I want to lower the Phytic Acid I eat from Nuts (my diet is 60% fat, so they are one of my favorite good fat sources), and I want to soak them at home myself, but they sell Sprouted Almonds at Whole Foods, are those the same thing?

I wouldn't by soaked/sprouted almonds if they are not organic! All almonds (even organic) grown in U.S. are pasteurized. The soaked almonds in WF is from the US and pasteurized & not organic. I buy my soaked nuts at www.livingnutz.com (reasonable & good)!

The act of soaking helps to sprout almonds. If they are raw, and if you soak them, you make notice a small protrusion coming from the pointy end of the almond. If it's there, then it's " definitely sprouted. Just soaking them make or make not sprout them (especially if they aren't truly raw).
