In today’s video, we will be discussing the subject of sprouted grains and if they are really healthy. I’ll cut right to the chase. My answer is: sometimes and in moderation.
There are three reasons sprouted grains are better than regular grains:
1. Phytic acid is in regular grains, which is an enzyme inhibitor. (If you soak the grains, the sprouted grains unlock the nutrients that your body can absorb.)
2. Gluten in protein becomes more digestible.
3. Regular grains are high in carbohydrates, specifically a type of carbohydrate called amylopectin. Amylopectin affects blood sugar levels and can increase your risk of diabetes.
Overall, sprouted grains are the better option, but it’s still not perfect or what I would consider a healing food. If you’re struggling with an autoimmune disease, removing grains for a while would allow your body to heal. In general, if you can limit your intake of grains to just a couple of times of week, in moderation, you will be consuming a healthy diet.
