My wheat doesn't sprout
I have some very old wheat that was passed to my husband and I from his parents, which they acquired new in about 1970 or so. I have ground it and baked bread with it many times and have always been happy with the results. I recently tried sprouting some of it, and after 5 days of nothing, I finally threw it out assuming it wouldn't sprout if it hadn't by now. My question is, if the wheat doesn't sprout, does that mean there is no nurtitional value to it (aside from calories, I guess)? I have searched this forum and the web for an answer but haven't found anything yet, so I really appreciate anything anyone has to offer.
