Foodservice support we offer: We provide over 50 different organic sprouted products. Whole grains are transformed into a living food when they are sprouted. Sprouting increases the vitamins, enzymes, and minerals in grains and it breaks down a portion of the starches into simple sugars which also aids digestion. You can substitute sprouted flour for conventional flour cup-for-cup in most recipes. There are only subtle differences in low-fat recipes, such as in some yeasted breads that would require slightly more liquid than your original recipe lists. We are here to make your baking experience a pleasure. Peace, Love, & Sprouted Flour Power!
