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".

    Easy sprouting directions (tray method):

    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 6 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 6 hours.) Drain well.

    RINSE - Twice 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.

    ENJOY - Ready to eat in 5 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.)
