Nothing tastes better than when something is made from scratch at home. The success is awesome and just so self rewarding. So let`s get to using our new Nut Milk Bag from Everyday Kitchen to make us some milk! Most nuts, seeds, grains and beans are covered in natural chemicals â€“ enzyme inhibitors and toxins â€“ that protect them while growing, both from sprouting prematurely and also from predators. These nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances are enzyme inhibitors, phytates (phytic acid), polyphenols (tannins), and goitrogens. Once harvested, those same chemicals, the major one being phytic acid â€“ are indigestible to the human body and must be broken down before consumption. When food containing phytic acid is consumed, the acid combines with important minerals like calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and especially zinc in the intestinal tract and blocks their absorption which inhibits our digestive systemsâ€™ ability to break the nut down properly. The very simple process of soaking releases these chemicals, helping you to absorb your foodâ€™s essential minerals and nutrients. Additionally, by soaking the nuts with the removal of these nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances, the flavor and taste is much more ideal and appealing.
To summarize: Soaking nuts makes them easier to digest and improves their flavor.
Here`s how to do it:
1) Soak your nuts in filtered water for the appropriate time, drain and rinse.
2) Blend your soaked nuts with filtered water, adding in any flavorings you would like.
3) Pour into your nut milk bag and squeeze. Separating the pulp from the milk.
The Nut Milk Bag from Everyday Kitchen Essentials is made in the USA and made of high quality material in my opinion. I found the bag was made of a fine mesh, making it easier to squeeze more milk from the bag when compared to using other nut milk bags. I love how strong and how well the bag holds up. I also love that it`s reusable. The bag is 10 X 13 inches, making it easy to fit over bowls when pouring and straining is taking place. This is a large sized in comparison to other bags as well. I also noticed the bag is easy to clean - a must have for my busy household! Another use I found for the nut bag other than for it`s intended purpose: harvesting our crops! Since I have a small garden in my backyard, I like to use this bag to collect the few vegetables I pick at a time as it makes it easy to carry and collect and then rinse them off. I`m quite impressed with this quality nut milk bag and highly recommend it. It`s great for making your own milk and collecting your garden crops! I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
