I mistakenly put this post in the juicing section, I think it was. After looking for responses I saw that I'd put there though I'd intended to put it here. This section seems more appropriate. So here it is.
Does soaking nuts and seeds reduce the fat content somehow? I have read that soaking them breaks, I think it's the fatty acids, down to what, triglycerides? I don't know the chemistry of it all. I'm just thinking that during the breakdown process, that some of the fat might be reduced somehow. In the initial soaking especially, then, by sprouting and rinsing, maybe more is removed.
I love the nutty taste but I try to keep the fat content in my diet low. And, of course, eating nuts and seeds help satiate, and provides nutrients. I'm pretty darn skinny though I eat quite a lot and have been pretty active. Thinking this might help put on a bit of weight. I'm eating more nuts and seeds lately but don't really want to dramatically increase the amount of fat in my diet.
