Sprouted black beans are a great addition to all of your favourite Latin American foods! They have a subtler taste and more delicate texture than their unsprouted counterparts, and they are wonderful whole, mashed to make refried beans, or pureed into soups and dips. As a bonus, the water that you cook the beans in is a delicious addition to soups and chili.
It is widely recommended that dried black beans be soaked overnight to reduce cook time and ease digestive discomfort, however sprouted black beans have already been through a soaking, sprouting and drying process so no pre-soaking is required. This makes preparation much quicker and more convenient!

Storage & Shelf Life
After sprouting, we carefully dry the beans back down to their shelf stable moisture levels. This means you can store them as you would store unsprouted beans – in a cool, dry place.
Once you cook your sprouted pulses, they should be stored in an air-tight container in the fridge.
Shelf life: 18 months
