What makes sprouted seeds so healthy?

Sprouting breathes life into a dormant seed, enhancing it’s flavor, texture, nutrition, and digestibility.

For many people, grains and beans cause digestive discomfort. It is widely recognized that pre-soaking beans can help ease the discomfort, but what you may not realize is soaking and sprouting grains has the same effect. The sprouting process naturally activates starch, protein and lipid degrading enzymes that “pre-digest” a grain, seed or pulse. Sprouting does not remove gluten but for some people who have discomfort digesting wheat products, the sprouting process may aid in their ability to digest and enjoy.

While whole grains, seeds, and beans are a good source of nutrition, they also contain phytic acid, an enzyme that inhibits our digestive systems from fully absorbing the seed’s nutrients. The sprouting process reduces phytic acid, but how much depends on the seed and sprouting time. For example, chickpeas sprouted for 48 hours showed a 67% decrease. Sprouting converts the nutrients that are already present in the seed into a more bioavailable form for our bodies.

Vegan-certified vs. vegan-friendly products

All products sold at FAIR/SQUARE are free from animal-derived ingredients and have never been tested on animals.

  • Some products show a vegan certification logo. This means that they have been made in a production facility dedicated to vegan products and have been certified by an independent 3rd party organization.
  • Some products show only the word 'vegan' on the packaging. This means that the manufacturer guarantees that the product does not contain animal-derived ingredients but they did not go through the process of third party certification (yet).
  • Some products are 'accidentally vegan' or vegan-friendly. This means they do not contain ingredients of animal origin but they could have been made in a facility that makes other products containing animal-derived ingredients such as milk, eggs etc.
  • Due to industry regulations in regards to allergies, you may find a warning such as 'may contain: milk' under the ingredients list. This does not mean milk is in the product, but there's a slight chance of cross-contamination.
