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