The consumption of sprouts, common in Asia, has been growing in western countries, once they are a natural healthy food and considered as a valuable dietary supplement. Comparing with their mature counterparts, sprouts are usually richer in health-promoting phytochemicals. So, the nutritional composition and the biological potential of widely consumed sprouts of three species – Glycine max (L.) Merr., Vigna radiata L. and Medicago sativa L. – were compared for the first time. Phenolic compounds and phytosterols were analyzed by HPLC–DAD and organic acids by HPLC–UV. The volatile profile was determined by HS-SPME/GC–IT/MS. Fourteen phenolic compounds (including four isoflavones), three sterols one triterpene, sixteen fatty acids, seven organic acids and thirty volatile compounds were determined. The antioxidant activity was assessed against DPPH•, superoxide and nitric oxide radicals. G. max sprouts were the most active against DPPH• (IC₅₀=1.337mg/mL), while those of M. sativa were the most effective against superoxide and nitric oxide radicals (IC₅₀=67μg/mL and IC₅₀=426μg/mL, respectively). Data provide evidence of great similarities between G. max and M. sativa sprouts, both being rich in phenolic compounds, fatty acids and volatiles, and exhibiting better antioxidant activity. On the other hand, V. radiata showed higher amounts of sterols, triterpenes and organic acids. In this study it was found that the sprouts are a good source of bioactive compounds
in our diet with health-promoting antioxidants.
