Superfood Crash Course

Microgreens vs. sprouts

Microgreens are young plants that grow after their germination process only through sufficient daylight. The resulting chlorophyll provides the trademark of the greens: the colourful leaves. The growth time is 7-14 days, depending on the variety.

Sprouts are seedlings that can grow without direct daylight and only through water. Since the superfood is harvested after only 2-5 days, and thus no chlorophyll is formed, this type of superfood is usually even brighter when eaten.

4 Good reasons


Both microgreens and sprouts contain many vitamins and minerals: so a real immune system booster!


Both superfoods provide you with a real taste experience and countless possibilities for use in the kitchen for salads, wraps, soups and more!


Unecological agriculture and long transport routes are largely eliminated by growing one's own crops!


Microgreens & sprouts offer an efficient solution for self-sufficient, healthy nutrition, available even in urban areas.

4 Cultivation types

✔️Microgreens ✔️Soil ✔️Place requirement: medium

With the Keimgrün starter pack you definitely take the most pragmatic approach to growing your microgreens. Everything you need is in this package: from the right pots and trays to lots of seeds and organic soil. The only thing you have to do is find a suitable place: ideally at the window on an area of approx. 30x30cm.

✔️Microgreens ✔️Soil ✔️Place requirement: little

The Grow-Grow Nut is also suitable for growing microgreens. You should opt for this if you don't want to give away too much space and want to make it look nice. In addition to the coconut tray, the package also includes the matching seeds and dried coconut soil bricks, which are soaked in water before use.

✔️Microgreens ✔️No soil ✔️Place requirement: little

The cress sieve is particularly suitable for slime-forming varieties such as rocket and cress, which by far feel most at home here. The set consists of a ceramic cress sieve and a metal grid for insertion made of stainless steel. We have also developed a starter pack with matching seeds for this!

✔️Sprouts ✔️No soil ✔️Place requirement: little

The sprout jar is probably the most convenient and simplest approach to growing your superfood at home. The seeds are soaked in the jar for a few hours and then rinsed twice a day - without soil and a lot of space. We have put together several starter packs for the Keimgrün sprout jar!
