All about Bean Sprouts
Bean sprouting refers to the process of soaking beans in water, allowing them to set at room temperature and rinsing them once or twice a day until sprouts form. The number of days required before the sprouts can be eaten depends on type of bean, temperature and humidity, although most beans sprout in two or three days. Advocates of sprouting claim that bean sprouts contain higher concentrations of vitamins and minerals than the beans they come from. Eating some raw bean sprouts may pose health risks, but most can be eaten without worry.
Children, the elderly and people with impaired immune system function are at the greatest risk of infection from consuming raw bean sprouts. If you choose to consume raw sprouts, consume quickly or refrigerate them at a temperature below 40 degrees Fahrenheit and discard them as soon as they lose their crispness, after about two or three days, to minimize the risk of bacterial infection.
