks up molecules creating free radicals etc. It’s a personal choice on whether you prefer irradiated or non-irradiated foods.

They are raw in that they aren’t dried at temperatures any higher than 106F – most lower or no heating at all. This helps preserve all the beneficial enzymes that come with these foods for digestion.

Most of the products below are certified organic and the remaining are organic but not certified. There are even a few sprouted items which produce even more beneficial enzymes and nutrients. Learn more about the value of sprouting here.

Hemp Hearts

Hempnuts_0
The shelf life of this hemp is very long due to its low moisture content and is not prone to go rancid. From Saskatchewan and is Certified organic.

Macadamia Nuts

MacadamiaNuts
These Hawaiian macadamia nuts are the freshest and taste great due to a unique process where they are dried without heating and shelled right after harvest. This insures quality and enhances sweetness and shelf life. Grown without pesticides.

It is difficult to overeat with raw Macadamia Nuts, their enzymes “signal” to the brain to stop eating. People experience this phenomena as: munching with full appetite and suddenly feel they taste “different”.

Oats – Rolled

organic rolled oats
These Canadian organic “gluten-free”(see note below) oats have a delicious lightly toasted flavour. They are not raw – the groats have been lightly heated with steam to stabilize the lipases enzyme and prevent premature fat break-down, allowing them to be stored at room temperature. The groats are steamed and rolled flat. In this case, the light steam assists in the digestibility but does not destroy the enzymes or vitamins. To make them, add 1 cup of oats to 2-3 cups of boiling water. Cook on low for 10-20 minutes adding in fruit, cinnamon, nutmeg &/or milk. Stir frequently.

These oats are high in iron, fibre & are sodium-free. They are certified organic and non-GMO. Milled in an oat-only facility.

Gluten-free vs. Wheat-free
In Canada we can’t say that oats are gluten free because they contain a protein called gliadin which contributes to the formation of gluten. There are some celiacs that react to gliadin, but most do not. You would have to learn about your niche sensitivities/allergies to be sure. The farmer I purchase from mills these oats in a dedicated oat-only facility so they are free from contamination from other high gluten products. However, it is always best to conduct you own trials to determine what foods are right for your specific condition and diet.

Oats – Steel Cut

organic steel cut oats
These Canadian organic “wheat-free” (see gluten-free note below) oats have actually won awards! Steel cut oats are de-hulled oat groats that are sliced with steel blades. They are heartier and chewier than regular oats and are generally just used as a porridge (but I’ve seen crumbles made from them too). To cook – add 1 cup of oats to 3-4 cups of boiling water. Add in any of the following for additional flavour: cinnamon, nutmeg, apples, any fruit, nuts, maple syrup. Cook and stir on low for 10-20 minutes until no water remains and you have your preferred consistency. Some people like to add a bit of milk, almonds milk or yogourt to their bowl once served.

Pecans

pecans
From wild, very old trees in Missouri. Untouched by pesticides, herbicides or any other cides. The earliest european settlers would have eaten from these trees. Small and sweet; in taste tests most choose this pecan over the bigger hybrid varieties. Higher in omega-3 oils than other pecans. Almost all pecans are put in 180F water for 20 minutes before shelling. We have had these nuts dried to very low moisture content to preserve freshness. Keep cool. These are shelled without heat. Certified organic.

Pistachio Kernels
