Vegetable sprouts are young, recently germinated small plants. Due to the fact that they are harvested at an early stage, they contain a high concentration of vitamins, minerals, enzymes and proteins. Particularly if you compare them with the fully-grown vegetable.
The substances are more easily assimilable if the seeds have sprouted; this is because of the thin cell wall of the vegetable sprouts. The best-known sprouts at the moment are Alfalfa and Soy bean sprouts, but there are many others too.
