Why sprouts prefer a bag to a jar
Jars are designed for holding liquids. Sprout Bags are designed for sprouting sprouts. It’s logic.
Loads of people sprout in mason jars, and we love that so many people are sprouting. But a mason jar is not designed to be a sprouter. Sprouts crave breathability and glass jars are anything but breathable. When you put jars and sprouts together, you make the perfect climate to encourage mold—and a bad batch of sprouts.
That’s why we created the Sprout Bag. It’s even more convenient and durable than a jar, and it allows your sprouts to thrive and breathe! The bag is made of durable organic hemp that lasts a lifetime with proper care. And it is specifically designed with a weave that encourages airflow and promotes happy, healthy sprouts.
We’ve taken our Sprout Bags everywhere—dinner parties, camping, hotels, long hikes, on planes… we’ve even hung them on the rear view mirror during road trips. You can take your sprout bags anywhere, the sky is literally the limit (imagine this: our sustainable Sprout Bags growing food on the International Space Station!).
Check out our basic Sprout Bag instructions here, or consider some of our automatic sprouters if you’re looking for an even easier option.
Let’s get cookin’!
Sprouts aren’t just a garnish. They’re some of the most versatile foods around. Here are some creative ideas for incorporating more sprouts in your diet…
- A nutritious salad base. Mix varieties like daikon radish, broccoli blend, and our salad mix for a flavorful bed of greens that beats lettuce anyday.
- Blend into green smoothies for a potent punch.
