Sprouts provide your body with a daily source of vitamins as well as valuable proteins, minerals, trace elements and enzymes. During germination, there is a sharp increase in the vitamin content of sprouts; moreover, carbohydrates, fats and proteins are partially broken down, increasing their digestibility.

• Weight for weight, sprouted seeds contain more nutrients than any other natural food known to man - enough to rival even the best supplement pills available.
• Due to the fact that they are basically ‘baby plants', they contain high concentrations of valuable enzymes, proteins, mineral substances, trace elements and natural vitamins.
• Sprouts also contain excellent fibre that is beneficial to the intestines and regulates the digestive process.
• Since they grow right up until the moment they're picked, practically no nutrients are lost.

What to look for and expect.

After a couple of days you will start to see little shoots forming: this is the start of germination. You may see little white fibres on the sprouts . This is perfectly normal but can often be mistaken for mould at a glance. Mould will have a musty smell and looks like grey fur!
