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".
