Since Super Sprout™ Sprouted flours absorb more water than other flours, you may need to add 5-10% more liquid to your recipe and allow your dough to rest for about 5-10 minutes after mixing to let the dough absorb the water.

Is Super Sprout™ sprouted whole grain einkorn flour just "whole einkorn flour"? How can the consumer/baker tell the difference?
You cannot mistake Super Sprout™ sprouted whole grain einkorn flour for regular whole einkorn flour. Super Sprout™ Einkorn has:
- A different look – a uniform creamy tan color
- A different feel — very soft and silky fine with fewer visible individual bran particles
- A different taste — warm, nutty taste
- Better nutrition — micro-nutrients are enhanced and more bioavailable due to the sprouting process
- Better digestions — products ingest and digest easily due to the sprouting process and super fine grind
- Different performance — performs best at higher hydrations of 65-75% and has already accomplished the desired goals of a pre-fermentation step
- Different baked product – darker golden crust due to an increase in caramelized sugars
- Different shelf life – products are softer and stay fresh longer, naturally
How do I substitute Super Sprout™ Einkorn with other flour?
Use Super Sprout™ Einkorn in all your einkorn recipes as a substitute for whole einkorn flour. Simply substitute with a 1:1 ratio and add approximately 10% more water than your recipe calls for, adjusting based on what type of dough you are making.
If you don't have a favorite recipe, you can add it in as 20-50% of your favorite whole grain recipe and reduce mixing time. Einkorn protein is different from modern wheat and can't stand up to a lot of extra mixing unless you are blending it with high-protein whole wheat or white flour.
Try incorporating it in small amounts and gradually increase the ratio of Super Sprout™ Einkorn to get the best feel for how it works with your bread. More recipes are available here.
