Hi there all, I bought some corn to sprout, was curious about those… It stated on the package that the sprouts are very sweet and that the kernels will be very chewy and are not recommended to eat because of that. Ok, said and done. There were actually two little tails appearing, the juice and very sweet indeed sprout, and a little stringy tail I discarded with the kernels. By the way, pretty tiresome to break those sprouts all off…
Now what to do with those juicy little guys? I’ve had a good handful and put them in my blender together with fresh blueberries, one banana, maca, mesquite, and carob powder, bee pollen, agave juice, half an avocado, and almond milk! Yeah, I went wild, thought we need something filling before heading out to the field.
Well, I just about finished my glass. Shortly after that, like 10 minutes or so I felt horrible… yucky in my stomach and got bloated… had everything of those listed ingredients before except for those sprouts, so I guess thats what it triggered… Any idea?? I thought maybe because corn has a lot of starches naturally and the sprouts were so sweet… that might have caused it?
Has had anyone experience with corn sprouts? It really were not many… but I can still feel the awful feeling in my stomach, yikes… Thanks for any input :)
