Wheat Sprout Powder (Raw)
Wheat Sprout Powder (Raw)
Wheat has been nourishing civilizations for thousands of years. Originating in Asia Minor, its first cultivation contributed directly to the rise of the first city-states. Our Raw Wheat Sprout Powder takes the nutrition from this ancient cereal grain and delivers it to you in an easy-to-use powder that is enzymatically alive and loaded with essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients.
- Contains live enzymes
- Hydroponically grown
- 100% whole food
Our Raw Wheat Sprout Powder delivers all of the vital nutrients of wheat in a powder that comes directly from the young grain, at its peak of nutrition. Wheat sprouts are abundant in enzymes, and antioxidants, as well as essential amino acids like tryptophan, proline, methionine, arginine, and valine.
Many people consume wheat for its immune enhancing properties. Wheat sprouts have an even more potent supply of these disease-fighting phytochemicals than practically any other source. Our nutrient-dense Raw Wheat Sprout Powder is rich in carotene, and is a good source of Vitamins C and E.
Consuming our Raw Wheat Sprout Powder may help to reduce the risk of heart disease. Wheat sprouts are also known for their strong detoxification properties, and high amount of folic acid, which is essential for pregnant mothers to reduce the risk of birth defects in their unborn babies.
Why Sprout Powders?
Sprouted grains, legumes, and seeds are some of the most vitamin and mineral-dense foods on the planet. When the seeds are germinated, through their initial contact with water in the sprouting process, their nutritional content changes dramatically. They become higher in protein, lower in carbohydrates, and develop a host of vital live enzymes.
During the first few days of sprouting, a newly developing sprout is loaded with potential energy -- the life source necessary for the seed to grow. As the sprout grows and matures into a plant, this concentrated energy is diluted. The sprouts used for these sprout powders are sprouted only for a short period of time, and are harvested before they change from a sprouted seed to a young plant, at the exact time when they are at their maximum level of nutritional and enzymatic value.
At this point in the sprout's development, the Vitamins, minerals, and important phytochemicals are in their most potent form, and are in their most readily bioavailable state. Additionally, research has shown that for those grains containing gluten, at this stage the gluten content is reduced and is in a more easily digestible form.
After the young sprouts have reached this optimum level of development, they are harvested and slow-dried at low temperatures. Drying at low temperatures is extremely important so that the live enzymes in the sprouts remain alive. After the drying process, the sprouts are then gently ground into a fine powder.
More About Sprouted Wheat
Wheat sprouts are one of the richest sources of nutrients on the planet. They not only contain 20 amino acids, including all eight essential ones, they are packed with 12 vitamins, 13 minerals, and a package of enzymes that help repair damaged cells and protect against free radicals.
A Unique Source of SOD’s
Wheat sprouts are a rare source of a special compound known as Superoxide Dismutase (SOD). This enzyme is one of the most powerful defenses against chemically reactive molecules (free radicals) that damage cells. Free radicals invade the body through pesticides and herbicides, ozone contamination, nutritional deficiencies, injuries, UV gamma rays, and toxic metals. SOD acts as an antioxidant that helps the body to repair itself quickly. SOD has been known to slow the effects of aging and reduce inflammation in the body.
Another extraordinary compound found in wheat grass and sprouts is the enzyme P4D1, the first substance known to stimulate the repair of DNA molecules. P4D1 does two important things. The super enzyme makes it possible for diseased cells to heal themselves so that they can go on to produce “good” cells. Even more amazing is the fact that P4D1 has been shown in laboratory tests to eat through the protein sheath of cancel cells so that white blood cells can attack and destroy them.
Hydroponically Grown and Responsibly Harvested
Our Raw Wheat Sprout Powder begins its journey from certified organic seeds that are carefully selected and guaranteed to be of the best quality in the industry. The sprouts are grown in a precision-controlled environment, high in the Rocky Mountains, where each small batch is micro-biologically tested and allowed to thrive in an oxygen-rich atmosphere.
Everything about the growing process is meticulously watched, from the temperature and moisture surrounding the plants to the lighting and air-quality. The sprouts are grown hydroponically by placing the delicate roots in a liquid nutrient solution, rather than in soil. This creates a smaller root for each plant, which means we can grow more sprouts in a smaller facility. Energy and overhead remain low, and we pass the savings on to you in the form of lower prices.
The sprouts are harvested at their highest nutrient density, and processed at low temperatures to preserve fragile enzymes and amino acids. We gently crush our air-dried sprouts into a powder, which tastes wonderful sprinkled onto salads and vegetables or mixed into beverages.
If cared for properly, the Wheat Sprout Powder has a shelf life of up to two years. To preserve the freshness of this product:
