Are The Probiotic Benefits In Sprouted Or Sourdough Bread Destroyed In The Cooking Process?

5 posts in this topic

I'd like to get more good bacteria into my diet, but I avoid dairy and I don't really like the thought of eating fermented veggies. Would sprouted or sourdough bread have the same benefits?

I think the sprouted grains would act more as a prebiotic rather than a probiotic. I could be wrong but I wouldn't look to the breads for your main source of bacteria. I'm not sure what your diet is but yogurt has healthy bacteria and if you are avoiding dairy there's coconut milk and almond milk yogurt out there now. Also it's not just fermented foods but pickled foods can also contain healthy bacteria. Pickles, miso soup, kombucha tea, kimchi are some other sources.

Yes, the probiotics are destroyed in cooking. But they've still reduced the anti nutrients and made the bread more digestible. Grains should be prepared in long fermentation methods, or sprouted.
