What Is Sprouted Wheat?

What Is Sprouted Wheat? August 2016

Bread is an important food most everyone can enjoy. If you want to be sure that you are getting the healthiest and best tasting breads available, you need to know about Alvarado Street Bakery’ sprouted wheat breads.

What is sprouted wheat bread? It is bread made using a method of sprouting the whole grain to make the dough. The whole grain goes straight from the organic wheat farm to Alvarado Street Bakery where it is soaked and sprouted. The whole grain actually sprouts and then is made into our delicious recipes. Sprouting the whole grain improves the nutritional quality and adds to the digestibility of our breads, unlike breads made with processed flour only. People love the wholesome flavor and distinctive texture of our unique breads for well over 35 years.
