Broccoli sprouting test July 2021, the picture in the top left shows the sprouts before they are soaked and rinsed in the morning, some people think that those fluffy white areas are mould, if you look closely you will find they are the fine lateral root hairs and after you've soaked and rinsed you won't notice them because they will be wet and clinging to the taproot. The picture at the bottom right shows the finished ready to eat or store, Broccoli sprouts with most of husk removed. Click to hide..

The secret to growing SUPER Charged Broccoli sprouts is to soak in bio-activated organic nutrients, initially overnight e.g. for 8 hours and then each day for 10-30mins, then rinse/drain for another three or four days, and in the last few days remove any husk or un-sprouted material, then secure the cover and place in the fridge where it will continue to grow for at least a week.

Also to note the Alfalfa & Broccoli that we sell is tested for the presence of pathogens such as Salmonella, E. coli etc.

NB- small sprouts such as Alfalfa or Broccoli can form a tight mesh, which can lead to overheating and also makes it harder to get rid of un-sprouted material such as husk (the outer covering of the seed which is shed when the seed sprouts), so we suggest you mix these with a larger sprout, the best one we have found for this is red arrow Radish, this creates more air and space between the sprouts diminishing the chances of these problems occurring.

The advantages of our sprouting colanders:

1- The colanders come with their own drip bowl.

2- They have different drainage settings i.e. they can be set flat e.g. use for the 1st few days and then at an angle for even better drainage and aeration as the sprout mass becomes larger.

3- They also come with a flat perforated optional lid/cover

– ensures they do not dry out but still allowing good aeration

– allows for excellent storage conditions in your fridge, you can even stack several on top of each other. I use them with the lid on flat in a cool dark place for the 1st few days, I then place them in the light, again with the lid on but at an angle, ie as the sprouts become denser they need more air. For the last few days I either divide them into 2 separate colanders, there is a version available with large slots in the base that can be used at this stage to aid in husk removal, personally I combine several small colanders into one large colander for the final greening and de-husking process and then store the large colander in the fridge with the cover in place. This gives you an excellent cycling system whereby you immediately restart one of the smaller colanders.

4- Another difference with our sprouting technique is that we supply bio-activated organic nutrients which you soak the seeds and sprouts in once a day, what this means is that the nutritional content is many times greater than if you just rinse them each day in water, basically what is happening here is that the organic nutrients contain 99% of the major and micro trace elements (Azomite, Dolomite, Kelp, Humate-decomposed prehistoric plants etc), these are then fermented to make them more easily absorbed by the sprouts, which then present these minerals and trace elements in a bio-available form to you, truly giving you a super food. This also means that they will last longer in the fridge not to mention they taste better.

My favourite combinations are

– Broccoli, Radish (Red Arrow), Alfalfa, the other mix that I do is Fenugreek and Radish (Red Arrow), e.g. preferred mix is 30ml Broccoli, 30ml Alfalfa, 30ml Red Arrow Radish. This gives you 1 full 4ltr colander of yummy tangy sprouts.

– Fenugreek and Radish (Red Arrow + Daikon) – 4ltr colander.

– And 1.5L colander of red Lentils sprouts.

If you’re buying Broccoli for its anti-cancer properties then I would like to suggest that you have a close look at the radish sprouts, see extract below, apart from the of possible higher health benefits they are cheaper, quicker to germinate and have a slightly higher germination rate than the broccoli, they also produce a lot more green and bigger sprouts, they can also be sprouted equally well both as a vertical sprout or as a loose sprout, if mixing them with broccoli, give the broccoli 2 day start as the radish is very fast.

Broccoli vs Radish anti-cancer properties: – “When sprouts are consumed fresh (uncooked), however, the principal degradation product of broccoli is not the isothiocyanate sulforaphane, but a nitrile, a compound with little anti-cancer potential. By contrast, radish sprouts produce largely the anti-cancer isothiocyanate, sulforaphene. The reason for this difference is likely to be due to the presence in broccoli (and absence in radish) of the enzyme cofactor, epithiospecifier protein (ESP). In vitro induction of the phase 2 enzyme, quinone reductase (QR), was significantly greater for radish sprouts than broccoli sprouts when extracts were self-hydrolysed. By contrast, boiled radish sprout extracts (deactivating ESP) to which myrosinase was subsequently added, induced similar QR activity to broccoli sprouts.”

“The implication is that radish sprouts have potentially greater chemoprotective action against carcinogens than broccoli sprouts when hydrolysed under conditions similar to that during human consumption.

Sprout Kits

Sprout Kit Sm. x 1

Basic sprouting kit consisting of 1 sprouting colanders with covers along with 250 mls of bio activated organic nutrients + Storage options(2 X cotton bags, mesh bag, plastic bag clip). Ideal for the beginner who does not do huge quantities e.g. if you just want to do Broccoli, when the colanders is almost full you can start eating and or store in the fridge using the storage options(2 X cotton bags, mesh bag, plastic bag clip) then restart your next batch. Click to hide.

Sprout Kit Sm. x 1
Sprout Kit Sm. x 2

Ideal for the beginner who does not do huge quantities e.g. if you just want to do Broccoli, when 1 of the colanders is almost full you can start eating and or store in the fridge and then start the other one so you have a consistent supply.

Sprout Kit Sm. x 2
Sprout Kit Lg. x 1 + Sm. x 2

Sprouting kit 2 small sprouting colanders with covers plus one large 4L colander with cover along with 250ml of bio activated organic nutrients + Storage options(2 X cotton bags, mesh bag, plastic bag clip). Ideal for those people that eat a lot of sprouts as you can wait until the 2 small ones are full or three quarters full and then add them to the large one which you store in the fridge, after a few more days of cleaning and rinsing, and then start the process again in the small ones while eating from the large one, again so you have a constant supply.

Sprout Kit Lg. x 1 + Sm. x 2
Sprout Kit Lg. x 1 + Sprout Bag

Sprouting kit 1 large colander with cover + Storage options(2 x cotton bags, 2 x mesh bags, plastic bag clip ) for the early stage of sprouting (instead of the small colanders) +250 ml of bio-activated nutrients for sprouting with seed selection. So the idea with this kit is you use 1 of the mesh bags to grow your sprouts for the 1st say 4 days, you then empty them into the large colander for the final stages of cleaning (removal of husk) and greening. When the sprouts are ready you stop soaking and draining them and leave them to dry for a couple of days and then store them in the other mesh bag inside the cotton bag inside a plastic bag. You can then start sprouting again in your other mesh bag or if you have another spare colander you can begin this process earlier. This saves you the cost of extra small colanders with covers but not quite as convenient in my opinion. Select the Product Name button to go to that Product Or Click to hide.

Sprout Kit Lg. x 1 + Sprout Bag
Sprout Kit Lg. Mung

Growing Super Mung bean Sprouts using 1 large 4 L colander +2 KG of pebbles to weigh the sprouts +1 KG of Mung bean and bio-activated super organic nutrients.
Growing the mung bean in the long white format. This can be done by putting it in a space that restricts its growth or similarly, as we have done here, placing a weight on top of the sprouts, along with the tea towel this serves the purpose of also keeping the light out i.e. so the leaf development is restricted.
We give you the option of purchasing this kit with or without the cover, if you are just doing mung beans then you do not need the cover, however if you want to use it to do normal sprouts then you can sprout the seeds in the mesh bag for say 3 – 4 days, and then empty them into the large colander and proceed with the sprouting process from there, in this case you will need the cover.
We also supply you with our sprouts/vegetable storage system this allows you to store your sprouts in the fridge for well over a week. Select the Product Name button to go to that Product Or Click to hide.

Vegetable storage kit

The kit consists of 2 cotton bags, one mesh bag, and a clip to seal plastic bags. Can be used to store leafy greens, sprouts, vegetables in general and can also be used as a shopping/carry bag also designed to fold into a small package.
This is the method I now use to store my sprouts and salad greens also other vegetables. Leafy greens & sprouts, it's best to store them 1st in a mesh bag, any damp material will not stick to the cotton bag (meaning you do not have to wash the cotton bag every time you change it). So the simple procedure is put the leafy greens inside the mesh bag, zip it up, place inside the cotton bag, then place inside a plastic bag that doesn't have any holes in it, gently squeeze the air out and secure with the clip.

The kit also comes with a small cover which makes it easier to add the growing medium i.e. stops it falling down through the watering hole, there are also 2 supports that sit underneath the grill to ensure the optimum height of the grill in the tray.
Can be used to grow arrange of microgreens, personally I use a paper towel to cover the grill and then use vermiculite as the growing medium. It can also be used to grow small potted herbs, in this configuration you just add the herb to the grill, flood the grill until the roots penetrate into the reservoir below, at this stage you may need to add some of the nutrient solution to the water in the reservoir. Here seen grown in 1 of our light stands which is specifically designed for narrow spaces such as a cupboard or a kitchen bench.
