We can sprout about one hundred varieties of seeds and beans, the most common are alfaalf seeds, mung beans, lentls, onions, cress, wheat, chickpeas, soya beans, radish seeds, fenugreek seeds and mustard seeds. Sprouts are living food that can provide our body with a daily source of a wide variety of valuable vitamins, proteins, minerals, trace elements and enzymes. All in all a vital life-force.

They are also called as super-foods as all the enzymes, vitamins and proteins and minerals are activated during germination. Sprouts have much more nutritional value than the seeds themselves.
