Sprouts rank as the freshest, most nutritious of all vegetables available to the human diet. By a process of natural transmutation, sprouted foods acquire vastly improved digestibility and nutritional qualities when compared to the seeds (embryo) from which they are derived. Sprouts have been part of the diet of many ancient races for thousands of years as the sprouting process presents your digestive system with highly available vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other plant nutrients (phytonutrients) which, also present in seeds, are not readily available to the body.
Many different plants are sprouted. These include legumes, cereals and grains.
The main benefit of sprouts in human nutrition is the incredible increase in bioavailable proteins, vitamins minerals and enzymes, resulting from the sprouting process. Essentially, as the seed germinates, it uses up its energy (calories and carbohydrates) to produce the basic elements which will enable the plant to grow into a viable adult plant which will be able to produce seed at the end of the cycle. It follows then, that sprouts have a higher protein, mineral and vitamin content than seeds, while having a lower calorie and carbohydrate count. These changes in the nutritional profile can be seen in the results of experiments done in the USA:
|Energy content – Calories||Decrease 15%|
|Total carbohydrate content|
|Protein availability||Decrease 15%|
|Calcium content||Increase 30%|
|Potassium content||Increase 34%|
|Sodium content||Increase 80%|
|Iron content||Increase 690%|
|Phosphorus content||Increase 40%|
|Vitamin A content||Increase 56%|
|Thiamine or Vitamin B1||Increase 285%|
|Riboflavin or Vitamin B2||Increase 208%|
|Niacin or Vitamin B3||Increase 515%|
|Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid)||Increase 256%|
The increase in protein availability is of great significance, as it is the benchmark indicator for the nutritional value of a food. During sprouting the carbohydrate molecules are broken down to allow the absorption of atmospheric nitrogen and the synthesis of amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, and the resultant proteins are the most easily digestible of all proteins available in food.
The dramatic increase in the sodium content supports the view that sprouted foods are nutritionally superior to other foods. Sodium is essential to the digestive process within the greater intestinal tract, and also the elimination of carbon dioxide. Together with the remarkable increase in vitamins, sodium has a material contribution to the digestibility of sprouts.
The main benefit of sprouts in human nutrition is the incredible increase in bioavailable proteins, vitamins, minerals and enzymes, resulting from the sprouting process.
Dried grains and seeds do not contain discernible traces of ascorbic acid. Yet when sprouted they exhibit significant quantities which are essential to the body’s ability to metabolise proteins. The infinite increase in ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) is derived from the absorption of atmospheric elements during growth.
In addition to the above benefits, a number of biochemical processes enhance the bioavailability of sprouts. The sprouting process breaks down the enzyme inhibitor which is found in seeds. This allows the activity of enzymes such as amylase and lipase which simplify the sugars, proteins and fats to enable easier digestion. Furthermore sprouting reduces oligosaccharides by 90%. They are responsible for the gas producing qualities of seeds.
The special production process used by our producer ensures that none of the intrinsic nutritional properties of the original sprout are lost or reduced. When the (sprout) powder is reconstituted in body fluids, all of the original plant nutrients (the enzymes, minerals, vitamins and sterols/sterolins) are present and are over 95% bioavailable.
