Sprouts are truly a miracle food. You can grow them almost any time and any place on only water, air and sometimes a little sunlight.
Pre-industrialized cultures soaked, sprouted or fermented their grains, seeds and nuts. These simple preparation methods neutralize the phytic acid found within the hull, which blocks the absorption of important nutrients; remove tannins; neutralize enzyme inhibitors while encouraging the production of beneficial enzymes; and increase vitamin content. Hahn will teach you the basics of these traditional food preparation techniques to make delicious, nutrient-dense foods at home.
