Nice article. It even talks about the benefits of phytic acids. Not sure if this holds in O's, though..

Interesting. I don't know that I will make time to do anything with this right now. Maybe it is balanced out by other things in our diet?

I kind of don't think our ancestors did this to remove phytic acid from their quinoa....
"Soaked 12-14 hours, germinated 30 hours, lacto-fermented 16-18 hours, then cooked at 212 degrees F for 25 minutes"

I appreciate your sharing.
I need to hire a research assistant and chef to keep up with all this stuff!

Well, if you do like some of us do, you reduce the phytic acid, but not completely obviously.  So, it's kind of the best of both worlds.  In Swami Dr.D holds to the phytic acid is good for you side of the debate.  I think my stomach likes it when I soak my grains for 8-12 hours with some lemon juice.  So, I like it that way.

Great link TJ.

So do I. Soy has one of the highest contents of phytate of any legume. Wonder if their is another reason why it's an avoid on my SWAMI, other than it's a toxin
