Essene bread is a very primitive form of sprouted grain bread. It is often eaten uncooked, or slightly heated, by proponents of raw foods. The Essenes, a Jewish religious group that flourished from the 2nd century BC to the 1st century AD, are credited with the technique and basic recipes for Essene bread, which is made from sprouted wheat and prepared at a low temperature. These two practices ensure the maximum possible vitamin content for this foodstuff. The sprouting also breaks down the lectins and other substances that some individuals may be sensitive or allergic to.
PURE LIFE started producing sprouted bread at Myocum, northern NSW in 1988.
In 1990 the operation moved down the road to coastal Yamba where it still operates as a family business.
Pure Life product range has increased from their original Sprouted Wheat loaf and our Sprouted Rye loaf to a total of eleven varieties. This has been achieved by the introduction of different grains and combinations of grains, plus the addition of dates and walnuts to two varieties to produce cake like loaves.
SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF
Gluten content is reduced by approximately 50%.
The acidic grain becomes an alkaline forming sprout.
Phytate which reduces the absorption of minerals is markedly reduced.
A high proportion of people allergic to a grain (not coeliacs) are able to consume the sprout or bread made from it.
Vitamin and mineral levels increase and they are easier to absorb.
Hard to digest complex starches are converted to natural sugars by the enzyme amylase making the sprout or bread easier to digest.
Fats and oils are converted into more simple fatty acids by the enzyme lipase.
Spouting produces vitamin C and increases vitamin B and carotene levels.
Sprouting changes the grain to a young plant which is more like a vegetable than a grain.
