Sprouting is the natural process by which seeds or spores germinate and put out shoots, and already established plants produce new leaves or buds or other.
Sprouts are very nutritious. They may also offer a variety of health benefits, including easier digestion, improved blood sugar levels and a lower risk of heart disease. However, keep in mind that they are also associated with a risk of food poisoning.
Sprouts are rich in a number of important nutrients. While the specific ratio of nutrients varies depending on the type of sprout, they generally contain high levels of folate, magnesium, phosphorus, and vitamin K.
To keep bean sprouts fresh longer, keep them stored in a container of cold water. Keep them chilled until you're ready to get cooking.
