2 – 12 hours
The amount of time your seeds should soak in cool water. Soaking is how we begin the sprouting process in most cases.
RINSE / DRAIN
2 – 3 times per day
How often your seeds should be watered. Rinsing thoroughly and then draining as much water as possible are key components to growing great sprouts.
2 – 6 days
The time it takes to grow a finished Sprout, or other crop (Micro-Greens, Grass, Greens) from a dry Seed. Note: This “finished” Sprout is our preference. you may grow them for as long as you want! In fact, we suggest that you taste them at every rinse to discover when you like them best. As always, we suggest that you taste your crop at EVERY RINSE – including the very first – just after the Soak period. The soaked seeds are already alive and super nutritious – and – they are now without enzyme inhibitors (a very good thing indeed!) so they’ll digest themselves and nourish you. But, as we say elsewhere on this page, we Sproutpeople do Not eat Soy Bean Sprouts raw because we find them difficult to digest. Everyone is unique of course, so you’ll need to decide for yourself if you want to eat them raw or not. You can steam a few of them lightly to try them if you decide raw doesn’t work for you.
