View Full Version : Question about Chia Seed Sprouts
05-11-2010, 09:29 AM
According to Brian Clement, chia seed sprouts are one of the most healthful foods on the planet and a tiny amount each day meets all your omega requirements. He went on to describe the sprouting process and it involved a clay pot but I kinda got lost. Can you not sprout them the same way you sprout anything else? Is a clay pot neccessary? Do I need to find an Obama-head Chia Pet in order to get my chia sprouts?

Scheer: Yes. However, chia seeds are too sticky for conventional sprouting jars. They do sprout very readily when spread out on earthenware. Thus, the Chia pet! The Mexicans have long made earthenware in the shapes of heads and pigs to grow chia sprouts. They dubbed the head the equivalent to "Hairless Harry" and delighted to see Hairless Harry grow green hair. Meanwhile, even the sprout bags sold in many health food stores are very efficient for sprouting chia seeds. So eat your chia pet sprouts.
