Sprouted Grain Bread?

8 posts in this topic

A friend at work had a couple slices of this today and let me taste it. Tasted like regular bread to me.

They're touting this stuff as "Wheat Free" sort of. They claim that by sprouting the wheat, it breaks down the Gluten and people are then able to digest it. Anyone heard of this and what do you think.

Oh, yeah, sorry I haven't checked in for a while. I'm doing fine. Jerry

Here's a link to the product, which I meant to insert in the original message.Silver Hills Sprouted Grain Bread

It's called Ezekiel Bread, and it is not gluten-free!!!! You can read about it at the Ezekiel Bread website. They also make gluten-free bread and do not claim Ezekiel Bread to be gluten-free. Apparently the sprouting of the grains makes the bread healthier and easier to digest for those who can eat gluten.

Hope you get lucky and don't feel bad from it!!

Edit - the brand you posted is a different brand from the one I mentioned. But if it has wheat, barley or rye, the one you had still is not gluten-free.

Actually, sprouting converts starch into sugar. If the gluten were truly broken down, it wouldn't make good bread. It's the gluten that gives wheat bread those nice characteristics.

WHEAT FREE?

Yes and no. We do not use wheat in the conventional manner. We sprout it! Wheat and sprouted wheat are two completely different foods, and that is why hundreds of wheat hypersensitive people are enjoying bread once again! Sprouting the grain turns it from an acid to an alkaline base or more digestible food, and a powerhouse of enzymes and nutrients are released by the malting or sprouting process. We recommend that you first consult with your health professional.

If only it were so easy, alkalinize your diet and gluten problems are gone!

GLUTEN

Gluten, the sticky to digest wheat protein, breaks down during germination. This may be why hundreds of wheat-sensitive customers are enjoying our breads. See Alive Magazine Feb/March '98 issue for an article entitled "Sprout Route"

One article in the past 8 years? One whole article?

Before discovering my gluten issues, I made a naturally leavened sprouted rye bread that was unbelievably good. Sigh.

On the website you posted they said they add back 1% (% of what I do not know) of wheat gluten to get the consistency of the bread. This 1% does not appear to be sprouted, which still would not make it okay.

Pretty misleading and crummy that they would make such a big deal about sprouted grains eradicating natural gluten content in the grains and then add it back in each recipe anyway (look at the ingredients of their products). That's a dirty trick on top of being completely wrong.

Grrrr, there really should be a law against that sort of misinformation! Mind you, I wish it were true... used to love sprouted wheat bread.

I am so in agreement with this skbird. It is so deceptive and quite a tease might I add. Why bend over backwards trying to convince the public how the process eliminates Gluten if they are going to reintroduce it anyway? It's like kid's breakfast cereals that the process has destroyed the vitamins so they spray it back on anyway. :P

I SO hankered for this concept (sprouted=gluten-free) to be true! I was raised hippie-ish and cruncy granola-ish, I used to knead & bake my own breads while dreaming of an Earth Mama lifestyle.

What a fly in the ointment Celiac disease turned out to be.

Now I do bake in my machine often from recipes often from mix (the latter not truly qualifying as homemade in MY crunchy definition)

But I do truly yearn for healthy bread.... NOT just bread that is healthy for me because it doesn't make me ill!

I am tired of all the white starchy flours...and missing whole grains and sprouted grains. All the "whole (gluten-free) Grain" substitutes in the world never seem

"whole grain" enough for me! :(

Love & Light,

Tee

    • Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have!  As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already. 
    • Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any. In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables.  As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.
    • What did you drink and where did you drink it?   NOTE if you drink something at a bar using their glasses your asking for trouble BEER IS EVERYWHERE in most bars and a CC hell.   If it was at home and a non grain based liqour then I would be really concerned that it might just be alcohol. I personally can not really drink much of anything any more. I love rum, and I cook with it sometimes in sautes. I also have rum extract/butter rum extract/and rum emulsion I use in shakes, homemade keto pudding/ mixed into dishes. and even add some to drink to give it a rum flavor lol.
    • I can only think of two things, 1 something you put on your potato was contaminated like the butter container could have crumbs in it or something like that as mentioned before, and you could be having a reaction to dairy or what ever was put in it.......IF it was just plain potato and you reacted with bloating and cramping you might have a carb issues, tad rare and most associated with additional auto immune diseases but could be in which case a diet of fats and protein would be your answer much like it is for me now days. What all have you eaten in the privous 8 hours including beverages, condiments, spices and foods?
    • They are gluten-free.  Did you use butter that might have gluten crumbs on it?  For me , it takes more than 2 hours to feel the effect of gluten- maybe something you ate before?  Maybe  stomach virus?
