General Information

Sprouts are very young plants germinated from seeds or beans. Typically the seeds and beans are rinsed, soaked for several hours, drained and then left to grow, with periodic rinsing, for up to 7 days. Sprouts are generally 2 to 5 cm long when consumed. They are low in calories but rich in various beneficial plant compounds.

Sprouting improves amino acid and vitamin content, activates enzymes, reduces anti-nutrients that inhibit the absorption of nutrients and improves digestibility.

Our additive free NutraSprout powders are made only from organic sprouts that are sanitized, dried with heated air and then ground into powder.
