Increased Digestibility – Sprouting breaks down starches in grains into simple sugars so your body digests them more easily.
Increased Absorption of Minerals – Sprouting breaks down enzyme inhibitors, like phytic acid and lectin so your body can more easily absorb nutrients.
Increased Antioxidants – Sprouting releases natural antioxidants that are naturally stored in the grains and seeds.
Increased Vitamin and Mineral Content – Sprouting helps to increase vitamins and nutrients and can help lower the glycemic index found in grains.
