Have you noticed how popular microgreens and sprouts are these days, utilized as a health food? Well, there is a good reason for it! Sprouting barley, peas, beans, alfalfa, sunflowers, and other seeds vastly increases their nutrient density. During the sprouting process, enzymes within the seeds are activated and enhanced far beyond what you find in the raw seed, or even what would be in the future mature vegetable or plant for that matter.
Studies show that a germinated seed (sprout) can have up to 4,000 times the concentration of enzymes and antioxidants than the un-sprouted seed! Similarly, the sprouts of grains, legumes, nuts, beans, and seeds also contain far more protein, vitamins, minerals, and available fiber than their seed form. Furthermore, the proteins in sprouts may also be easier to digest. This is because the sprouting process appears to reduce the amount of anti-nutrients — compounds that decrease your body’s ability to absorb nutrients from the plant — by up to 87%!

Instructions for Use
Basic Guide to Sprouting Seeds:
1. Rinse seed with water.
2. Soak seed in a jar or a bucket for 24 hours in twice the amount of water as you have seed. All seed must be submerged for this period.
3. Drain the water and rinse seed.
4. Put the seed in trays or buckets lined with paper towels. Be sure seed is spread well so that no seed is stacked on top of the other.
5. Pat dry the seed.
6. Keep seed in a cool place which is out of the sun.
7. Seed will likely sprout in 12 to 24 hours.
