Hydro sprouts are simply beans, seeds, and grains which have been soaked in water and then rinsed twice daily for three to five days. Sprouting helps release all of the stored energy in the seed and make it available for digestion. As a result, sprouts are higher in protein and contain more available minerals, vitamins, and amino acids than non-sprouted beans, seeds, and grains and often more nutrients than mature plants. Sprouting also increases the fibre content by up to 300%! Many different sprouts are also attributed with disease curative and preventative properties, including helping to prevent heart disease and many strains of cancer.
Not only are they healthy but sprouts are also delicious and easy to include in your diet! Each sprout and blend has its own flavour and can be used in different ways. Add small sprouts to salads, sandwiches, and wraps, and add larger sprouts to chili, soups, pastas, and stir fries. All sprouts can be consumed raw and are easy to digest. Try experimenting with your sprouts and explore their wide variety of uses!
