Sprouts For A Healthy Diet

As many of us are adopting healthier diets, sprouts are rapidly gaining popularity. From gourmet chefs to health-conscious individuals, everyone is turning to this Indian staple as they impart fabulous nutritional benefits and can be easily integrate into any diet plan. You can add them to salads, sandwiches, soups, stir-fries, and smoothies. Common Indian sprouts that are well-liked by all include –moong, moth, soy and chana. Each seed has a host of nutritional advantages; however, they are locked up by anti-nutrients. Anti-nutrients are plant compounds which may reduce the body's ability to absorb essential nutrients from pulses and grains. When pulses are sprouted, the dormant seed becomes a live plant and the anti-nutrients are discarded. Importantly, phytic acid, an anti-nutrient present in the seed, binds with calcium, iron, magnesium, copper, and zinc, making it difficult for these to be absorbed. Sprouting neutralizes the phytic acid as well as the enzyme inhibitors, which may also have an unfavourable effect on our body.
