Benefits of sprouts
Sprouts contain many vitamins, minerals, plant materials, fibers and polyunsaturated fatty acids. As the seeds germinate, the nutrient content increases. Especially vitamin C, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, niacin and vitamin E, as well as the minerals calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, and iron, are increasing. Sprouts contain high-quality protein but little calories. The degradation of complex carbohydrates to single sugars during sprouting reduces the bloating effect, especially of the pod fruits. The content of phytic acid, which reduces the absorption of some minerals, decreases.
