Our Raw Organic Spelt Sprout Powder is a wonderful alternative to other cereal grain powders, which may be difficult for some individuals to digest. Spelt has a high bioavailability of nutrients due to its water solubility. Our Raw Organic Spelt Sprout Powder is a great source of iron, a host of vitamins and minerals, as well as protein and fiber.
Spelt originated in Europe and the Near East as a hybrid of two varieties of wheat. However, spelt has a much lower gluten content than wheat. Some research has even shown that there is no gluten in wheat. Either way, many people who have wheat intolerances find that they can more easily digest spelt.
- Good source of protein
- High in iron
- High in antioxidants
- Contains live enzymes
- Hydroponically grown
- 100% whole food
Nutrients in our Raw Organic Spelt Sprout Powder are extremely bioavailable due to the grain’s high water solubility. Spelt sprouts are more warming than other cereal grains and have a good reputation as an aid in strengthening the immune system.
Our Raw Organic Spelt Sprout Powder is rich in vitamins and minerals like Vitamins A, B1, B2, C, E, calcium, iron, potassium, and magnesium. Spelt is a great source of EFA’s (essential fatty acids), such as palmitic, stearic, oleic, and linoleic acids.
Spelt Sprouts also contain essential amino acids like tryptophan, cysteine, lysine, leucine, and methionine. Our Raw Organic Spelt Sprouts are abundant inphytochemicals, enzymes, and monopoly saccharides. Spelt Sprouts are nutritionally sound, containing high amounts of protein, crude fiber, and heart-healthy fats.
Why Sprout Powders?
Sprouted grains, legumes, and seeds are some of the most vitamin and mineral-dense foods on the planet. When the seeds are germinated, through their initial contact with water in the sprouting process, their nutritional content changes dramatically. They become higher in protein, lower in carbohydrates, and develop a host of vital live enzymes.
During the first few days of sprouting, a newly developing sprout is loaded with potential energy -- the life source necessary for the seed to grow. As the sprout grows and matures into a plant, this concentrated energy is diluted. The sprouts used for these sprout powders are sprouted only for a short period of time, and are harvested before they change from a sprouted seed to a young plant, at the exact time when they are at their maximum level of nutritional and enzymatic value.
At this point in the sprout's development, the Vitamins, minerals, and important phytochemicals are in their most potent form, and are in their most readily bioavailable state. Additionally, research has shown that for those grains containing gluten, at this stage the gluten content is reduced and is in a more easily digestible form.
After the young sprouts have reached this optimum level of development, they are harvested and slow-dried at low temperatures. Drying at low temperatures is extremely important so that the live enzymes in the sprouts remain alive. After the drying process, the sprouts are then gently ground into a fine powder.
Hydroponically Grown and Responsibly Harvested
Our Raw Organic Spelt Sprout Powder begins its journey from certified organic seeds that are carefully selected and guaranteed to be of the best quality in the industry. The sprouts are grown in a precision-controlled environment, high in the Rocky Mountains, where each small batch is micro-biologically tested and allowed to thrive in an oxygen-rich atmosphere.
Everything about the growing process is meticulously watched, from the temperature and moisture surrounding the plants to the lighting and air-quality. The sprouts are grown hydroponically by placing the delicate roots in a liquid nutrient solution, rather than in soil. This creates a smaller root for each plant, which means we can grow more sprouts in a smaller facility. Energy and overhead remain low, and we pass the savings on to you in the form of lower prices.
The sprouts are harvested at their highest nutrient density, and processed at low temperatures to preserve fragile enzymes and amino acids. We gently crush our air-dried sprouts into a powder, which tastes wonderful sprinkled onto salads and vegetables or mixed into beverages.
If cared for properly, the Organic Spelt Sprout Powder has a shelf life of up to two years. To preserve the freshness of this product:
