    sprouted grain bread

    Shop Now
    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 donīt 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.
