Seeds love to be sprouted in these handmade sprouting pots.
The Sprouting pot is a sprouting dish made from self gathered natural clay that seeds love. Clay is a good material for sprouting as it absorbs water and ventilates. I wished to develop a product for the clay that I collected which would combine earthyness, local materials and sustainable development. The pot is also a beautiful artifact to be placed on a table so it does not need to hidden in a cupboard.
Why sprouts are so healthy: “The main reason for eating sprouts is about nutrition and digestion. It’s essentially about getting the most benefit out of a plant in the most biologically concentrated form. When you sprout foods, you increase proteolytic enzymes that make both carbohydrates and proteins digestible. While your body produces proteolytic enzymes when you eat foods that don’t contain digestive enzymes, your body is forced to manufacture them (instead of making enzymes it should be making). After a while, your body’s ability to produce the right enzymes wanes along with its ability to fight off disease.”
