REASON TO GROW YOUR OWN SPROUTS:
Nutrition: Sprouts are baby vegetables in their prime. They contain nutrients including proteins, vitamins and minerals, and enzymes. Sunflower sprouts are a good source of protein and contain vitamins B6, and E, calcium, iron, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, and dietary fiber. Contains more protein than lettuce and spinach.
Freshness: Eaten when picked. No loss of nutrients sitting on the produce shelf. Great fresh, flavors!
Variety: You can grow more varieties of salad greens than are available in the supermarket. Your salads will come alive with flavor!
Digestibility: As baby plants, their delicate cell walls easily release elemental nutrients. Abundant enzymes make them easier to digest.
Space & Time: It’s Easy! Just add water! No soil. No bugs. No green thumb required. No special lights. One pound grows in only 9 inches of space.
Economics: Seeds can multiply many times their weight and you can save money by growing your own rather than buying the grown sprouts. Instead of 1 head of lettuce, you get 1,000's of micro-lettuce leaves. You can have a delicious 100% Organic Salad 52 weeks a year for only pennies per pound!
1/4 cup (approximately 1.01 oz) of dry seeds yields 3 cups of sprouts.
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 in a sealed freezer bag, they'll last even longer!
Soak 4 to 8 hours in water - Drain. Spread two layers deep in the bottom of a sprouting tray with drainage holes.
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 to 10 days - To keep fresh, refrigerate well drained sprouts. Sprouts store best when fairly dry- do not store immediately after rinsing.
