These seeds are specially selected, tested, and stored for high germination sprouting use. For best results, store the seeds in a dry (but not refrigerated) place.
Researchers have recently discovered a number of exciting phytonutrients with amazing health protecting properties. One phytonutrient derived from broccoli is Sulforaphane. Researchers have determined that broccoli sprouts contain a much greater Sulforaphane potential than broccoli florets. Enjoy these sprouts regularly.

Store in a dark environment for several days. On about the fourth day, place in indirect sunlight to develop chlorophyll in sprouts. Rinse and drain daily until sprouts are ready ( about 3-5 days). Add 1/2 tsp. of NOW® Citric Acid Powder per pint of rinsing water to reduce mold formation. Enjoy zesty broccoli seeds alone or as part of a salad.
