"Phytic acid not only grabs on to or chelates important minerals, but also inhibits enzymes that we need to digest our food, including pepsin, 1 needed for the breakdown of proteins in the stomach, and amylase, 2 needed for the breakdown of starch into sugar. Trypsin, needed for protein digestion in the small intestine, is also inhibited by phytate"
Ummm... *raises hand* Pick me?
