This is a great book about the nutritional benefits of different sprouts you can grow. I also learned that any organic seed for an edible is okay to sprout. There are a few sprouts that shouldn't be eaten raw, but most can. Some, like those in the cruciferous family (broccoli, cauliflower, kale, brussel sprouts) have highly potent anti-cancer properties. This book should warn that home-grown mung bean sprouts aren't as long as the supermarket ones unless you use weights. I was surprised about the high rates of enzymes in young sprouts as well as high protein contents, in addition to having mineral and vitamin attributes. From alfalfa to quinoa to wheat, this book covers most types of sprouting. I have the snakpik sprouter shown in the book (circular stackable) and I find small seeds do clog the drainage chutes.
