TruRoots makes it easy to enjoy organic, gluten-free sprouted and whole grain blendsAi??with convenient, shelf-stable products
Livermore, CA (April, 2012)ai??i?? TruRoots, a leader in sustainably sourced, GMO-free whole grains and sprouted foods categories, applauds the Whole Grains Council (http://www.wholegrainscouncil.org) for highlighting the benefits of sprouted grains by noting them as their whole grain of the month for April. The company also notes that May is Celiac Awareness Month, making it an excellent time to build greater awareness for benefits of naturally gluten-free sprouted superfoods.
Sprouting grains increases many of the grains’ key nutrients, including B vitamins, vitamin C, folate, fiber, and essential amino acids often lacking in grains, such as lysine. In addition to boosting nutrition by increasing vitamins and micronutrients, sprouting activates enzymes to make those nutrients more available for the body to absorb.
