Are Sprouted Grains Actually Better For You?
By Rosie Schwartz
Toronto- based dietitian Rosy Schwartz wrote a concise article about the benefits that sprouted grains, beans and seeds can offer individuals.
“As the grain begins to sprout, it accesses some of the nutrients stored to help the plant grow. And, while whole grains contain compounds known as “anti-nutrients,” which decrease your body’s absorption of certain key vitamins and minerals, sprouting breaks down those anti-nutrients. As a result, iron, zinc, magnesium, potassium, calcium and folate may be better absorbed from sprouted grains than from their whole grain counterparts”

This is a great article for those looking who are interested in the flavour and texture benefits of sprouted ingredients. We are featured in this article pointing out “the popularity of these ingredients allows for an overall revolution to bring back whole grains to daily diets.” We truly believe sprouted ingredients can help to bring back the use of whole grains as a staple in food products, bakeries and home pantries. Sprouted grains not only offer less bitter flavor profiles and softer textures but potential nutrient increases and digestive ease.
