Ask the Chef: The Benefits of Sprouting

Posted by Support Boomity on May 25, 2014 11:30:35 PM


Q: What are the benefits of sprouting?

When you think sprouted, think “extra benefits!â€

Sprouting is a process in which seeds are germinated - aka “born†into a baby plant. They are enjoyed by health enthusiasts and culinary pros alike as a way to bolster nutrients, add unique flavor, and enhance visual appeal. You can certainly sprout at home in your own kitchen to create a mini-garden that grows all year with legumes, grains, nuts, and seeds. Since these foods' nutritional value multiplies when you sprout them (the density of vitamins and minerals shoot up while the calories remain low), this is one of the easiest and healthiest ways to get the nutrients your body craves.

To get started, you'll need to soak and rinse your seeds so they can begin to germinate. During this initial growth phase, proteins in your seeds break down into separate amino acids and complex starches break down into simple carbohydrates. As your sprouts prepare to grow into a full-sized plant, their nutrients begin to multiply rapidly, yet remain easy to digest.
