Sprouting Nuts and Seeds and Why

Posted on February 19, 2018 at 9:10 AM
Sprouting is the act of germinating a seed. This makes the nuts and seeds more easily digestible and allows for you to absorb all of the nutrients available. Seeds and nuts also have naturally occuring "anti-nutrients" aka enzyme inhibitors, phytic acid, polyphenols, and saponins. These are necessary for the seeds and nuts so that they do not prematurly germinate but they can cause problems when digestion occurs. Sprouting increases the digestibility of many of the components of seeds making them higher in fiber, protein, B12, Magnesium, and Zinc. 

The process of sprouting is super simple. You simply take your nut/seed and soak them for the required amount of time followed by time with the nut/seed staying moist but also aerated. The second step allows the seed to germinate and will produce a small tail like in the picture above.
