Which germicidal foods are edible, which are highly toxic?

Cập nhật: 17 thg 6, 2019 lúc tháng 6 17, 2019

In winter, many people buy food for storage, but they are easy to germinate. Most people know that inadvertent sprouting potatoes contain toxins, but can other foods such as ginger, garlic, sweet potatoes, ... grow sprouts be eaten?
Food is not edible
When it comes to "toxic germination food", potatoes are definitely on this list. To combat the penetration of pests, potatoes can produce some toxins to protect themselves, including solanine. Solanine is found mainly in stems, leaves and parts we often eat.

In fact, fresh potatoes also contain solanine, but in very small quantities, even if you eat it every day. But when sprouting and potatoes turn green, solanine will be produced in large quantities, exceeding safe consumption, if ingested will cause nausea, abdominal pain, diarrhea, even difficulty breathing, kissing So, if your potato has sprouted, it should be removed.

When peanuts germinate, the crust is destroyed, in proper humidity and temperature conditions, it easily becomes moldy and produces aflatoxin - a substance that can cause cancer.

Food can be eaten
    Onions, garlic, ginger
Ginger, garlic and onions are common spices in life. Families often store them in the home for gradual use. Just need the right heat, they are easy to germinate.

From a nutritional perspective, when germinated vegetables, nutrients will be used to provide for the development of young shoots, so the nutrient content and flavor of the food will reduced. Ginger, garlic and onions after germination can still be eaten, except when molded or bruised. Not only that, sprouting garlic also has higher antioxidant content than fresh garlic, has anti-aging effect, increases resistance.

Beans (pass)
When soybeans germinate, they break down substances that interfere with nutrient absorption, meaning that eating germinated soybeans can increase the body's ability to absorb nutrients.

Green bean sprouts are a familiar dish of many families. After pea germination, protein and vitamin A and C content increased.

Peas germinate to 2700 micrograms of carotene / 100 grams of beans, many times larger in other vegetables.

Sweet potato 
Although the same potatoes, sweet potatoes and potatoes are completely different types of plants. Potatoes belong to the Solanaceae family, sweet potatoes are Convolvulaceae, one is tuber and the other is root.

For sweet potatoes, the germ itself does not produce any toxic substances, but the nutritional value is not high because most of the water and its nutrients are used for germination. Besides, suitable environmental conditions for germination are also suitable for growing mold. They produce a number of toxins during growth and reproduction. In general, sweet potato sprouts often come with mold, so be sure to check carefully, when you feel abnormal, don't eat it anymore.

Sprouted brown rice
When brown rice germinates, a large number of enzyme sources are activated, while creating a variety of new hydrolytic enzymes, such as amylase, hemixenlulase, protease, oxidoreductase, thus the energy and other nutrients Brown rice will change significantly. Some macromolecules in rice become small molecules, and nutrients are easier to digest and absorb.

Some current studies have shown that germinated brown rice is rich in vitamin B, vitamin A, vitamin E, and niacin and pantothenic acid. Furthermore, calcium, magnesium and other minerals in brown rice are often combined with phytic acid, which is difficult to absorb when consumed. However, due to the activation of phytase during germination, phytic acid decomposes and mineral elements are released, thus easily digested and absorbed.

These foods often germinate in warm and humid environments. If you don't want them to germinate, don't store too much and store in cool and dry places!
