Sprouting legumes provide excellent nutritional values, whether you eat them raw as snacks or add them to side dishes or salads. Food to Live offers a wide variety of lentils, peas and beans for sprouting.

Health benefits of sprouting your own beans, lentils and peas

Sprouting your own beans, peas and lentils is a healthy alternative to buying them already sprouted at the grocery store, where you can’t always be assured of their freshness. 

Sprouted legumes provide essential nutrients such as vitamin A and B along with protein and fiber. Depending on the type of seed you choose to sprout, your new favorite snack food may contain magnesium, zinc, iron, copper, potassium, fiber, and manganese, as well as B vitamins (niacin, thiamin and riboflavin), and more. 

How to use sprouted legumes

Tasty sprouting legumes are often used in stir-fries with vegetables, rice or meat, or as an addition to a salad. Sprouting legumes are easy to digest, allowing more vital nutrients to be absorbed into the body. 

Some of the most commonly eaten sprouting legumes include soybeans, peas and mung beans, but Food to Live offers a long list of beans, peas and lentils that are perfect for sprouting — including adzuki beans, chickpeas, green peas, and many others, in both organic and conventional versions.
