After so many years of joining the gluten-free revolution; I still drool just by thinking of a warm piece of bread with butter.
When I decided to go gluten-free it was mainly because I needed to reduce inflammation in my body and because untreated wheat felt like a bomb in my stomach. Eating a piece of white, whole wheat, multi-grain bread and any other bread made with refined flours caused me to feel bloated and gassy. So I decided to give gluten-free a try and I’ve never gone back.
Although most of the breads, pastas and pastries I consume are gluten-free, I don’t condemn wheat that has been properly treated.
The process of sprouting reduced the levels of phytic acid found in these foods. When this acid is left untreated it can block the absorption of essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, copper, zinc and iron.
By Sprouting wheat you can minimize the nutritional inhibitors and maximize the health benefits.
This process increases vitamin C and B, helps breakdown complex sugars (which can cause intestinal gas), produces or activates enzymes to improve digestion.
Honestly, I am not a big fan of gluten-free bread because most of the ones I’ve tried feel a little chewy and the flavors are kind of limited. So whenever I feel like having a toast with a nice amount of butter I go for a slice of sprouted bread (I like the brand Ezekiel) or I preheat the oven to bake this delicious loaf of gluten-free onion bread. It is the easiest bread you’ve ever made. It’s as simple as blend, pour and bake!
After you give it a try, I would love to see what you think! 😉
