Some vegetables are better eaten raw, as they provide more nutrients if they are not cooked, but not this one.
Vegetables are the best, they are versatile, nutritious, and tasty. I love raw veggies, but I like them steamed, sautéed, and grilled as well.
There are many vegetables that retain nutrients that could be lost if you cooked them. But there is one vegetable that is not beneficial if it is eaten raw.
You should never eat raw sprouts because they could harbor dangerous bacteria.
Sprouts are grown from seed and beans in warm and humid conditions, these are perfect conditions for dangerous bacteria such as Salmonella, Listeria and E. coli. to breed.
To process sprouts, it's better to wash sprouts under running water to reduce bacteria and cook them thoroughly to avoid food poisoning.
If you notice any signs of severe food poisoning, you must consult a doctor, as you could dehydrate and this may lead to more serious consequences.
