Our Story

Hi, my name is Rich and I discovered the health benefits of sprouting nuts while I was a professional firefighter in California. I was in search of a delicious, energy-packed snack to sustain me on one of the toughest jobs on earth.  

Eating store-bought nuts on long shifts fighting wildfires made me bloated, gassy, and tired.  As soon as I started sprouting nuts before eating them, all of my digestive issues went away. Sprouting mimics nature's process of bringing nuts to life and makes them:

  • Easier to digest
  • Nutrient dense & bioavailable
  • Full of good fats & protein
  • Crunchy & delicious

Rich Nuts sprouted nuts are easy to digest, nutrient-dense, and loaded with good fats and protein that keep you going all day.  

Our amazing gourmet nuts are made with unique, regeneratively-sourced ingredients that enhance the natural flavor of the nuts.

One taste and you’ll agree — Rich Nuts are THE BEST NUTS EVER!

Enjoy!  -Rich Pauwels, Founder
