Sprouting is Key

Black rice supports your health and well being, because of the tremendous benefits of sprouting grains. Sprouting food matters and that is what separates Simply Perfect Powder from black rice, or even black rice powders. We sprout our black rice, which supports easier digestion and the absorption of more nutrients.

Whole grains are simply seeds that are waiting to grow. All of the nutrients of a seed are stored inside and are waiting to allow the seed to come to life. Once the seed starts to sprout, the nutrients are more readily available, and when consumed by humans, they are easier to digest. This is because sprouting also breaks down antinutrients, which increases the bioavailability of the vitamins and minerals in the foods you consume.*

One of the key antinutrients that sprouting breaks down is phytate, a form of phytic acid. The human body is unable to digest phytic acid and it can inhibit the absorption of key nutrients and minerals (1). People with digestive issues can be negatively effected by seeds and grains because of the inflammatory chemicals, like phytic acid. The way to neutralize these antinutrients is to sprout seeds and grains (2).*

Phytic Acid has also been linked to reducing the enzymes you need to digest food, namely, pepsin, amylase and trypsin. These enzymes help break down proteins, starch and they aid in digestion (3). Another benefit of sprouting grains is the breakdown of starch which also allows grains to be easily digested (4).*
