SPROUTS AND TEMPERATURE

Sprouts thrive at temperatures of 19-23 degrees.
In this temperature sprouts grow quickly and well.
 
At lower temperatures the small plants grow slower.
And at temperatures below 10 C° their growth
typically stop completely.
 

COLD SPROUTS LAST LONGER

You can use the lower temperature in a cold corner
of your kitchen or on the top shelf of the refrigerator
to your advantage.
 
Slightly cooled sprouts can often keep fresh, crisp and
maintain their delicious taste for up to a week after
they are ready to eat.
 
The secret is to let the sprouts remain in the sprouter,
until you use them in your food.
  

CONTINUED RINSING

 Sprouts still grow a little bit and are still very much alive
despite cold temperatures. Therefore, they still need to
be rinsed daily with fresh, cool water.
 
If you keep the sprouts in the refrigerator, you can
simply rinse them once every day. Remember to drain
excess water out of the bottom tray so that the sprouts
are only slightly damp.
 
Now you can enjoy your sprouts a little longer.
