Q. What is the difference between Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour and Regular Whole Wheat Flour?
A. The sprouted flour is made from wheat kernels that have been sprouted and air dried before they are ground. The germ of the kernel has been dissolved and therefore the flour digests as a vegetable instead of a starch. When the flour is ground very fine it leaves your finshed baked goods lighter than regular whole what flour. Sprouted flour can be used as a one for one replacement to all-purpose flour in most recipes.
