The effect of sprouting on the folate concentration of legumes is incredible. It peaks on the fourth day of sprouting, though, according to a recent study. But is it always the fourth day in every legume under any condition sprouted in a home kitchen? Are the sprouted legumes on the store shelf four-day sprouts? Right now there are more questions than answers, but I believe that opting for sprouted legumes is a good way to supercharge your folate status as long as you still make an effort to get 2-3 servings of folate-rich foods per day.
I cover this and another way to supercharge your folate status — eating egg yolks from pasture-raised chickens — in today’s Chris Masterjohn Lite video.
