The history of sprouts:
Today, sprouts are very trendy, but they are nothing new!
Sprouts have already been mentioned in ancient Chinese texts dating back to the 3rd century AD.
It also was a Chinese physician who referred to sprouted seeds as "miracle packages" at the end of the 16th century. He postulated that sprouts have anti-inflammatory, anti-rheumatic, laxative and physically strenghtening effects. The trade with sprouts has been growing in China ever since the beginning of the 20th century.
In the 1970s, the "green movement" gave sprouts also a tremendous boost in Europe. Chefs started to use attractive-looking sprouts for the decoration of their meals. Today, growing your own sprouts has established itself as a health trend in the big cities . No matter how big or small the appartment, crunchy sprouts can always be grown on every windowsill.
