Peter asked the Naked Scientists:

When you take a lentil and keep it damp for a week, it sprouts and you get a crunchy bite to eat.  

My question is what's the nutritional difference between a cooked lentil and a fresh lentil shoot?


What do you think?

cooked lentil (if we do not consider the fact of cooking) is the bean - dormant seeds, which have same elemental, but different molecular composition, than fresh lentil shoot. Particularly, there are vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, a lot of vitamins C and E, in fresh lentil shoot. Also many others healthy nutrients, BTW which may not be stable to the higher (cooking) temperature.
