I’d like to know the proper time to sprout buckwheat (post soaking and rinsing) to achieve the peak nutrient profile and minimize toxicity. In the past I have sprouted buckwheat groats until they have a “tail” of about 3/8” or 1/4” in length (takes about 1.5 – 2 days). They taste fine in granola once I dehydrate them. However, I have heard of the toxicity related to buckwheat greens and possibly buckwheat sprouts, so I am wondering if sprouting too long will lead to more toxicity in the sprouts.
I know lots of you use buckwheat sprouts, so I’d really appreciate any feedback you have! Thanks!
