Description

Certified Organic. Delicious nutty sunflower taste in a big crunchy sprout! 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". Safety Sprouts, like any fresh live food, could carry harmful bacteria; nothing grown in nature is sterile. Although Mumm's feels the risk of organic seed being contaminated with salmonella or e-coli is very small, they do take it very seriously. Mumm's samples each lot (probes every bag) of seeds as it arrives in their warehouse. Samples go to an independent lab for sprouting, followed by salmonella and ecoli O157 tests. Mumm's keeps seeds quarantined until negative test results are returned. Mumm's uses a system of GMP's (good manufacturing practices) to insure the seed stays clean until it reaches the customer. Days to Sprout: 8-10 Best Sprouting Methods: Sprouting Tray (such as the Sproutmaster Trays ) Optimal Soak Time: 4-8 hours Easy sprouting directions (tray method): SOAK- Soak seed in water for 4 - 8 hrs. Drain. Spread two layer deep in the bottom of a sprouting tray with drainage holes. RINSE - Rinse or mist twice a day, carefully at first so you don’t disturb the seed until the roots catch onto the tray. Cover between rinses. For darker green leaves cover with clear plastic. ENJOY -Ready to harvest in 8-10 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 an excellent source of vitamins B6, and E, calcium, iron, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, and dietary fiber. Yield 1/4 cup seed yields approx 3 cups of sunflower shoots 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. Check out our Sproutmaster Trays - they make sprouting even easier!
