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.
I am often asked by people at the gym "How do I lose fat from my tummy so my abs will show"
My standard answer: "Get drunk and find yourself a sharp knife"
350lb Incline Bench
285lb Push Press
the sprouting involves soaking which removes most of the phytates
holto is this a good thing or bad thing?

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.Originally Posted by manowar669
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.Originally Posted by _-_v_-_
