Why Sprouting Grains Are Better for you than Regular Grains

Why Sprouting Grains Are Better for you than Regular Grains

At Pete’s Organic Market, you’ll find a range of vacuum sealed sourdough, buckwheat, sprouted breads (or create and add your own ingredients, made to order) with amazing flavours to suit. These taste even more mouth-watering toasted, in the fry pan with coconut oil, or combined with our macadamia spread or almond & turmeric nut spread.

We encourage all families to steer away from toxic, sugary, cereals for breakfast (just because the TV told you so) and more towards natural, organic options like our sprouted breads or meals.

The term “sprouting” is a process used to release all the vital nutrients stored in whole grains. Sprouting grains and seeds before baking produces living, nutrient-rich food. The flour made from these grains provides protein, vitamins and minerals – and isn’t toxic like refined grains; more specifically, wheat. Sprouting also neutralizes phytic acid, a substance present in grains, which inhibits absorption of nutrients.

How does producing sprouted bread (by Pete’s Organic Market) differ from whole wheat and white wheat bread (found in supermarkets)?

• White Wheat bread is made by removing the wheat kernel's germ and bran (where all the nutrients are), grinding up only the endosperm into flour. So essentially, you’re eating a fluffy white cloud of carbohydrates/sugar with zero nutrients.

• Whole-wheat bread is made by grinding a small amount of “wheat” kernels into whole-wheat flour. Again, minimal nutrients as “wheat” itself has been so genetically modified by Monsanto that it is now completely toxic.

• Sprouted-grain bread is made from wheat kernels that have been sprouted, grounded and baked into bread. This process retains most of the nutrients, fibre, vitamins and protein.
