11 Most Nutritious Seed for Sprouting

Sprouts are by far more nutrient dense than their mature plant versions. This is because a seed is not just a baby plant, it is also a tiny package of nutrients and enzymes ready to spring into action at germination. While types of sprouts vary, generally, studies show sprouting increases the quality and/or quantity of enzymes, digestible protein and starch, B-vitamins, and amino acids. But best of all, you can grow sprouts any time, even in the dead of winter, and most sprouts are ready to eat in 2-7 days!
