Growing your own food is a challenge. We want to make it as easy, quick, and healthy as possible. For first-time gardeners it is important to take baby steps.

Are you unsure where to begin?

You can start by growing sprouts.


The best part?

They are easy to grow and require very little time.


What are sprouts?

The journey of every plant involves a crucial phase called sprouting or germination, where the seeds break their hard shell, which is its natural defence coating & begin to grow the primary roots called sprouts.

The seed's outer protective layer contains complex compounds, including enzyme inhibitors and antinutrients. These complex compounds slow down the body's absorption of essential minerals and can cause digestive problems. The outer layer of the seed breaks down once it sprouts and transforms complex compounds into simpler forms.

When a seed is fully grown, its nutrient content increases by nearly 30 times. Therefore, the sprouted stage of a plant's life cycle is the most nutritious.

Basically, sprouts are germinated seeds that have been grown without soil. They measure a few inches in length and just begun to form stems and leaves. Every seed has all the nutrients it needs to germinate and grow. This means that if you eat a sprout, you will be eating every part of a plant, roots to leaves.


Different types of sprouts

Many varieties of seeds can be used to grow sprouts, including

  • Bean sprouts
  • Lentil sprouts
  • Grass sprouts
  • Vegetable sprouts

The most nutritious sprouts, out of all the varieties, are those made from vegetable seeds such as clover, turnip and radish. They are much more nutritious than sprouts of legumes or lentils. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, protein, and antioxidants, which can boost your immune system.


How to use sprouts

 Sprouts can be used in many different ways. Once they're cooked, you can use them.

  • For extra flavour and crunch, add to salads, dips or lettuce wraps
  • In juices and smoothies
  • Enjoy it as it is, for a tasty snack
  • Use in soups and stews



Do you have a good grasp of the world of sprouting?

You should order high-quality organic seeds and get started if you answered yes.

These tiny, sprouted seeds are a great source of nutrition and have many health benefits that will convince you to include them in your daily diet. Among their many health benefits is that they:

  • Antioxidants are a great way to fight illness
