Alvarado St. Bakery makes their breads, bagels, buns, pizzas, and tortillas from sprouted whole wheat as opposed to flour. They take whole, organic wheat berries and soak them in filtered water until they “sprout” and begin to grow. This concept of baking dates back to biblical times when sprouted grains were used. This process naturally makes starchy grains easily digestible and more readily assimilated by the body.
Alvarado St. Bakery would never knowingly use GMO ingredients. (genetically modified) They are in support of the growing movement here in the U.S. that wants the government to insist that foods be clearly labeled if they are GMOs. (Products are not allowed to be labeled as such now.)
