Other than relief for those suffering from Celiac disease or gluten allergies, are there any health benefits to sprouted grain breads? I grabbed a loaf yesterday, tastes good, and the macros and ingredients look good (no HFCS, sugar, honey, molasses, or other sugars added).

I don't know of any other health benefits (other than those you listed). I myself only eat sprouted grain breads, usually sprouted flax bread.

the sprouting involves soaking which removes most of the phytates

Those benefits alone make it worthwhile to eat them. I would hazard to say they're a bit easier to digest, but you probably won't notice the difference unless you have a particularly sensitive GI tract.

They actually tend to be somewhat more fibrous and harder to digest than regular WW bread, at least in my experience.

I tend to get a stomach ache whenever I eat them.

They are very low first-category on the glycemic index, and they are a complete protein. Eat away.

What about in relation to other whole grain breads? Regular whole wheat bread is very milled.

phytates can coat your small intestine and inhibit absorbtion

this is why the chinese *historically* never ate soy without fermentation,ie: tempeh, misu
