Essene bread vs Sprouted Wheat Bread.
I am strugglig to understand the difference? In the Typebase4 Index it states Type O’s can eat Essene but not the Sprouted wheat bread. Can anyone help carify this? they sound like the same thing. Many thanks :)

hi welcome!

make sure the sprouted wheat bread you buy is in fact 100% sprouted

some brands are adding gluten and whole wheat flour into the mix....
other oils and additives as well as gums might slip in as well

read read and read again....I carry with me a magnifying glass to be able to read the fine print......

Essene is not made like regular bread.  And the finished product resemble a brick more than a loaf of bread.  And it is made much in the same way as making bricks.

To make Essene you take sprouted grain mash it up up in a food mill or food processor.

Take the resulting mass and form it into a loaf or brick and fire it in a slow oven for 3 hours or so.

Note no yeast or other leavening agent is added to Essene bread.

A sprouted wheat loaf usually involves drying the sprouted grains processing them to make a flour and then adding leavening to make it look like regular bread.

Essene bread can be made with any sprouted grain, not just wheat.  The rating may be for an Essene bread using any compliant (for you) grain.

Maybe sprouted wheat is an avoid for you???.  

Also, as stated above, many commercially prepared sprouted grain breads have added gums, etc. that are not compliant...
