Why Sproutman's Organic Sprouting Seeds are best.
We source globally from select, trusted farms and importers. This allows us to offer an eclectic variety, and a consistently great quality.
Every batch is independently lab tested. We only buy from sources that provide a certificate of analysis such as this. The labs test for things like E. Coli, salmonella, yeast, and molds. Every bag gets stabbed with a 24 inch test tube to collect a sample. Every pallet gets a lot #. You get the same number on the back of your packet. The samples get grown and tested. Nothing in microbiology is 100%, but these tests get us pretty close to guaranteeing purity. In addition, it may be of some comfort to know that there has never been a case of salmonella from home-grown sprouts.
Only the cleanest batches are sent to us to be test-grown in our kitchen. We grow the seeds using the same sprout growers we recommend to you, to ensure that we’ll all share in the same results. Not all seeds are equal! Every seed is tested before it's allowed to go to packaging and the Sproutman name is put on it.
