History & Benefits of Soaking Whole Grains:

When using soaked whole grains for cooking, you get so many more nutritional benefits from the grain than when they are in the form of flour. This is commonly known as activated grains.

This is because flour usually goes through more processes to achieve the finely milled form and put under high heat when milling. By using the grain form you are more likely to benefit from all the nutrients that the grain has to offer such as the fiber and nutrients in the germ and bran which are still present and are so beneficial to consume.

Soaking the grains overnight in warm water activates an enzyme called Phytase which breaks down phytic acid in the whole grains that binds together the minerals we need in the grain. The activation of phytase makes it easier for the body to absorb these minerals
