So what's the deal with raw grains and raw legumes

I was thinking of ordering a mixed bag of raw grains, adzuki beans, and some lentils for sprouting. However, I am finding conflicting info on the health of such foods. Are raw sprouted grains and legumes healthy or are they something to be avoided?

    Raw sprouted grains and legumes, should not be avoided. They are very healthy and have many nutrients, they are also a good source of a low fat protein:). I love to sprout, my favorite sprouts are, buckwheat, lentils mung beans and alfalfa sprouts!! Enjoy eating sprouts with anything. I make a raw lentil soup. Its amazing!!! Eat your sprouts!!!

    i get a lot of indigestion from raw grains and beans. mostly bloating and constipation. i basically feel like a rock is in my stomach.

    the pure raw-grain and beans are toxic, you have to cook, ferment them or of course sprout! crunchy 8).

    Oh yeah, definitely planning on sprouting them until they have cute little tails.

    I think if you have no problems with them, they can be a part of a healthy diet but are not necessary. They can be avoided w/o a problem.
