The miracle of sprouted ingredients: Everything you need to know

Sprouted ingredients are one of the healthiest and richest sources of nutrition. They are full of enzymes, proteins, vitamins and minerals that help promote health and vitality.

What is sprouting? Sprouting is a process in which raw materials - be it grains, seeds or legumes – end the "sleep" process and enter the sprout stage. During sprouting, various biochemical processes occur that significantly improve the nutritional value of the original raw material.

How often and in what form should we consume them? Read on to learn about all aspects of sprouted ingredients, including their nutritional benefits, methods of sprouting, and ideas for using them in your diet.


Sprouted ingredients are beneficial for our body for the following reasons:

HIGHER NUTRITIONAL VALUE. Sprouted ingredients are richer in nutrients than their raw form. Sprouting activates enzymes and increases the amount of vitamins, proteins and enzymes.

The most common vitamins are:

·         vitamin A

·         group B vitamins: B1-thiamine, B2-riboflavin, B3-niacin, B5-pantothenic acid, B6-pyridoxine, B8-choline, B9-folic acid

·         vitamins C, E and K

From minerals they contain:

·         potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, sodium, iron, zinc, selenium and copper

IMPROVING DIGESTION. Sprouting softens fibre and improves digestibility. The high fibre content contributes to the improvement of digestion processes and related metabolic processes.

ANTIOXIDANTS. Sprouting increases the content of antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids and potassium, which has a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system.

MAINTAINING THE CORRECT LEVEL OF SUGAR IN THE BODY. Sprouted raw materials may have an increased ability to regulate the activity of the enzyme amylase, which is used to break down and digest carbohydrates.

SUPPRESSES ANEMIA. Regular consumption of certain types of sprouted raw materials can ensure the necessary supply of iron and thus suppress anemic symptoms.

BENEFICIAL FOR WEIGHT LOSS. Sprouted raw materials have a low-calorie content, and a diet based on an increased intake of sprouted raw materials can help to lose weight and also to detoxify the body.

IMMUNITY SUPPORT AND ENERGY INCREASE. They are a great choice for the prevention of seasonal diseases, as they have a positive effect and strengthen the immune system.
