For those who want to get the most nutritious food for every dollar you spend at the grocery store now it’s easier than ever to get all that information. The grocery stores are now making it quite easy to see those info at the front of every item instead of the back where you have to strain your eyes to read the labels.

Look at the label

The new nutrition key information is now displayed where you will be able to spot information facts about the product in a clear and simple format that you can understand. You will easily recognize the calories per servings, saturated fat, sodium, and sugar. Other information will be available as well if the item contains 10% of daily value for a nutrient such as vitamin C, potassium, or calcium in it.

Sprouts

This has become a popular, low calorie sprout that is now available in a variety of tastes and textures, ready to add a crunchy bite to sandwiches and a burst of color to soups, stews, stir-fries, and also salads. You can find it in the produce section in the grocery stores.

Alfalfa

A very good source of fiber and calcium, alfalfa sprouts are the most familiar variety in stores now.

Mung

Well this product has become quite popular too, it is popular in stir-fries and other Asian dishes, mung bean sprouts are crunchy in texture and milky white in color and it’s very tasty I might add.

Broccoli

As for broccoli sprouts resemble alfalfa sprouts but have a very slight peppery taste but it’s nice with rice and pasta.

Here are some interested sprout safety tips.

Choose crisp, light-colored sprouts that have a fresh smell. Keep all raw food refrigerated especially sprouts at 40oF or even colder if possible. You must always rinse properly before using. Pregnant woman, young children and older adults or anybody who have a weak immune system should avoid uncooked sprouts at all cost.
