Adzuki beans have been an important part of Eastern Asian cuisine for thousands of years. Today, they are enjoyed worldwide for their versatility and robust nutrient profile, and are so popular they are even used in desserts in China and Japan. Easier to digest than cooked legumes, sprouts also contain more enzymes and less starch. This bean takes a little extra rinsing compared to other sprouting seeds to keep moist.
Sprouting is as easy as 1—2—3! Simply soak your seeds in water overnight (about 8 to 12 hours), place them in your sprouting container, then rinse at least twice daily until sprouts have reached the length you desire. See inside the packet for more information about growing sprouts.
Sprouts can be grown in a variety of containers. The easiest method is to use the Botanical Interests Seed Sprouter™. It provides optimal air circulation and drainage, and has removable tray dividers that allow you to grow up to four different batches of sprouts at once.
Sprout Seed Safety: To ensure you are purchasing the safest possible sprouting seeds, a sample from each lot we receive is sent to an independent laboratory where it must test negative for foodborne pathogens including Escherichia coli (E. coli), Salmonella, Listeria, and Staphococcus aureus (Staph). For maximum safety it is recommended that you disinfect the outside of your seeds and your sprouting container prior to sprouting.
