Description

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: 4-5 Microgreens- 8-12 days Best Sprouting Methods: Baby Blanket unbleached heavy paper towel unbleached coffee filter unglazed clay surface Optimal Soak Time: Do not soak Special Sprouting Directions Use unglazed clay surface (pot bottom), unbleached heavy paper towel, Baby Blanket, or unbleached coffee filter. Do not soak. Spread evenly and lightly on the moistened surface and mist lightly at least twice a day. In between misting, loosely cover in clear plastic. Harvest when reaches desired height. Cress can be added in small amounts to regular sprouting seeds (alfalfa, lentils, etc) in a jar or sprouter. Mix the cress in after soaking the other seed. Do not soak the cress. Do not add too much, as cress tends to be mucilaginous. Nutrition Curly cress is an important source of iron, folic acid, calcium, vitamins C, E and A. The seed contains arachidic and linoleic fatty acids. Yield Sprouts 1 tbsp dry seed yields approx 2-3 cups sprouts. Microgreens- 1 tbsp dry seed yields approx 8-12 cups microgreens. 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!
