Freshlife Automatic Sprouter From Tribest Offers Year-Round Fresh Sprouts and Produce

Innovative system provides controlled environment to grow fresh wheatgrass, micro-greens and sprouts without soil or plumbing!

Santa Fe Springs, CA (November 2004) – Tribest Corp., a leading designer of high-quality small kitchen appliances for healthy lifestyles, is expanding the availability of the Freshlife™ Automatic Sprouter (Model 2000) within the housewares and health food / nutritional product marketplaces.

On a weekly basis, consumers flock to local grocers and community farmer’s markets to get the best and freshest produce possible for themselves and their families. Besides becoming costly, finding the freshest organic produce can be very time consuming which leaves many health - conscious consumers seeking other options for that “fresh from the garden” taste. To address the needs of this growing market, Tribest Corporation’s Freshlife™ Automatic Sprouter makes it easier and more convenient for people to do their own organic gardening right on their kitchen counter and enjoy the health benefits of fresh sprouts and wheatgrass all year round for merely pennies a day. Just fill the basin with water, add seeds, and plug it in. And unlike traditional sprout growing methods that require watering two or three times a day, Freshlife features an advanced sprinkler system that detects environmental conditions within the unit and quietly waters the sprouts automatically. What’s more, there’s no soil, no hassle, and no green thumb required.

The Freshlife™ Automatic Sprouter can also be easily expanded. With the purchase of an additional sprout barrel, users can grow two times the sprouts. All they have to do is add the second barrel on top, place the seeds and plug it in.

Due to their high concentration of proteins, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, bio-flavonoids, t-cells and other nutrients, fresh wheatgrass, micro-greens, and sprouts are extremely popular with health-conscious consumers. “Sprouts and micro-greens are extremely nutritious as they contain four times the amount of protein and 39 times more Beta-Carotene as lettuce,” says Tribest Corp. President, Jae Choi. “As rapidly growing baby plants, they are also concentrated with 10-50 times more vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes than at any other stage of a plant’s life.”

By using organic seeds consumers can also enjoy fresh sprouts that are free from chemicals and pesticides. Therefore Tribest also offers Sproutman’s Sprouting Seeds – ideal for use with the Freshlife Automatic Sprouter. “The Freshlife Automatic Sprouter by Tribest is the best sprouter I’ve seen in a long time,” says Steve ‘Sproutman’ Meyerowitz, author of The Kitchen Garden Cookbook, and the nation’s most recognized sprout exert. “With this convenient device, people can watch their seeds grow into health-giving sprouts right before their eyes. In as little as four to seven days, depending on the variety, they can harvest fresh sprouts for a salad, juice, sandwich, casserole or for hundreds of other recipes.”
