Sprouted grain whole wheat bread....

Ok.....I'm almost in Noord-Amsterdam! Any place to buy this type of home made bread.....the sprouted grain whole wheat bread......this ain't your typical whole wheat bread as it is made with no grain.....hippie food. I shall be near a Landmarkt ( http://www.landmarkt.nl/ ) in Schellingwoude, but I can't imagine them having this labor intensive type bread. Buy the best and weep once.....once you've eaten a sprouted grain bread, it's really difficult to return. Since I'll be all about Amsterdam Centruum, no point in not picking one up if I know where such a bakery might be? Anyone?! Thanks.........

I hadn't heard of it before, but the Dutch translation seems to be 'tarwekiembrood' or 'gekiemd brood'.

Perhaps one of these shops will have it? http://www.natuurwinkels.nl/amsterdam

Perhaps on Noordermarkt organic market on Saturdays, but be sure to have the Dutch translation handy. I had never heard of that English term and the translations in post 1 don't ring any bells but I'm no expert on hippie bread :-) so they may be correct, just quite rare here.

It's not the same as 'spelt', is it? Hartog sells that. www.volkorenbrood.nl/pagina/assortiment

so if you dont get this special bread and have to eat regular wheat bread, will it ruin your trip?

I totally get your addiction. I always enjoyed that kind of "bread" in Europe. Once I stayed at the Pulitzer and had their sort-of granola with whole sprouted wheat berries and I was hooked. It was just nuts and wheat berries! I would have it delivered to my room, soak it in yogurt for an hour while I went back to sleep and Voila, an hour later it was fab. My jowls ached because it was tough to chew, how weird, right! But I was in heaven. Sadly, I could never find it in any shop... Now I am Celiac and it is just a fond memory...
