Germs are grown seedling with small roots. The influence of moisture, light and heat makes the seeds germinate. Unlike sprouts, sprouted seeds will be eaten completely with the seed and the roots. They contain all the nutrients, minerals, enzymes and vitamins. 

For the germination of seeds in a Vitaseed machine, are for example the following sorts suitable:



Alfalfa Medicago sativo Onion Allium cepa
Basil Ocimum basilicum Pea Pisum sativum
Black Mustard Sinapis nigra Pink Beetroot Beta vulgaris conditiva
Broccoli Calabrese Brassica oleracea botrytis cymosa Pink Kohlrabi Brassica oleracea gongyloides
Broccoli Raab Brassica rapa cymosa Radish China Rose Raphanus sativus
Buckwheat Polygonum fagopyrum escule Radish Daikon Raphanus sativus
Carrot Daucus carota Radish Sango Raphanus sativus
Chickpea Cicer arietinum Rape Brassica napus
Chicory Cichorium intybus  Red Adzuki Bean Vigna angularis
Chinese Leek Allium tuberosum Red Beetroot Beta vulgaris conditiva
Crimson Clover Trifolium incanatum Red cabbage Brassica oleracea capitata rubra
Dill Anetum graveolens Red Clover Trifolium pratense
Endive Cichorium endivia Rocket Cultivated Eruca sativa
Fennel Foeniculum vulgare Soya Bean Gycine max
Fenugreek Trigonella foenum graecum Sunflower Glycine max
Garden Cress Lepidium sativum Swede Brassica napus napobrassica
Green Mung Bean Vigna radiata Swiss Chard Beta vulgaris cycla
Leek Allium porrum Wheat Triticum
Lentil Lens culinaris White Mustard Sinapis alba


The sprouts are seeds, that are grown in soil, are consumed without the seed corn or the root. They can be used in salads or to garnish a dish.

Certain seeds, such as whatercress, roquette or linseed develop a delicate nutritional slime on germination. These species need for healthy development a breeding ground where they can root.

Your Vitaseed machine can't work like on a breeding ground, therefore you can not draw sprouts.

For the germination of sprouts, are for example the following sorts suitable:


Basil Ocimum basilicum Rocket Cultivated Eruca sativa
Buckwheat Polygonum fagopyrum escule Sunflower Helianthus annuus
Leek Allium porrum Wheat Triticum
Pea Pisum sativum White Mustard Sinapis alba

Vitaseed Aqua

Sufficient water and food. Human needs can be reduced to this simple denominator. Because of the unequal distribution of recourses and means of production, the reality is:    



Vitaseed Food

Seedlings and sprouts are natural and effective food for those who want to improve and remain their health.
