What exactly IS sprouted wheat flour, anyway?

Our sprouted wheat flour begins with whole wheat berries, the seed from which a new wheat crop can be grown. The berries are misted with water, then briefly allowed to sprout in a controlled environment: just until the sprout cracks the seed's bran layer. These sprouted seeds are dried, then milled into flour.

How do you bake with sprouted wheat flour?

Sprouted wheat flour behaves similarly to whole wheat flour in baking. We recommend substituting it 1:1 for whole wheat flour; or substituting it for 50% of the all-purpose flour in your recipe.
