Sunflower sprouts - strange color?

DenisDenis Raw Newbie

I've tried sprouting sunflower seeds for the second time (first time they smelled really bad) and I am not sure if they are supposed to look like this. They smell neutral and taste nice, but are yellowish/brownish with some black spots. Is this ok, or should I keep it safe and throw them out?

Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure about the brown and black. Were you brave enough to try them?

    I noticed mold on some of them as well, so I threw them out. It surprised me a bit as I was letting them drain for 2 days and they had good air circulation, hopefully it will work out better next time, as the good ones were quite tasty smile
