View Full Version : Sprouts

I just bought a spouting jar and some seeds. I was wondering, are sprouts nutritional in any way?

After I had finished sprouting the seeds, the directions told me to leave them in driect sunlight for 2-4 hours, or until desired "green-ness" is achieved. Does it matter how green I let them get?

WWhen they are green, they contain more chlorophyl. When they are not green, they contain more protein. Sproust are one of the most nutritious foods you could possibly eat! I must go to sleep now, but will post again tomorrow with more info. Happy sprouting! (what are you starting with?)

Cool! I had no idea they were that nutritious!

Hmm, I bought a package that had three different types of seeds in it. I know that I have radish sprouts, and maybe bean sprouts(?), but I'm not sure what the third type was.

Sprouts are really nutritious, i'm sure there is quite a bit of info on the web somewhere about the kind of nutrients a person can obtain from sprouts, i have a leaflet at home which says about various vitamin contents.

Here is a short introduction for people who are interested,

i'm now inspired to go sprout things. i just started soaking some barley so i can add some sprouted grains to my bread recipes. what else can i sprout and how can i use it? i don't have alfalfa seeds and such, just the basic grains and beans.
