Like grains, raw nuts and seeds, contain moderate levels of phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors, so they should be soaked accordingly.

Long-soak nuts (almonds, pistachios, and hazelnuts) need at least 8 hours. 

Medium-soak nuts (pecans, walnuts, and Brazil nuts) are oilier and swell up quickly, so require less soaking time. 

Short-soak nuts (cashews, macadamias, and pine nuts) have the highest fat content and require only 2 to 4 hours soaking. Do not soak these nuts for longer than 4 hours. Soaking them for extended periods of time break down their health-promoting oils.
