To the botanical expert the Biosta Sprouter is a germinating apparatus. To health conscious individuals it is an exceptional easy to use sprouting system for making a variety of nutritious sprouts right in the kitchen.
The Biosta Sprouter has three nesting 7-3/4" diameter sprouting trays, a water collection tray and a lid. Using the sprouter is simplicity in itself. First insert the red drainage caps in each tray. Then cover the ribbed surface of each tray with a thin layer of seeds. Next pour approximately 1 pint of warm water into the top tray. The patent pending design allows the trays to successively drain into one another - leaving approximately 1-2 tablespoons of water in the ribbed bottoms of each tray. This is just sufficient to produce the proper humidity for quick germination. For small seeds such as alfalfa, cress or mustard you only need to re-water once in 4 days; for large seeds such as wheatgrass berries and soybeans, you should re-water once a day. You can purchase a variety of seeds at health foods stores.
Depending on room temperature and lighting conditions your sprouts should be ready in between 3 and 5 days after initial watering. We keep our sprouter on the kitchen counter and use it on an on-going basis. Not only are the sprouts you make guaranteed fresh (because you germinated them) but they are considerably more economical than buying them at the supermarket. The Biosta Sprouter is made of tinted green plastic and comes with complete instructions and several recipes. The Biosta is made in Québec, Canada.
