Why Sprouted Grains?
Sprouted flour is made from grain that has been soaked in water until it begins to grow. It is then dried down to a stable moisture content and milled into flour.
Sprouted grain actually is not a new concept. Ancient cultures have long practiced various methods to increase the nutritional value of their grains. Sprouting sometimes happened in the fields naturally before the invention of the combine and quicker harvest times. Crops were cut and left to stand until it was threshed. If it rained on the grain before it was gathered in, it could start to sprout. This sprouting process breaks down anti-nutrients and makes the grain easier to digest.
There have been numerous studies on the benefits of sprouting grains. Here are some of the findings that show sprouted flour to be a healthy alternative to conventional flour. Also see our FAQs page.
