So why are sprouted beans good for you?

Sprouting seeds equals an increase in nutrients when compared to dried seeds.  The vitamins, minerals and protein increase substantially and the calories and carbohydrate contents decrease.  When it sprouts, a healthy seed activates many different metabolic systems.  It converts some of its sugar content into vitamin C, to act as an antioxidant in the new open air environment.  It also begins to synthesize a variety of new enzymes, many of them necessary to handle oxygen metabolism in the world above the soil.  On a gram for gram basis, sprouts are richer in vitamin C than the older, more mature plants they eventually become, because this moment in their lifecyle calls for a high level of vitality.  Basically sprouts contain all the nutrients found in the various fruits and vegetables, and you can get this nutrition without pesticides and insecticides.
