OK, i know that one is made of sprouts and the other made out of the grain ..duh! But do they digest the same way, are the same nutrients released, etc.<br><br>
Is sprout bread better in some way? Is there the same amount of gluten? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:"><br><br>
I'm asking b/c whole wheat bread seems to make me bloated and itchy when i eat a lot. In thoery, would sprouted wheat bread have the same affect?

Well, I don't know about bloaty and itchy (Is that a new cartoon team? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">), but sprouted wheat is healthier and more easily digested. However, there is a school of thought that believes that cooking sprouts defeats the purpose! Why sprout what you will kill with baking? Anyway, apparently, you *do* benefit, even if just a bit more, from sprouted cooked foods. Same with beans.<br><br>
Now, if using the sprouted berries raw, definitely, yes, there is a great deal of benefit. Have you ever tried raw bread? That is very healthy.<br><br>
So, I don't know if itchy and scratchy would drop by for a visit if you ate sprouted wheat bread <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I love sprouted wheat tortillas. They have a better flavor that regular whole wheat, that's for sure!

According to <a href="http:" target="_blank">www.alvaradostreetbakery.com,</a> "The sprouting process naturally converts starchy grains into easily digested maltose and other complex sugars. There is an enzyme created during germination that beings to "pre-digest" the grains, thus, making the grains and their nutrients and vitamins more readily assimilated."
