I have a question regarding Essene bread (sorry if it has been asked before....)

I went to a health shop and found two kinds of Essene bread. One is made of sprouted wheat and the other one of sprouted spelt... Both wheat and spelt are avoids for Typ 0 non-secretors....

Does this means that both are not good for me?

On the web page of http://www.terrasana.com i did find a sprouted rye bread, i believe this bread is better for me, right? I just need to find out where I can buy it...  

Between sprouted rye bread and "normal" 100% rye bread, is the sprouted one better?

Thanks for your answers.
Regards,
n.

Sprouting destroys the lectin content. From the choices given, I would prefer spelt over wheat for the lower gluten content and also because the sprouting may not be 100%, etceteras.

The BTD rating for 100% sprouted would be here:

Thank you for the answer - I was just wondering as in the charts/ratings they always just mention Essene Bread without the sprouted grain type....  And for non-secretors spelt is an avoid, that's the reason I was confused.

I did not know that the sprouting destroys the lectin content....which I understand makes the bread acceptable.

However, if I can find the one with the sprouted rye, I will go for that one - just to be on the safe side

General Description:

With no pun intended, Essene bread is the very essence of simplicity. Its only required ingredient is sprouted grain, and you can easily sprout your own....

By definition, Essene bread is made from sprouted grain.

There are 2 potential problems related to wheat: WGA lectin and gluten.  Sprouting destroys the lectin, but the gluten remains.  If you are sensitive to ANY gluten, then you can't use wheat, spelt or rye - at least until you get the intestinal damage fixed and hopefully, the gluten sensitivity fixed with it.

You may have to experiment with the sprouted bread to make sure it is OK for you.

Sprouted wheat breads are neutral for O secretors but not for O non-secretors. I don't think O nonnies should be consuming any kind of wheat or spelt, not even if it's fully sprouted.

In general, sprouted grains are easier to digest than their non-sprouted counterparts. Therefore, the sprouted rye is probably a better choice than the non-sprouted rye. Etiher one would be neutral for an O nonnie. However, if you have celiac disease or extreme gluten sensitivity, rye needs to be avoided as well.

Ok now it's clear! thank you so much for the explanation!

Luckily I dont't have celiac diseases or any other illness. But I want to try to eat healthier! And I find it very hard to avoid wheat
