Mung bean sprouts have been grown and eaten by the Chinese for over 3000 years. These sprouts are high in protein, iron, magnesium, many vitamins, and are a good source of dietary fiber. They are an essential ingredient in eggrolls and many Asian stir-fry dishes, but can also be enjoyed in a number of ways, raw in salads, or on sandwiches — the culinary possibilities are limited only by your imagination!
Sprouting is as easy as 1—2—3! Simply soak your seeds in water overnight (about 8 to 12 hours), place them in your sprouting container, then rinse at least twice daily until sprouts have reached the length you desire. See inside of packet for more information about growing sprouts.
Sprouts can be grown in a variety of containers. The easiest method is to use the Botanical Interests Seed Sprouter™. It provides optimal air circulation and drainage, and has removable tray dividers that allow you to grow up to four different batches of sprouts at once.
Sprout Seed Safety: To ensure you are purchasing the safest possible sprouting seeds, a sample from each lot we receive is sent to an independent laboratory where it must test negative for foodborne pathogens including Escherichia coli (E. coli), Salmonella, Listeria, and Staphococcus aureus (Staph). For maximum safety it is recommended that you disinfect the outside of your seeds and your sprouting container prior to sprouting.
