Herb sprouts may sound great until you start to grow the on you own, so we do not recommend them as first sprouting experience, more like experiment when you are mature in producing sprouts.

Fresh herbs like basil, cilantro, dill, parsley, and mint are used for their flavor and aroma in culinary applications.

The market demand for sprouts has witnessed significant growth due to several factors.
- Firstly, there is a heightened focus on health and wellness, prompting consumers to seek out healthier food options. Sprouts, known for their nutritional value and low calorie content, are seen as a nutritious choice.
- Additionally, the rise of vegetarian and vegan diets has increased the demand for sprouts, which serve as a valuable source of protein, fiber, and essential nutrients for individuals following these dietary preferences.
- The fresh and local food movement has also contributed to the popularity of sprouts. Consumers now prioritize fresh, locally sourced ingredients for their perceived quality, sustainability, and support for local farmers. Sprouts, which can be grown year-round in controlled environments, align well with this demand.
- The culinary versatility of sprouts has played a role in their market demand as well. They can be incorporated into various dishes, such as salads, sandwiches, stir-fries, and smoothies, enhancing both texture and flavor. Chefs and home cooks appreciate the versatility of sprouts in diversifying their recipes.
- The growing awareness of superfoods has further propelled the demand for sprouts. Certain sprouts, like broccoli sprouts, contain concentrated levels of beneficial compounds, such as sulforaphane. This association with superfoods has elevated the desirability of sprouts among health-conscious consumers.
