A 6,000 year old (pseudo) grain which was a sacred staple of the Inca diet, Quinoa produces super nutritious sprouts very quickly.
Note: Quinoa contains a relatively high concentration of saponins, which are a natural occurring compound. Saponins may result in an allergic reaction - including feeling ill. For most of us all they do is make the water sudsy and a bit thick which can make sprouting less easy, but please be aware that Quinoa Sprouts are not for everyone.
Our Quinoa comes from a source which is certified organic.

Soak20 - 30 minutesThe amount of time your seeds should soak in cool water. Soaking is how we begin the sprouting process in most cases.
Rinse / Drain2 times per dayHow often your seeds should be watered. Rinsing thoroughly and then draining as much water as possible are key components to growing great sprouts.
Harvest1 - 3 daysThe time it takes to grow a finished Sprout, or other crop (Micro-Greens, Grass, Greens) from a dry Seed. Note: This "finished" Sprout is our preference. you may grow them for as long as you want! In fact, we suggest that you taste them at every rinse to discover when you like them best.
Yield1.5 to 1The amount of Sprouts, Grass, Greens or Micro-Greens produced by 1 unit of Seed. For Example 2:1 means that 1 pound of Seed will produce 2 pounds of Sprouts or whatever crop you are growing. You do not have to grow them all at once of course, unless you wish to =:-D
