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.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
