Sprouting foods is the ultimate vegan or vegetarian staple food because of their high levels of nutritional value. It’s been proven that sprouts carry abnormally high levels of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients when compared to fully grown foods.
Sprouts contain very high levels of protein that are easily absorbable and digestible (plant based proteins).
Sprouts contain more calcium, potassium, iron, sodium and Vitamins A, B1/2/3 and C when compared to their fully grown counterparts.
By soaking nuts and seeds (which is the start of a sprout germination process), you can lessen nutritional depletion and remove toxins. This process can also remove phytates that inhibit the absorption of iron, zinc, copper, magnesium and calcium.
Sprouting peas can yield 800% more Vitamin C then fully grown peas.
Sprouting broccoli (after just 3 days) can yield up to 50 times more phytonutrients than consuming a mature broccoli spear.
Sprouting alfalfa grains contains more natural chlorophyll than mater parsley, kale, spinach or cabbage.
Of course, you can find microgreens and organic sprouts in any health food/organic store. However, it is just as easy for you to grow your own sprouts. It’s clean and simple to do. Plus sprouting is economic considering the high nutritional value of food you get for your dollar.
