After soaking them you will see that the water gets a little dark. This is because the skin of almonds contains enzyme inhibitors that protect the almond until the proper levels of sunlight and water allow it to germinate. This inhibitor or phytic acid can prevent you from fully digesting the nutrients properly.
I like the texture, but you can put them in the oven for a short time to crisp them back up.
