I'm so excited to hear how you sprout beans with dehydrater. I have made two of Tosha's (Eating Clean) sprouted breads and I didn't have a clue how to sprout beans. I accomplished it on my own but never thought of a food dehydrator. Can you give us instructions. Thanks!

Gotta comment on this one...sprouted grains are SO healthy! I found this definition a perfect reason to choose sprouted bread any time there is the opportunity...

The sprouting process naturally converts starchy grains into easily digested maltose and other complex sugars. There is enzyme activity created during germination that begins to "pre-digest" the grains, thereby making the grains and their nutrients and vitamins more readily assimilated by the body.

I really try to keep my raw intake high, and LOVE using sprouts in a lot of ways (breads, crackers, etc...made in the dehydrator) and it is awesome to eat "Live" grains.

I'm not positive, but I have assumed that it is because it is less processed, since the grains hasn't been ground into flour.

OK, I have gotten pretty far in eating clean over the past year and just got around to trying sprouted bread. I know that some of you probably know a lot and can explain to me why we should eat sprouted instead of just whole grain?

Thanks in advance...
