Give Sprouted Grains a Try

 In HCYHealthy

What is a sprouted grain?

A sprouted grain is a whole grain. It’s a germinated seed – between a seed and a new plant – and it has many benefits.

Sprouting alters the nutrient composition:

  • Increases essential amino acids
  • Increases fiber
  • Increases iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, and folic acid
  • Increases antioxidants and phytochemicals

Sprouting can also make grains more easily digestible for people with gluten sensitivity (NOT celiac disease).

Sprouting offers a nutty, earthy flavor to grains.

While sprouted grains have many benefits, it’s still most important to choose whole grains (sprouted or not!) rather than refined grains (white rice/pasta, white flour, etc.).

Try adding some sprouted grains to your diet this week!
