The sprouted is made from the sprouted cereal grain.
Grains are the mature, dormant seed of cereal grasses. Just like any other seed, under the right conditions of temperature and moisture, these seeds germinate into young plants and start the life cycle anew. Sprouting allows the transformation of starch into simple elements, making it easier for your body to digest and process. Germination acts like a predigestion of proteins by saving an important energy expense to the body.
Sprouted grains offer a more easily digestible and nutritious alternative to every day (unsprouted) flours and flakes.
Why should we eat sprouted grains?
- They are easier to digest than unsprouted grains: Sprouting breaks down a portion of the starches in grains into simple sugars that are easily digested.
- More nutrient-dense than unsprouted grains + better absorption of nutrients: sprouting neutralizes enzyme inhibitors like e.g. phytic acid. This compound acts by immobilizing minerals and preventing your body from assimilating them and benefiting from their goodness. By destroying them, sprouting enhances both vitamin and mineral intake from your food.
- Higher in protein: sprouting increases the seed’s protein content and enzymes cut these proteins into smaller, building blocks called amino acids, which are much easier for your digestive system to assimilate.
- Better taste: sprouting reduces bitterness in the grains.
How to use sprouted flours?
