Does just thinking about the smell of the bread of times gone by make you feel better? Below are just some of the benefits of Biopan.
What is Biopan Fermented Grain?
Biopan Fermented Grain is an enzyme powder and a natural by-product of the Vitapan Plus bevanda di pane, or bread drink, (see product description) production process, which involves the controlled, lactic fermentation of wholemeal, organic bread made with wheat flour, rye, oats, sourdough, water and salt. The powder is obtained by sprouting the grains through a heat treatment and fermenting with lactic acid, and is therefore completely natural, beige in colour and enzyme-rich.
Use and mechanism of action
During the fermentation and acidification of the cereals the various nutrients contained in them are released and lactic acid is formed. These substances that have important functions within our body.
Lactic acid is important for maintaining the right level of acidity in the intestine. Therefore the lactic acid present in the Biopan in the right quantity, helps the organism in its physiological functions.
Suggested use: Biopan powder is easy and pleasant to use. Two teaspoons daily, sprinkled on soups and salads or added to sauces and meals give a slightly acidic and pungent flavour. Use as an alternative to the usual lemon juice or vinegar, which although acidic, are not fermented and do not therefore have the beneficial value of probiotics. The same amount of Biopan can also be added to yogurt, fruit juice or to the bevanda di pane Vitapan Plus bread drink.
Extra health advice: Boost your bowel and general well-being by using Biopan to prepare “savoury vegetables”, healthy naturally-fermented vegetables with a high probiotic content. Follow a few simple steps: thinly slice a carrot, a quarter of a white cabbage, a cucumber, or a vegetable of your choice, place it in a jar, add a pinch of salt (about 1% of the weight) and 1-2 teaspoons of Biopan. Mix, cover with a saucer then place a weight on top to squeeze the vegetable down. Leave for a few hours (6-12 or more, depending on how hard the vegetable is), and check now and again to ensure that the juice produced by vegetables covers it completely. Once ready, serve small amounts of the fresh savoury vegetables as a side dish. They can be stored in the fridge for short periods of time.
