What are sprouts and what are shoots?
Sprouts are seeds whose seedlings have just appeared in their first
stage of germination. They are the cleanest and easy to digest raw food;
a cocktail of vitamins, minerals and digestive enzymes.
What are the benefits?
Sprouts have always been a popular nutritional food for many diet
conscious people around the globe. They contain fewer calories compared
to other snacks and are excellent sources of vitamin K, C, fiber,
digestive enzymes and other essential minerals. Most of us are always
skeptical about sprouts, as we still have no exact idea about the good
and bad effects of sprouts. Recent surveys say that Sprouts have
essential therapeutic benefits and have the ability to protect us from
- Normalize metabolism
- Stabilize all body systems: nervous, lymphatic,
cardiovascular, digestive and etc.
- Increase the oxygen levels in blood
- Help the body eliminate excessive cholesterol, dead cells

They can be found in any large supermarket today. However,
commercially grown sprouts never see the sunlight - they grow
under artificial lights and conditions. They might look good,

Best way is to grow them at home.
Sprouts require attention. They like little moisture and much air. As
they grow, they give release wastes and heat, so cleaning and
ventilation is needed. Many people grow them in jars or boxes, but it
creates the opposite environment - too much humidity and very little
air. In this environment invisible but highly toxic microbes and mould
However, we want something healthy, right?
The idea to make healthy and cheap food available
for all people (not just the rich and celebrities) made me look for a
cheap and universal way to do it. After many trials and errors, I
came out with a sprouter which automatically airs, wents, heats and rinses
the seeds and removes the dirty water. Today, my automatic sprouter
is a reality and I have assembled and sold over 2000 pieces with
excellent feedback from customers.
Any type of seeds - sunflower seeds, peas, soya beans, alfalfa, lentils,
wheat, rye, chickpeas, buckwheats, etc. Then you can add them to your salad,
