what sprouts (can/or should not) be eaten raw?
can larger beans not be digested raw?
but wait, I could sprout garbanzos/chick peas and eat them raw, right? :(

I sprout chick peas to make hummous and I have used them in crackers. I think that kidney beans should be avoided as thay can do you serious harm but I do now know of any others that you should avoid maybe someone else can add to the list

it's so funny that you mentioned that, well it's funny now it wasn't back then...
I really found out the hard way that kidney bean sprouts belong on the SHOULD NOT eat raw list.
I was just trying out sprouting for the first few times. The lentils were great... so I thought I try to sprout one of my favorite beans... HUGE mistake!!!
I must say I did not sprout anything again for a while~

Thanks for the heads-up about kidney beans, I wasn't aware that they are unsuitable for raw consumption, as sprouts.
