View Full Version : Sprouted grains in your healthstore..??

I suddenly realized that you can buy all kinds of sprouted seeds and beans
in my country, but I have never seen sprouted grains
* How is that in your country; is there a reason for this phenomenon?

WOW - I don't know. You should ask someone at your HFS.

* I first mailed the sprouting company, they sell their stuff to the healthstore.
They didn't answer (as a lot of companies just don't do....) so I asked
a guy, with much vegan-experience, in the healthstore: the answer is that sprouts of grains grow very quick, to quick to make it possible to sell them in stores. You would turn up selling plants and not sprouts...
Always glad to receive an answer...

I work in a Food coop that sells lots of grains for sprouting, but no actual sprouted grains.
If any store sold sprouted grains, they'd be in the fresh food section in the fridge, next to the sprouted alfalfa seeds and mung beans. I've never seen sprouted grains though. Most people who are hard core sprouters do it themselves, so maybe there isn't yet a market for it like there is for the alfalfa etc.

Hi klomasius, the reason for this is, as I said, that these sprouts grow
to fast; you can't store them for a few days. There is not time enough between the sprout- and plant stadium to store/sell them.
I am not spouting myself, but I can imagine.
