Feeding Sprouts verses Soaked Seeds
When any seed, nut grain or legume is germinated - and allowed to grow - this is described as sprouting. During the sprouting process the entire chemical composition changes. Soaking initiates germination. For the sprouting blend to develop its maximum level of nutrition the general rule is that it must be allowed to grow for at least two to three days. During this time vitamins are generated, proteins present are broken down into their basic amino acids, minerals become chelated making them easier to assimilate, starches are converted into simple sugars, and fats are transformed into water soluble fatty acid components. This two to three day growing process is what enhances the digestibility and peak nutrition of the sprouting blend. During this sprout growing process life enhancing enzymes are created. These enzymes induce hundreds of thousands of biochemical processes in the body and facilitate digestion. There are a few exceptions to this sprouting process guideline.
