Ingredients for vegan vets supersprouts recipe made of sprouted lentils and alfalfa sprouts

 

Why Sprouts?

Most legumes that are used as a protein source in plant-based diets such as chickpeas and lentils contain a high amount of phytic acid that inhibits the absorption of valuable vitamins, iron and calcium from the intestine. To reduce the levels of phytic acid when lentils are eaten, it is very important to soak them; eat fermented legumes such a tofu which is fermented soya; or ideally sprout the lentils easily on your window sill.

All of these methods aim for an environment to allow the maximum absorption of these important nutrients from your dog’s large intestine.
