Alvarado Street Bakery makes a variety of sprouted wheat bread products but one of its most interesting varieties is the Sprouted Wheat Hemp & Hops Bread.
The vegan-friendly bread is made with a base of sprouted organic whole wheat berries, as well as a multi-grain and seed mix containing all-organic rolled oats, millet, cracked wheat, corn meal, rye, sunflower seeds and flax seeds. Seeds can also be found in the product in the form of hulled hemp seeds, as well as quinoa—which is officially a seed that's included in a group of pseudocereals.
The Sprouted Wheat Hemp & Hops Bread features minimally processed grains, which makes it easy to digest, a source of long-lasting energy and better for stabilizing blood sugar levels. According to Alvarado Street Bakery's director of sales Jim Canterbury, the benefits that sprouted grains provide help to override the negative perception of carbohydrates in bread.
