Chambers Creek Kitchen uses Nourishing Tradition principles to prepare our Gluten-Free products.  Making them as                 Deliciously Nourishing as possible!

It’s true that “Grains” provide us with over 20 known essential vitamins and minerals.  Unfortunately, whole grains and seeds can actually be detrimental to our health.  Whole grains have a protective type of barrier which includes phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors, preserving them until just the right conditions are present for them to grow.  However, untreated phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors in the grains and seeds can combine with minerals such as calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and especially zinc in the intestinal tract and block their absorption.

Wait!  There is a solution to this situation!!!!  Soaking these grains and seeds allows enzymes, lactobacilli and other helpful organisms to break down and neutralize phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors, present in all grains and seeds. Sprouting grains and seeds actually increases nutrient content, even creating vitamin C.  Proteins in grains, especially gluten, are very difficult to digest and can put an enormous strain on the digestive system, resulting in a host of health problems.

Our Soaking & Sprouting partially breaks down these proteins for easier digestion and better nutrient absorption.
