Did You Know? Almonds are the only alkaline-forming nut, and one of only a few alkalising proteins. Alkalising foods help you to maintain a healthy pH throughout your body.
Sprouting your almonds has the following benefits:
- Increases nutrient density
- Makes the almonds more easily digestible
- Makes the almonds more alkalising
- Neutralises “anti-nutrients” like phytic acid & enzyme inhibitors
- Convenient, cost-effective & can be done all year round
Sprouts are a great example of “medicinal” food, helping to protect your system against all sorts of ailments.
Suitable for sprouting and general consumption.

Please Note: This product consists of the sprouting seeds only; sprouting jars & stand are not included. You will need a full standard sprouting kit to grow your seeds.
- Add 3-4Tbsp of your dry seeds to a clean sprouting jar; enough to lightly cover the bottom of an upright jar.
- Cover the sprouting jar with the mesh screen & secure it with a rubber band.
- Cover your dry seeds with 2-4cm water & soak for 6-8 hours or overnight.
- Drain & rinse in fresh water, swirling gently while draining to disperse the seeds across the surface of the sprouting jar. Place the jar at an angle on your sprouting stand.
- Keep your sprouting jar in natural light but never in direct sunlight. Rinse your seeds 2-3 times a day in cool water. The water should be rinsed clear.
- Harvest within 2-3 days of the “tails” and/or greenery appearing from the seeds.
- Drain the sprouts well & leave 2-4 hours to dry on your sprouting stand, before transferring to an airtight, covered storage container.
- Enjoy your sprouts in 3-7 days; keep them refrigerated in an airtight container. Start sprouting new seeds every 2- 3 days for a continuous, fresh supply.
- Never eat sprouts that have started to smell bad.
- Always wash your containers thoroughly between plantings.
- Remove any broken or damaged seeds before you start sprouting.
- Double rinsing is recommended for beans & legumes.
