The other day I thought I’d be creative and use some sprouted black beans that I purchased at the store and convert a cooked black bean dip recipe with sprouted black beans to make a raw version. Well, I was pleasantly surprised with my creation at first. Even took pictures so others could marvel at my work :). But after about an hour I started to feel tired. Then an overwhelming feeling of nausea overcame me. After several hours I eventually threw up.
In the midst of feeling ill I began googling online about sprouted black beans. I found some stories about people who got sick from eating them as well.
Now I am wondering, was this just a fluke, or are sprouted black beans not supposed to be eaten raw? I read that sprouted Lima Beans should not be consumed (research indicated a resounding no) but has anyone else had experience with sprouted beans in general (positive or heinous) ?
