Description & Nutritional Value
Sprouting is simply the best way to prepare grains. It activates enzymes, improves amino acid and vitamin content, releases anti-nutrients and improves digestibility. We enjoy the chewiness of our sprouted barley and add it to a variety of dishes from soups and stews to salads, and sprouted cereal bowls topped off with homemade almond milk.
