Why Buy Sprouted Greens?

Legumes contain phytic acid, which can be difficult to digest. Sprouting neutralizes the phytic acid, which means more vitamins and minerals can be absorbed by your body as they’re digested. When you sprout lentils, you’re actually starting the germination process, which changes the composition of the lentils. Sprouting increases the amounts of vitamins and minerals in the lentils, especially B vitamins and carotene. You can find a wide array of sprouted legumes at our Monday (Sunshine Sprouts), Wednesday (Kowalke Family Sprouts), Thursday, Saturday and Sunday markets (Bolanos Sprouts).
