Vitamin C from Nuts & Seeds?

A new nut and seed butter shows unusually high amounts of vitamin C in the Nutrition Facts panel. Is this possible?


No. Nuts and seeds have very little, if any, vitamin C. However, if the seeds/nuts are sprouted, the germinating seed and then the young plant will create vitamin C. It is possible that the company used the data for sprouts rather than the dried seeds/nuts that are actually used to make the butter. Either way, the vitamin C data on the nut/seed butter label is incorrect.
