See for yourself what sprouting does for you!

Reputed to be a highly nutritional practice, sprouting is an affordable way to grow your own nutrient packed food in a matter of days. Sprouting involves soaking, draining, and rinsing food grade seeds until they begin to germinate. Sprouts are rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, amino acids, beneficial enzymes and more. They have been called the "most enzyme rich food on the planet".

Planting & Care

Days to Sprout: short sprouts 2 days, Chinese bean sprouts 5-6 days

Best Sprouting Methods: Jar or Sprouting Tray (such as the Sproutmaster Trays )

Optimal Soak Time: 4-8 hours

Special sprouting directions (jar method):

SOAK- Put 3-5 Tbsp. seed in a wide mouth jar. Cover with mesh and secure with rubber band. Add water, swirl, and drain. Add 1 cup cool water and soak for 4 to 8 hours. Drain well.

RINSE - 2-4 times a day, refill jar with cool water, swirl, and drain. Invert jar and prop at an angle in a sink or bowl. Mung bean sprouts do best with lots of rinsing - 3 to 4 times a day if possible.

ENJOY - Ready to eat in 2 to 5 days. Refrigerate to store. Sprouts can be refrigerated for up to two weeks in a sealed container. (Sprouts store best when they are fairly dry- do not store immediately after rinsing.)

Special sprouting directions (tray method):

Use the tray method to grow tall straight Chinese bean sprouts. Grow mung bean sprouts in the dark - light causes bitterness.

SOAK- Cover the bottom of the sprouting tray with one single layer of seed. Place the tray and seeds in a dish of water and soak for 4 to 8 hours. (Alternatively, once you've measured your seeds in the tray, you can put the seeds in a bowl, fill the bowl with water, and soak for 4 to 8 hours.) Drain well.

RINSE - 2-4 times a day, rinse the seeds. Either rinse under a tap of running water, or use a spray bottle to mist well. Tip the tray to the side to drain well. Mung bean sprouts do best with lots of rinsing - 3 to 4 times a day if possible.

ENJOY - Ready to eat in 4 to 6 days. Refrigerate to store. Sprouts can be refrigerated for up to two weeks in a sealed container. (Sprouts store best when they are fairly dry- do not store immediately after rinsing.)

Nutrition Great source of protein and very good source of vitamins B6 & C, calcium, iron, magensium, potassium, and amino acids.

Yield 1/2 cup of dry seed yeilds 2.5 cups of sprouts.

Storage & Shelf Life Our seeds should sprout well for a year after you purchase them, if stored in a cool dry place. If you’d like to extend the germination life of your seeds, store them in the fridge. If you store your seeds in the freezer, they’ll last almost indefinitely.
