Beet kvass is awesome, but can be problematic for some people: ...excerpted from the excellent comments section of this Gut forum post:http://www.lovingourguts.com/low-oxa...in-season-now/

"Hi Beth, First soaking and fermenting seem to have little if any impact on oxalate content of foods so almonds that have been soaked and beet kvass are almost certainly still very high oxalate I am sorry to say. My younger daughter will react to oxalate consumption in an obvious way and would react to my eating just a couple of soaked almonds from what was passing through my breast milk to her. "
Almonds are high in oxalates and assorted phytates, but we do know that soaking/sprouted raw almonds & slipping the brown skins off the sprouts before processing them or before consumption, eliminates many/most of these anti-nutrients. I posted that on her site, maybe she can test it since she & has such a sensitive child that will be an ideal test barometer. Allergies, to foods, pollen, pet dander or dust mites, are mistakes of the brain and immune system, & can be reversed, healed or at the very least vastly improved.
