Created for people with a healthy outlook on life, our Sprouted Grain selection was established in late 2005 to manufacture a range of breads made from organic whole grain.
The sprouted grain method allows us to avoid flour and replace it with the whole grain. This process took a number of years to develop and is the first of its kind in Australia.
Why Sprouted Grain?
No Need For Flour
When we tell people that we make bread without flour they can't comprehend the idea. In recent years bread has been made as quickly and conveniently as possible with only secondary thoughts to nutritional value.
Most of the bread consumed today is highly processed with fat, sugar, preservatives and other additives. In addition to this, the milling process used to extract the flour from the grain removes most of the bran and germ. The heat applied during milling also destroys many of the natural vitamins and minerals, so a great deal of the real nutritional benefit is either thrown away or destroyed by heat.
A large amount of processing takes place before the bread is even made. This is unnecessary!
By sprouting the whole grains we don't need to use flour and can retain and enhance all of the nutrients while still being able to make a delicious loaf of bread.
Improved Nutritional Value
It has been said that the nutritional benefits of sprouted grain bread are many, with the secret of the sprout being its astounding nutritional content. Sprouting of the grain significantly increases the protein, vitamin and enzyme content of the breads whilst complex starches in the grain are converted to natural sugars, providing an easily digested rich energy source. When people with wheat intolerances try sprouted grain bread they often find their digestive system accepts the sprouted grains without any problem.
Many people who have not been able to eat bread for years find sprouted grain bread easy to digest.
A large amount of scientific evidence supports the following benefits of eating whole grains:
- Protects against heart disease and stroke
- Assists with weight control
- Reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes
- Improves bowel health and regularity
- Lowers cholesterol and blood pressure
- Protects against certain cancers
- Offers benefits of low glycemic index
