Sprouts Omelette:(Weight Loss by following Keto Recipe)
The sprouting process increases nutrient levels, making sprouts richer in protein, folate, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese and vitamins C & K. Several studies show that sprouting helps increase protein content. Sprouts tend to contain higher levels of essential amino acids, with certain individual amino acids, increasing by as much as 30%. Peptides are produced in high concentrations, when seeds sprout and this helps to build a muscular body and control BP. Studies have shown that peptides reduce the risk of cancer. Proteins in sprouts may be easier to digest as the sprouting process appears to reduce the amount of anti nutrients- compounds that decrease the body’s ability to absorb nutrients from the plant by up to 87%. Sprouts are also a great source of anti-oxidants and other beneficial plant compounds. Studies show that food made from sprouted beans may be more nutritious. For example, tofu and soy milk made from sprouted soybeans contain 7-13% more protein, 12-24% less fat and 56-81% less anti nutrients compared to milk made from unsprouted ones.
