Sprouted Grains and the Gluten Free Diet … Questions and Comments

One reader’s comment: “I’ve had several people lately insisting to me that sprouted wheat and Ezekiel bread are gluten-free, and that the sprouting process does away with the gluten totally! But all I’ve been reading today tells me not to eat it, or to at least be suspicious!”

The Gluten Free Guy’s Response:. Here is the answer from ‘Food For Life’, the manufacturer of Ezekiel Bread (made from sprouted grains) as well as many foods that target America’s gluten free community.
“Q: Are Food for Life sprouted grain foods “gluten free”?
A: No. Food for Life breads contain naturally occurring gluten. However, our unique sprouting process activates enzymes, which naturally metabolize starch, carbohydrates and gluten protein. This may explain why so many gluten sensitive people may tolerate sprouted grains.”
