Why Sprout Powders?

Sprouted grains, legumes, and seeds are some of the most vitamin and mineral-dense foods on the planet. When the seeds are germinated, through their initial contact with water in the sprouting process, their nutritional content changes dramatically. They become higher in protein, lower in carbohydrates, and develop a host of vital live enzymes.

During the first few days of sprouting, a newly developing sprout is loaded with potential energy -- the life source necessary for the seed to grow. As the sprout grows and matures into a plant, this concentrated energy is diluted. The sprouts used for these sprout powders are sprouted only for a short period of time, and are harvested before they change from a sprouted seed to a young plant, at the exact time when they are at their maximum level of nutritional and enzymatic value.

At this point in the sprout's development, the Vitamins, minerals, and important phytochemicals are in their most potent form, and are in their most readily bioavailable state. Additionally, research has shown that for those grains containing gluten, at this stage the gluten content is reduced and is in a more easily digestible form.

After the young sprouts have reached this optimum level of development, they are harvested and slow-dried at low temperatures. Drying at low temperatures is extremely important so that the live enzymes in the sprouts remain alive. After the drying process, the sprouts are then gently ground into a fine powder.

More About Fenugreek Sprouts…

Fenugreek is an abundant source of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. It contains a complete amino acid profile, including compounds like Tryptophan, Arginine, Lysine, Leucine, Phenylalanine, and Glutamic Acid. Fenugreek is rich in calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, copper, and selenium. It contains critical vitamins, like Vitamin A, B6 and 12, C, Thiamine, Riboflavin, and Folate.

One of the more unique healing properties of fenugreek is its ability to act as a diaphoretic, bringing on sweating and helping to detox the body. Fenugreek is a lymphatic cleansing herb. It irrigates cells with nutrients, removing toxins and waste. A blocked lymphatic system leads to poor circulation, loss of energy, and disease. Fenugreek helps to clear congestion in the lungs.

Hydroponically Grown and Responsibly Harvested

Our Raw Organic Fenugreek Sprout Powder begins its journey from certified organic seeds that are carefully selected and guaranteed to be of the best quality in the industry. The sprouts are grown in a precision-controlled environment, high in the Rocky Mountains, where each small batch is micro-biologically tested and allowed to thrive in an oxygen-rich atmosphere.

Everything about the growing process is meticulously watched, from the temperature and moisture surrounding the plants to the lighting and air-quality. The sprouts are grown hydroponically by placing the delicate roots in a liquid nutrient solution, rather than in soil. This creates a smaller root for each plant, which means we can grow more sprouts in a smaller facility. Energy and overhead remain low, and we pass the savings on to you in the form of lower prices.

The sprouts are harvested at their highest nutrient density, and processed at low temperatures to preserve fragile enzymes and amino acids. We gently crush our air-dried sprouts into a powder, which tastes wonderful sprinkled onto salads and vegetables or mixed into beverages.

Storage Instructions

If cared for properly, the Organic Fenugreek Sprout Powder has a shelf life of up to two years. To preserve the freshness of this product:

  • Avoid exposure to heat. The powder will remain fresh if stored at room temperature or below.
  • Avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
  • Squeeze all of the air out of the bag before sealing.
  • Seal the bag tightly after each use.
  • Store the powder in a dry place, and avoid all contact with moisture.

Packaging

We package all of our superfood powders in all-natural brown kraft bags, each with a resealable zipper across the top. Each bag has a thin metal lining, which serves as a very effective barrier to light, oxygen, odors, flavors, moisture, and bacteria.

While printed plastic bags with clear windows may look beautiful, studies have shown that the toxins contained in the plastic are absorbed by food that is in direct contact with the plastic. Foods that are raw and all-natural, like superfood powders, are even more susceptible to this type of contamination than processed foods.
