chikpeas have turned gray

hello everyone,

I have soaked chickpeas in water for a bout a day and a half, thus sprouting them, then i dried them a bit and put them in the fridge. some of them turned gray, though thier texture and taste were usual. Any ideas to why that might have happend and if it is still o.k to eat them?

Thanks ahead,

Eric

A day and a half immersion in water sounds a bit long to me. The seeds need to breath at some point. I'm just not sure what the maximum soaking times are. I soak lentils for about 8 hours then might rinse them after about 24 hours if they need another drink. Chick peas are bigger seeds though...

Hi,

My mung bean sprouts did the same thing because I was using a clear see-through sprouter. After that I started covering the sprouter with a towel to block the light and never had them turn gray again. Not sure if this applies to chick pea sprouts though.
