View Full Version : Berry Interested in Wheatberries
02-21-2010, 12:27 PM
Dear, Raw Foodies,
Someone in this forum mentioned preparing a recipe with ground wheatberries. I look forward to trying that!
Now, I am curious as to what it is about the ground wholewheat flour I buy that is not desirable for raw living? Is it because of the processing method?

welcome to the community!
do yourself a favor and go a whole month strictly not using any gluten products. Not even a tiny bit, not even a little in that soy sauce.
then go munch on whatever flour products you like. You'll probably at least get diarrhea. If you're like the majority of people, you'll get a strong inflammatory reaction.
The protein gluten found in white and wheat flour and spelt, rye, barley and possibly oats is a tough, scratchy protein for the digestion to break down. A lot of us find we do much better with it sprouted. some of us find we can't handle it even sprouted.
This isn't even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to info on this particular topic. But I try to get my fuel from fruit and more forgiving grains like quinoa. The most important way to learn is going to be experimenting yourself. It'll be quite a journey.

Thank you so very much!
I am pretty sure I can find wheat berry at the store where I find quinoa. I will sprout them and experiment!
And, I won't forget your encouragement! Some time later in my transitioning I will try toward a gluten-free diet! Thanks again.
