Everything you need to know to make your own healthy nut butters and spreads at home
First, nut butter on the market today are usually blended with additives: evaporated cane juice, processed sugars, cheap vegetable oils, and refined salts.
Second, most of the almond butter that you find are made from roasted or dry roasted almonds. Commercially roasted nuts are flash-fried in cheap, rancid oils, while dry roasted nuts are exposed to exceedingly high temperatures that denature the nutrients and cause the breakdown of fats, increasing free radical capacity.
Third, nut butter is usually made from broken pieces that are not suitable for selling and are higher in fungus since there is a more open surface area on broken nuts.
If you are lucky enough to find a jar that is made from “raw nuts” this is better, but it skips out on the crucial step of soaking nuts to increase digestibility. Raw, unsoaked nuts have high levels of phytic acid, a form of bound phosphorous, which serves as a physiological protectant and antioxidant for the plant. Phytates (or enzyme inhibitors) can directly affect the gastrointestinal tract, causing irritation and contributing to the potential for nutrient deficiencies.
