WHAT IS THAT WHITE STUFF GROWING ON MY SPROUTS?
Seed Storage: Seeds should be stored at 60 degrees Farhenheit or below. A refrigerator or freezer is fine. Stored properly seeds will last for about a year or two. This will also keep the bugs at bay.
Which seeds are Legumes? The following seeds are legumes: Alfalfa, Crimson Clover, Red Clover, Red Lentils, Green Lentils, French Green Lentil, Green Peas, Garbanzo, Soy Beans.
Which seeds are Gluten Free? The following seeds are Gluten Free: Fenugreek, Mung Bean, Red Lentil, French Lentil, Green Lentil, Speckled Peas for Shoots, Whole Buckwheat, Buckwheat Groats, Soy Beans, Black Turtle Beans, Popcorn, Garbanzo, Green Pea, Adzuki Bean, Hulled Sunflower, Red Pea, Adzuki Bean for Shoots, Yellow Mustard, Baby Black Sunflower, All Radish, Flax, All Clovers, Cress, Arugula, Pumpkin, Sesame, All Quinoas, Alfalfa, Chia, Broccoli, Onion, Garlic, Dill, Swiss Chard. Red Cabbage, Kale. There is a cross-contamination.
Most seeds can be soaked for 24 hours. This is OK to do. I know, usually we are told about 8 to 10 hours, but really, if soaking a seed is the most important part of the sprouting process, why not give the little guys a few extra hours?
Some seeds NOT to soak too long: amaranth, millet, quinoa. These seeds are really very tiny and do not do well when soaked long. They need only to be soaked for a few hours, not longer than 4 hours.
Some seeds NOT to soak at all: chia, cress, arugula and flax. These seeds are gelatinous seeds and form a gel like sac around the seed in the presence of water. They sprout best in soil, or on a terra cotta clay sprouter or with a growing medium. Just sprinkle them dry and then soak. When they are wet they do not behave well.
