Questions About Lectins

Sprouting Away Lectins


QUESTION

On page 157 of your book, you mention that the problem kernel in wheat is destroyed in the sprouting process. Does sprouting render other foods beneficial, or at least "not harmful"? I am a Type B and am wondering about sprouted beans and lentils, as well as sprouted sunflower and pumpkin.


ANSWER

Sprouting destroys wheat germ agglutinin, but other seed lectins are not always inactivated this way.




The Ask Dr. D'Adamo internet advice column ran from 1996 to 2009, at which time Dr. D'Adamo's teaching and programming responsibilities no longer allowed him to devote time and resources to directly answering visitor questions. However we've recently reorganized this treasure-trove of material and made it again available to his readership. He occasionally posts new entries. These are marked with a NEW tag.
