Sprouts are filled with many of the great benefits found in seeds and actually are healthier because the process of sprouting brings out many enzymes. They are full of fiber and also carry more protein, vitamins and minerals, as well as a lower proportion of starch, than unsprouted seeds. The starches are turned to simple sugars and are thus easier to digest. Sprouting your own seeds ensures that you have a readily available fresh supply of some of the most life-filled, vibrant nutrition on the planet! Sprouts are great in salads, on sandwiches, or anywhere else you'd like a crunchy fresh flavor!
Sprouting dates back as far as 5,000 years, when Chinese physicians used sprouts medicinally.
