1 Sprouts Microgreens and Sprouts

2 The Production of Seeds Seed: A plant reproductive package containing 1)Embryo 2)Stored nutrients for developing embryo 3)Protective coating. Prevents... - Desiccation - Predators

3 Parts of young plants Seed leaves: Part of the embryo of the plant. The first set of leaves. Usually have a different shape than the rest of the leaves True Leaves: Leaves that develop after germination.

4 Sprouts and Microgreens Sprouts: Seeds that have started growing but have not used up the stored nutrients. Microgreens: Created when sprouts are allowed to grow for a longer period of time. They are generally harvested just as the true leaves start to develop. Note: If sprouts are allowed to grow for too long they use up too much of the nutrients and start to die

5 Most popular sprouts and Microgreens: Grasses and grains Alfalfa (caution have been cases of e coli in alfalfa from cattle run off) Wheat Barley Flax Sunflower

6 Most popular sprouts and Microgreens: Grasses and grains Alfalfa (caution have been cases of e coli in alfalfa from cattle run off) Wheat Barley Flax Sunflower Brassica Mustard greens, Broccoli (healthiest option) Kale

8 Benefits of Sprouts and Microgreens Fast food: Ready in a few days Has 7 times the nutrition of the mature plant Protein: -mature plant has 15g/100g -sprouts 105g/100g Cheep form of nutrition Can be grown in home by anyone

9 Growing Sprouts Jar method: 1)Place a table spoon of seeds in a jar. 2) Cover the lid with mesh and secure mesh with an elastic.

10 Growing Sprouts Jar method: 1) Place a table spoon of seeds in a jar. 2) Cover the lid with mesh and secure mesh with an elastic. 3) Rinse seeds then soak them for a few hours.

11 Growing Sprouts Jar method: 1) Place a table spoon of seeds in a jar. 2) Cover the lid with mesh and secure mesh with an elastic. 3) Rinse seeds then soak them for a few hours. 4) Poor out the water and let the jar sit upside down to allow excess water to drip out

12 Growing Sprouts Jar method: 1) Place a table spoon of seeds in a jar. 2) Cover the lid with mesh and secure mesh with an elastic. 3) Rinse seeds then soak them for a few hours. 4) Poor out the water and let the jar sit upside down to allow excess water to drip out 5) Leave seeds in jar to grow for set number of days and rinse twice daily

13 Growing Microgreens Commercial 1)Sprouts are grown on large trays lined with absorbent growing mats

14 Growing Microgreens Commercial 1)Sprouts are grown on large trays lined with absorbent growing mats 2)Seeds are sprinkled over the tray and grown covered for the first few days

15 Growing Microgreens Commercial 1)Sprouts are grown on large trays lined with absorbent growing mats 2)Seeds are sprinkled over the tray and grown covered for the first few days 3)Once the sprouts have reached the desired length the cover is removed

16 Growing Microgreens Commercial 1)Seeds are grown on large trays lined with absorbent growing mats 2)Seeds are sprinkled over the tray and grown covered for the first few days 3)Once the sprouts have reached the desired length the cover is removed 4)Sprouts are allowed to green under the fluorescent light and grown until the true leaves appear

17 Why Sprouts Go Bad Reasons a sprouted batch would go bad: 1)Unclean sprouting container 2)Seeds are not rinsed well enough 3)Seeds sit in stagnant water for too long 4)Seeds are allowed to dry out 5)Not enough air flow 6)Left out too long (can also happen if they germinate too slowly)

18 Assignment Next class: Growing sprouts using the jar method
