Pure Life Essene Breads

Monday, March 06, 2017

We offer a wide range of tasty sprouted wholegrain breads all of which are great healthy alternatives to conventional breads.

Pure Life Essene breads are made from Australian grown Demeter certified biodynamic grains with no additives, preservatives, yeast, salt, sugars, flour or added gluten. Essene bread is the only health bread that uses no additives.

The sprouting process retains grain nutrients, increases vitamin and mineral levels which are vital in a healthy diet. Our sprouted wholegrain breads have many known health benefits due to their high-fibre and low-fat content.

The Problems with Processed Grains

The health benefits of grains are entirely dependent on how they are eaten. Refined, processed grains are stripped of most of their nutrients, as the bran and the germ are removed. When making white flour, over half of the vitamins B1, B2, B3, E, folic acid, calcium phosphorus, zinc, copper, iron, and fibre are lost.

Eating refined grains has negative health effects which can directly contribute to problems such as obesity, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, hyperglycaemia, and diabetes. As much as ten to twenty times more nutrients are found in sprouted grains compared to processed grains.

The Benefits of Sprouted Grains

When grains germinate, their nutritional content changes and the acidic grain becomes an alkaline forming sprout. Sprouted grains are high in protective antioxidants and encourage the growth of good bacteria in the stomach.

Sprouts, as well as being easily digestible, are a good source of fibre and protein, and are high in many vitamins and minerals. Sprouted grains are significantly higher in protein and vitamins, and their complex starches are converted into natural sugars.

Gluten content is reduced by approximately 50% during the sprouting process. Phytate, which reduces the absorption of minerals, is also markedly reduced. A high proportion of people allergic to a grain are able to consume the sprout or bread made from it. This does not apply to coeliacs. Difficult to digest complex starches are converted to natural sugars by the enzyme amylase making the sprout or bread easier to digest. Fats and oils are converted into more simple fatty acids by the enzyme lipase.

Spouting produces vitamin C while increasing vitamin B and carotene levels. The process changes the grain to a young plant which is more like a vegetable than a grain.
