Soaking is the first step to a green, energy-saving way of cooking grains. But did you know that this practice is beneficial to your health as well? Whole grains inhibit enzymes and other natural substances that interfere with the body’s absorption of the desired elements. Pre-soaking breaks down phytic acid, which allows the body to freely absorb the minerals and nutrients and makes the grains more digestible.
