    sprouted grain breads

    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
