Many Brassicas come together beautifully in a symbiotic blend of delicious nutrition! Research has shown that antioxidant content can increase when certain sprouts grow together. We base our mixes on taste, texture and growth rate for the most part, but we considered "science" too, when we made this mix up.


All of the seeds in Long Life Mix come from sources which are certified organic.


Note: We sell Long Life Mix by the 1/2 pound, and it can also be used to grow Long Life Micro-Greens.

FREE SHIPPING on domestic orders $60 and up.

About

8 Brassicas combine to make another lovely, delicious and of course nutritious sprout mix. In this case you get high levels of antioxidants (We aren't claiming that mind you, but the statement is based on published research) as well as the usual wealth of vitamins, minerals and amino acids found in sprouts.

Note: Canadian and US researchers have found that Brassicas contain antioxidants such as sulfurophane. And that a symbiotic relationship exists where combining brassicas increases their total soluble antioxidants. It's a family thing =:-D All of the seeds in Long Life Mix are Brassicas.

Notes
Long Life is one of our more difficult to grow mixes.  Brassicas are all a bit challenging due to their relatively thick hulls, but the addition of mucilaginous seeds adds a level of difficulty to sprouting this mix.  We grow this mix at home - in an Easy Sprout Sprouter - so I know it grows well, but I also know how demanding it can be.  You must concentrate on Draining very Thoroughly after every Rinse.  Rinse in the coldest water your tap offers and if it's hot and humid you might add a 3rd Rinse/Drain every day.  Due to the hulls of these seeds you will always find a bunch of them on the bottom of your sprouter.  Some will float to the top but many will sink.  This gives the appearance of un-sprouted seeds.  To be sure there are always some of those, but most are just hulls.  The final weight of your crop will be what it should be if you follow our instructions, so don't waste time wondering about the hulls and seeds at the bottom of your sprouter.  Do be sure to watch our video of growing Broccoli Sprouts as the procedure is identical.  You'll find that video by clicking the aqua blue rectangle to the right - and then clicking the Video Tab on that new page.  Don't let me scare you away.  Though you have to focus a bit more on Long Life it's totally worth the effort.

  • THE BEST!
    It might be expensive but I find a little goes a long way for this one. I put it on my avocado and eggs in the morning, in my salads at lunch and even in my soups at dinner! I like this mix in the soups because it has such a pop of flavor and doesn't wilt into the soup. It has a spicy kick but just enough to add a lot to a basic meal.

  • Worth the price
    I'd give 5 stars except that it is so expensive. Long life is great tasting with mostly mild flavors but the occasional kick of spice. Radish I think.
    I tried long life after getting good at growing broccoli sprouts. It is just as easy to grow but it did take me a few batches to get good at growing because I wasn't draining enough. It tastes even better then the broccoli. Now I grow one tablespoon of long life and 2 tablespoons of broccoli together. It is less spicy but really good that way.
