Where would Ezekiel bread & sprouted sourdough fall as far as FP? I noticed there are also sprouted tortillas, buns, etc.JIParticipantApril 24, 2014 at 9:40 pmPost count: 180
Using values I found online (not guaranteed to be accurate), here is the formula for figuring our the FP for one slice of Ezekiel 4.9 original bread.
Glycemic Index = 36
Fiber = 3 grams
Carbohydrate = 15 grams
Formula: (100-36) x 15 divided by 100, then add grams of fiber (3) and sugar (0) to get the FP.
The estimated answer for FP is 12.6 per slice. You are much better off using a French baguette or Middle Eastern flatbread (Naan), at an FP of 1 per 30 grams. It is a good idea to get a food scale that measures grams and ounces.Norm RobillardKeymasterApril 25, 2014 at 1:46 pmPost count: 445JaemeParticipantApril 25, 2014 at 4:59 pmPost count: 348
I have been able to tolerate sprouted oatmeal (1/4 cup dry). Supposed to have less starches, as those are used up by the seedling for energy to sprout? Oats may be easier to digests than the foods Simply6 listed above, which are wheat and other higher fp grains?
