Sprouted is better! Sprouting is the centuries-old practice of soaking and rinsing foods until they germinate (or start to grow – i.e., sprout little tails). Sprouting makes the nutrients in foods much easier to absorb and far more beneficial.

Sprouted is better! Sprouting is the centuries-old practice of soaking and rinsing foods until they germinate (or start to grow – i.e., sprout little tails). Sprouting makes the nutrients in foods much easier to absorb and far more beneficial.

Product Notes:

We've all been told to ease up on the meat and dairy and eat more plant-based foods such as seeds, grains, legumes, and vegetables, but the problem is, many of them can be relatively hard to digest because they tend to have both insoluble fibres and protective factors which lock in their nutrients.

The sprouting process neutralizes those protective factors (such as phytic acid), which releases those nutrients, as well as enzymes which break down many of them (such as proteins and carbohydrates) so they're easier to absorb.

Three types of sprouted foods from Back 2 the Garden are currently on offer here – all of them organic; none requiring any additional presoaking or rinsing, most requiring far less cooking time than regular (non-sprouted) dehydrated versions.

Organic Sprouted Buckwheat

"Buckwheat" is a misnomer: it's not a type of wheat or a grass, at all; it's actually a flowering plant, akin to the rhubarb family, whose seeds (or 'grains') are high in B Vitamins, fiber, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and zinc. Thus, it's actually gluten-free, and perfectly suitable both for the gluten-intolerant and for those with full-fledged celiac disease.

Nevertheless, it can be used in many of the same ways as you would use either wheat or oats – boiled, as a breakfast cereal/porridge; baked, as a flour (after milling it), to make cookies, muffins, pancakes, or pasta; or roasted, to add to granola, or to serve as a crunchy salad topper. It can also be cooked in other ways or contexts, such as with mixed vegetables.

Organic Sprouted Chickpeas

Chickpeas (which are actually a type of bean, like black beans or lima beans, rather than a pea, and are also known by their Spanish name, "garbanzo" beans), are a pretty versatile food which can be boiled, roasted, or fried, which not only figures into several dishes such as hummus and falafels as the principal ingredient, but can also be integrated into soups, salads, "Buddha Bowls," or crunchy roasted snacks.

They're a good source of protein, very high in fibre, low in sodium and fat, and an excellent source of 8 essential vitamins and minerals.

Organic Sprouted Quinoa

Quinoa is a great food with a nutty taste that's high in fibre and in proteins and amino acids for muscle growth and repair, and is full of vitamins and minerals that are co-factors for good health, such as Vitamin E, magnesium, iron, phosphorous, copper and zinc... without being high in saturated fat. It's also quite versatile: it can be used as a breakfast cereal; as a side dish, like rice; or to add both nutrients and a rich flavour to casseroles, curries, soups, salads, or stews. Plus, it's gluten-free!

Ingredients:

Quinoa Grain. Made from select grain, cleaned and washed thoroughly, then sprouted and dried using their unique cold drying process to obtain a high nutritional product with all the natural nutrients intact. Non-GMO, Certified USDA Organic. Vegan, gluten-free. Contains no artificial ingredients, and there was no use of irradiation or high heat.

Suggested Usage:

Let the grains soak and then rinse them before cooking, to get a softer grain. Once rinsed, either add them raw to salads without further preparation, or put them in a saucepan and cover them in water and boil with the lid on for 10 to 15 minutes for soups, cereals, or other hot meals. It can also be added to desserts.
