  • sprouted grain bread

    At my local organic supermarket I bought sprouted grain bread with the only ingredient being sprouten grains. It tastes great and according to the website sprouted grains are gluten free. And since I don´t care about carbs this was an awesome find for me.
    But just to be sure I wanted to ask here if sprouted grains still contain something unhealthy like antinutrients.

      AHHH! Sprouted grains, unless they are gluten free grains (ie rice, quinoa, millet, buckwheat, teff, sorghum, etc.) are not always gluten free. Wheat, rye, barley, kamut and oftentimes oats (cross contaminated w/ wheat) are NOT gluten free, whether or not they are sprouted.

      Not primal. Better than straight up whole grains? Yes. Still containing antinutrients and lectins and phytates though...

          According to their website the sprouting process removes all gluten, the reason that they do not advertise it as glutenfree is because sometimes batches aren't 100% sprouten but 99.5% and then they still contain a tiny bit of gluten. Am I wrong to assume that sprouting does the same to all antinutriens?

              Before switching to primal, I used to eat small amounts of Ezekial bread, oatmeal, and brown rice. Interestingly, the sprouted wheat bread caused blood sugar spikes and episodes of reactive hypoglycemia much worse than the oatmeal or brown rice. In fact, worse than having gluten free candy or desserts.

                Sprouted grains are an absolute no-no for celiacs because they are often not actually gluten free. Even wheatgrass juice is off the acceptable list for the same reasons. Some companies like to claim gluten-free, but unless they use the ELISA gluten test on every batch, I wouldn't trust it. But even if they did, why would you want to take in all the other nasty stuff that is still in there?

                  Sprouting removes *some* antinutrients. Not all. And wheat, kamut, barley and rye contain gluten no matter what you do to them. Primal simplifies this by cutting them all.

                  I personally would not trust a company that states a product containing wheat is gluten free. But if you are not gluten intolerant and are going to eat bread as part of your 20%, this is prob a better option than whole grain bread. I'd peronally go for a tapioca/arrowroot starch bread instead if I *had* to have it. I'd rather eat steak.

                    Sprouted grain bread is deadly for some of us. I really am irate with the lies of being gluten free etc; many of the raw foodists state the same- not true. If you have celiac or Hashi's- stay away- run from sprouted bread as fast as you can. I'd rather eat a baked yam. Much tastier.

                      Primallady, I had someone try to tell me the same about spelt, that it was gluten free. They kept insisting that I eat it. I kept telling them, "I have celiac, I know what I can and can't eat." I hate it when people who don't get horribly ill from a food try to insist that you should just try it or that their version is somehow magically safe.

                        i took a look at the site, & it definitely doesn't say their sprouted bread is gluten free, simply that those with mild intolerance can often tolerate sprouted bread:

                        Any product that contains wheat (including semolina, durum, spelt, triticale, and kamut) rye, barley, or oats cannot be considered Gluten-Free. What is important is the sprouting process, through enzymatic activity, changes gluten to a more digestible or tolerable state. Many individuals with mild gluten sensitivities use sprouted products with no adverse side affects or allergic reactions. However each person’s individual constitution is different. We advise any person with gluten sensitivities including and in particular individuals with serious health conditions such as Celiac Disease to consult their physician before consuming any product that may contain gluten.
                        there's no way i could eat it, but maybe you can. frankly, if you insist on having bread, i'd stick with the almond bread, flax bread, or coconut bread that's out there:

                        coconut bread: http://nourishedkitchen.com/coconut-flour-bread/

                        almond bread: http://www.elanaspantry.com/gluten-free-bread-20/

                        flax bread: http://primal.simplysunshine.net/?p=230

                        the coconut bread is definitely more of a breakfast type, while the other two work for sandwiches. making it yourself is the only way to ensure a lack of frankenfoods.

                          You took a look at "the" site? How do you know what site I meant? I was talking about a Dutch website. And they say if the grains are fully sprouted they are gluten free. Not that I really care about a little gluten since I have no intolerance. The reason I want bread is because it is much quicker to make and doesn't create much dishes and because I don't do well on high fat (tried it for a long period). The bread alternatives you mentioned I can't get anywhere and making my own bread is WAY to much effort. Besides, flax and almond are a nono anyway in those proportions.
                          But it's good to know it still contains some anti-nutrients so for now only a few slices for lunch.

                            sorry, i assumed you meant the ezekiel bread company. i had no idea anyone else manufactured it.

                            but i definitely disagree - the biggest piece of the pb diet is to avoid grains. sprouted or no, those are still grains. almonds & flax are not. some people use lettuce or nori to wrap up for sandwiches - perhaps that a route you could try?
