Question about possible acne-causing ingredient in ezekiel bread

Recommended Posts

I have been eating ezekiel bread and cereal for a while now, but I realized that it has organic sprouted soybeans in it. I know how soy can cause some hormonal problems for people cause of the estrogen and especially for me since I am a guy. But could this possibly cause breakouts? Their products are so good for you and I love em so much, so please let me know. Thanks.

I eat it and I don't have any problems. I think the big problem with soy is that it's processed in a non-traditional way that makes it bad for you. Sprouting it seems like a safe way to eat it. Remember that Asians have been eating soy for ages and haven't had all the problems that people claim soy causes.

That's about the lectins. Even soaked, fermented or sprouted, it still contains phyto-estrogens which may help some people and make others worse. But there probably isn't enough in a slice or two of bread per day to be a problem.

i'm not sure about the phyto-estrogens in the products but ezekiel bread breaks me out terribley. sprouted grain products are not for me. the bread is healthy so if your skin tolerates it i say eat up!
