Suggested Usage & Storage

Place two tablespoons of seeds in a sprouting jar with three times as much water as seeds. Soak overnight. Rinse seeds and drain twice daily, store in low humidity without direct sunlight. About the fourth day, place rinsed sprout jar in indirect sunlight to develop green chlorophyll leaves.

Note: We recommend adding 1/4 tsp. NOW Real Food® Citric Acid Powder to each rinse cycle as a preservative against spoilage. Sprouting at temperatures above 80° F and humidity of 70% may be impossible.
