Why Sprouted Grains are Great!
Sprouting aka soaking seeds/grains helps release nutrients, makes them easier to digest in our bodies. The majority of the nutrition in seeds, nuts and legumes are locked up until you initiate the growing process by soaking them. That's why so many bread and cracker company's products are nutritional zero's, even the "healthy" ones have processed all of the unused valuable nutrients.
Benefits of Soaking
- Releases nutrients like vitamin B12, zinc, iron, b-vitamins, and magnesium
- Eases digestion by decreasing anti-nutrients and phytic acid (even those with gluten sensitivities have been able to absorb and digest with ease)
- Increases protein and fiber content
