Year Supply The Nutrition Basics Sprouting Mix with Salad Mix or Salad Sprouting Mix alone.
The Preparedness Seeds 1 Year Supply of Sprouting Seeds will supply one person with a year’s supply of sprouts. This provides one and a half cups of sprouted seed per day. Sprouts are an important part of our food storage plan because they can take the place of fruits and vegetables when they are not available.
Sprouts are rich in vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, chlorophyll and protein. They contain little fat, but what fat they do have is good for the body. Sprouts have the greatest nutrient activity of all raw foods. This is because they are alive and still growing. The seeds when sprouted are at the peak of their life force.
Sprouting seeds will magnify their nutritional value. It triples the amount of vitamin A, increases the vitamin B content and the vitamin C rises by a factor of 5 to 6 times. The body will digest sprouts in half the time it does other foods. This is due to starches being converted to simple sugars and proteins into amino acid building blocks.
Sprouting seeds is easier than planting a garden outside. We grow them in the comfort of our own home and they are ready for eating in 2 to 7 days, depending on the variety. It takes less than 2 minutes per day to grow the most nutritionally dense foods available. Sprouts can be put on sandwiches, salads, smoothies, hot dishes or any other food to which you want to add nutrients and enhance taste.
When the time comes that we need to rely on our food storage, having fresh fruits and vegetables in our diet may not be an option for extended periods of time. Sprouts will help give our bodies the nutrition they need. Grown in the heat of summer or when the ground is frozen solid, the nutrients provided by sprouts are the same. Having sprouts in our food storage could be one of the major elements that see us through hard times and keep us in good health.
We do not label or identify our seeds as being organic sprouting seeds because the word organic is not an official term in the United States. The term that is used to meet USDA organic standards is CERTIFIED ORGANIC sometimes called USDA CERTIFIED. This would mean the growing plot and the seeds meet specific standards and regulations set forth by the National Organic Program (NOP).
Please note a 6 gallon bucket of sprouting seeds can weigh 45 to 50 pounds, therefore; the weight and the place it is going could necessitate an additional shipping charge. Our shopping cart is based upon a dollar amount purchased and not so much the weight of each item. If there is a shipping charge variation we will send a PayPal request for the difference before the order is finalized.
