You can see the difference in our sprouts and it’s all about how we grow them! Wild About Sprouts® seeds are planted directly in 3-ounce retail packages, the sprouts remain alive and completely untouched until harvested by consumers in their homes. Wild About Sprouts® are also produced in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way, being herbicide- and pesticide-free, non-GMO and using only ¼ cup of water per package with no water waste. Wild About Sprouts® have a 21-day shelf life, remaining fresh long past other fresh produce items. In addition, each package and growing pad is recyclable.
But it’s much more than just growing sprouts in individual containers! Rä Foods LLC turned away from the old risky, traditional drum sprout growing methods and developed the new patented Cold Grown® process to grow sprouts in cold conditions that cause an actual pathogen die-off.
Since the ‘70s sprouts have been a popular addition to sandwiches, salads, and other dishes. But they are also a source of potent nutrition.
The process of sprouting seeds causes increased activity of hydrolytic enzymes, increased bioavailability of certain essential amino acids, B‐group vitamins, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and other important minerals by breaking down anti-nutritional inhibitors found in un-sprouted seeds and grains.
USDA scientists and others have tested commercially available varieties of tiny young plants like sprouts and found that on average they contained more than four times the vitamins and carotenoid antioxidants of their mature plant counterparts. Plus, sprouts add delicious flavor and crunch that enhances the sensory aspect of any meal. So sprouts are a true “Super Food.”
Plus Wild About Sprouts® have approximately 5 times more protein than romaine lettuce and 2 times more protein than conventionally grown sprouts. And Wild About Sprouts® have approximately 1.5 times more fiber than lettuce and 2.6 times more fiber than conventionally grown sprouts.
