Pea is a leguminous high protein plant and widely used as a vegetable. In the present research, pea seeds were soaked in different forms of iodine – iodate (1000 mg I(V)/L) and iodide (1000 mg I–/L) to produce pea sprouts. Pea sprouts grown from the seeds soaked in iodide had the highest concentrations of chlorophyll a and carotenoids per dry mass. Respiratory potential, measured as ETS activity was significantly higher in pea sprouts treated with iodine compared to the control. Iodine concentrations were determined by ICP-MS after the microwave-assisted extraction in alkaline media (tetramethylammonium hydroxide). Results show that the form of iodine for plant treatment influenced iodine uptake. The highest amount of iodine was found in sprouts from iodide soaked seeds (210 μg/g DW), with no significant differences between sprouts from seeds which were soaked with iodate (188 μg/g).
