Recently our intern, Sean, spent 3 days doing a small sprouting experiment for us. He sprouted some of our seeds in glass mason jars, and these are what the sprouted seeds looked like at the end of the experiment:
From left to right: sprouted teff, sprouted quinoa, and sprouted millet

Thanks to Ray, our new sales manager in the Midwest, Texas, and Arizona, for his research on sprouted grains, nuts, and seeds.
“The process of germination not only produces vitamin C but also changes the composition of grain and seeds in numerous beneficial ways. Sprouting increases vitamin B content… Carotene increases dramatically…Sprouting neutralizes phytic acid, a substance…that inhibits absorption of calcium.”
“Almost any grain or seed can be sprouted”, including chia seeds and quinoa. What is so remarkable “is the ability of this sprout to produce a whole range of substances – principally vitamins and enzymes – that are completely absent, or present only in extremely small amounts, in the unsprouted seed”.
