Can Someone Explain Sprouted Grains?

Recommended Posts

I have heard that sprouted grains are OK but I have doubts. What changes when a grain sprouts? It's still gluten, isn't it?

You do not want to eat sprouted gluten grains. They are not safe.

There was a discussion about sprouting gluten free grains. I think it is to make them easier to digest. But it also changes the properties for cooking purposes too. I'm too tired to remmebr how, but I will try to find that thread. Some people that are not celiacs (just slightly gluten intolerant or doing this as a fad maybe?) claim to be able to tolerate sprouted wheat, but NO WAY would I try it. Even if you don't react you could be doing some damage.

Okay I guess I shouldn't respond when I'm tired. I was thinking about this thread on SOAKING Gluten free grains:

Not the same as sprouting I guess. Sorry.

Here are some past discussions of sprouting:
