    Question soaked grains = good bread?

    Shop Now
    So I heard yesterday that there was a difference between bread today and bread from 2000 years ago. Apparently 2000 years ago people would soak their grains before grinding them and making bread. Soooooo..... Not that I would ever put bread back in my diet, but would making bread from soaked grains be more acceptable to the human person than what we do today? Would there be a nutritional value to it?

    Yes if it is soaked and fermented is MUCH better.

    Now if this could get out into mainstream then food manufactores could start doing this which would increase health in the general population (although not nearly as much as living the PB lifestyle)

    Much better, but closer to neutral than good.

    And the wheat back then was genetically different as well.

    Not saying soaking is a bad idea, just that soaking isn't the only thing that was different.
