Pre-Mixed Sprout & Microgreen Mixes

2 reviews

Sprouting mixes developed and formulated by Origins Wild Diet foods is a simple and easy way to enrich your bird's diet!

Sprout until the seeds, grains, and legumes barely show a tail for the most amount of nutrition. This is when the digestive enzyme "amylase" is at its highest content. Amylase is the digestive enzyme necessary for the break down of starches. Since birds do not produce amylase in their mouth (beak), it is very important that seeds, legumes, and grains are sprouted correctly.  

Or, you can continue to grow your seedlings into "tender greens." Tender greens are low in tough cellulose insoluble fiber (the kind they cannot properly digest) and high in hemicellulose soluble fiber (the kind that is good and gentle to their digestive tract). 

Each sprout mix is sold in 16-ounce packages. Except for the items you order as "Pre-Sprouted" and then gently dehydrated; those are sold in 8oz pkgs. Please be sure to use the "Notes" box to list the items you want Pre-Sprouted and also choose the "PreSprout" option at the top of the page. (We do not sell awakened almonds on this page; please do not enter those in the "Notes" box. 

Delicious-Nutritious Basic Sprout Mix - 16oz

It's best to sprout just until you can barely see the "tail." At this time amylase, the digestive enzyme that helps break down starch is most abundant in the sprout.

  1. Organic mung beans
  2. Organic radish seed
  3. Organic green lentils
  4. Organic peas
  5. Organic sunflower seed (high in B vitamins and zinc)
  6. Organic quinoa

Grass-elicious! Sprout Mix (Grassy Mix) - 16oz - DISCONTINUED

Our grass mix is made up of 6 different seeds to grow into grass using organic potting soil (sold elsewhere). Grow until about 4-5 inches tall to maintain the "hemicellulose" fiber that is easy for parrots to digest. 

Or grow until the grasses turn to see and feed only the green seed discarding the tough "cellulose" grass parrots cannot properly digest. You can also just barely sprout the mix to serve as healthy, raw and yummy sprouts! 

Seeds in 16 ounces of Grassy Mix: 

  1. Organic Barley
  2. Organic Millet
  3. Organic Oats
  4. Organic Rye
