Sprouting is the natural process by which seeds or spores germinate and put out shoots, and already established plants produce new leaves or buds or other newly developing parts experience further growth.

In the field of nutrition, the term signifies the practice of germinating seeds (e.g., mung beans, sunflower seeds, etc.) to be eaten raw or cooked, which is considered highly nutritious.
