Pea sprouts contain almost twice the amount of folate (B9) as raw peas. Deficiencies in this vitamin may result in birth abnormalities, such as heart and neural tube defects.
Neural tube defects occur when the bones surrounding your child’s spine or skull don’t develop properly, which may lead to the brain or spinal cord being exposed at birth.
Studies show that folic acid supplements reduce the incidence of neural tube defects among women of reproductive age.
Health professionals also suggest consuming folate-rich foods, such as sprouted peas.
Pea sprouts are more tender than most sprouts. They pair well with leafy greens in salads but can also be stir-fried.
