Product Description:

Create balance and harmony in your body with easy-to-digest Essential Eating 100% Whole Grain Sprouted Wheat Flour from SHILOH FARMS.

The grains used to make this flour has been sprouted to increase the bioavailability of nutrients that lay dormant in whole grain. When whole grains are sprouted properly the germ cell is consumed by the endosperm and is no longer in a state that can become rancid. When the grain is sprouted, gently dried and milled under measured conditions, it becomes a stable, easy-to-digest whole grain flour allowing it to maintain its freshness and shelf life much, much longer than unsprouted flour. Enzymes, vitamins and minerals are released; starches and proteins are naturally reduced into the simple sugars, that are more easily absorbed into your body to provide your need for energy.

The Result: Essential Eating sprouted grain flour digests as a vegetable. Good digestion is key to good health. You’ll notice the benefits in no time and soon, you’ll be using SHILOH FARMS Essential Eating Sprouted Grain Flours in all your favorite recipes.

I used ground almonds for a softer texture, using the sprouted flour the end result was slightly darker than normal but the taste was a lot better well worth a try. It did not last long the kids loved it and freinds who tried it thought it was 100% better than using normal flour.

shiloh farms imagePrior to receiving the Shiloh Farms Organic Spring Wheat Sprouted Flour for review, I had only heard about sprouted grains, but honestly, I knew very little about them.  According to Shiloh Farms, the sprouting process creates grains that are more easily digestible for the body, and it increases the bioavailability of the nutrients in grain.  Sprouted flours can be used as a one for one substitute for regular flour, and I decided to test this by making a simple, frosted sugar cookie.  I wanted to make a simple baked recipe with few ingredients so that nothing would distract from the flavor of the flour.  I actually made a half-batch of sugar cookies with regular all-purpose flour and a half-batch with the organic sprouted flour for comparison.shiloh review

The differences between the two flours were apparent right out of the package. The sprouted wheat flour was darker and not as fine in texture as the AP flour.  After whipping up both batches of cookies, the differences, of course, become more pronounced.  The cookies made with the sprouted wheat flour were chewier in texture, whereas the cookies made with AP flour were lighter and cakier.   The cookie made with sprouted wheat flour also had a more complex taste, an earthier, nutty wheat flavor, than those made with the AP flour where vanilla was the dominant flavor.  Personally, while I enjoyed and actually preferred the flavor of the cookies made with the wheat flour, most of my family and friends preferred the cookies made with the AP flour.  I probably wouldn’t substitute the sprouted wheat flour in baked goods such as cookies and cakes where you want your vanilla and other flavorings to shine through, but I do think this flour would be great to use in less sweet baked goods such as breakfast goodies, like scones or waffles, or breads where its complex, earthier flavor and more substantial texture could really shine.
