Should I soak almonds before using them?

Someone told me that almonds need to be soaked for a while, or at least rinsed before using because of the coating on them. Is this necessary? Thank you!

Dietitian's Answer

Most often people suggest to soak almonds (and beans) due to their phytic acid that may bind certain minerals making them difficult to absorb. However, there isn't much research found on this topic. Jack Norris answers this Q very well in this post here:

I would also tend to think that since the NutriBullet pulverizes ingredients, it helps "pre-digest" the ingredients, making them easier to digest vs. consuming them in whole form.
