We are a UK – London based company that specialises in designing products from natural materials. Our passion for sprouting seeds led us to design and manufacture our own range of clay sprouters. We have developed an expertise on sprouting seeds in earthenware and supply to you the GAIA sprouting range via our on-line SHOP.
Our GAIA Sprouter is a hand-crafted, earthenware set made from locally sourced clay. The unglazed trays of the GAIA sprouter (unlike glass or plastic sprouters) can provide a breathable and moist regulating environment. This simple system, imitating natural conditions, can ensure steady growth without the risk of drowning or drying up seeds. The glazes used are lead-free and non-toxic.
The GAIA Sprouters are universal so are ideal for SPROUTING, GERMINATING AND GROWING PLANT SHOOTS, MICRO-GREENS AND GRASSES without soil or compost.
Why do we believe in sprouting?
Sprouting beans or seeds is an extraordinarily simple process with exceptional benefits for the human body. Our body needs fresh, plant-based food to maintain optimal health and sprouts play an important role here. Sprouts are packed with VITAMINS, MINERALS, BIO-AVAILABLE ENZYMES, PHYTO-NUTRIENTS, AMINO-ACIDS and PROTEINS and significantly, those which are easily digested and absorbed. This means that our body is actually able to benefit from every single nutrient.
For sprouts to grow, only a small space and basic equipment are required. Growth does not depend on season, nor does it require any fertilizers, hard work or much of your time.
Sprouts can be eaten raw or after minimal thermal processing. Delicious in salads, soups, sandwiches, juiced or as nibbles! See our recipes for some suggestions.
