Subject:         So what about sprouts?

Hi!

I am recently hearing a lot of mixed information regarding to sprouts..

1. "Sprouts are great for us because they have much more nutrients in them".. And then some will say that we don't need so many nutrients in one food, and that sprouts are too dense.

2. "Sprouts contain living enzymes, which are required for proper digestion". And then I'll hear that our stomach is way to acidic for these enzymes to survive, and we can only use enzymes made by our own body.

3. "Sprouts are the best way to get fresh organic food with no fear of chemicals (since we grow them in our kitchen)". Haven't heard nothing to contradict that so far.

4. "Sprouts are partially "digested" already, hence they are easier to digest". This I find makes sense, and it seems very similar to me to natural leavened bread, which is partially "digested" (fermented) by naturally occurring yeasts and bacteria. So even cooked grains, beans and seeds are recommended to sprout before (rice for example).

Can you please help me get a better understanding on this complicated sprout issue? Are they good or not?

Cheers!
