SproutsIO brings clarity to the process of growing food.
By offering transparency into each input of the cultivation process, SproutsIO enables growers more control over what they eat. This transparency leads to more informed decision making and improvement of overall wellness.
To offer additional transparency to our community of growers, we have included below detailed information about important inputs to each element of our product.
The SproutsIO device is designed and manufactured in the United States from US and foreign components. The vast majority of its components are produced domestically. The only exception are a small number of electrical components which can only be sourced abroad.
Our device is made from Tritan™ plastic, a safe and durable material used in professional-grade kitchen appliances. Tritan™ does not contain BPA, BPS or any other bisphenols. It is also free of any estrogenic and androgenic activity (EA-free). Tritan™ plastic is shatterproof and maintains its look and feel over time, even with continued use in professional environments.
The SproutsIO device is certified for safety and security. We are proud to have earned UL, NSF, and FCC certifications.
sIO Seed Refill
The sIO seed refill contains everything you need to grow with SproutsIO – seeds, growing media, and nutrients, contained in a bio-plastic shell to make the growing process easy. The entire sIO is made from plant-based materials for responsible disposal and positive environmental impact.
Our seeds are sourced from US-based seed banks and specialty purveyors. All seeds we offer are organic and non-GMO. Each seed offering is rigorously tested for suitability in the SproutsIO system, delicious flavor, and overall quality.
Our plant nutrients contain several minerals that are responsibly mined. These mined minerals contain nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium which are the three primary macronutrients for plants.
Additional macronutrients and micronutrients are synthesized. Synthetic nutrients are necessary because pure forms of these minerals are uncommon, making them difficult to mine.
Many of the metallic micronutrients (iron, zinc, copper, manganese) are chelated, meaning they are attached to other molecules in order to remain soluble. Soluble nutrients allow your plant to efficiently absorb the nutrients it needs.
The sIO seed refill is assembled from plant-based materials. Its outer shell is made from an industrially compostable bio-plastic. The growing media inside is a woven plant-based material that is biodegradable.
SproutsIOGrow Software Services
The SproutsIOGrow mobile app enables access to our suite of software services which control the SproutsIO device and automate the growing process.
Each sIO seed refill has a proprietary Growing Profile which includes ideal light and irrigation scheduling for the lifecycle of every seed varietal we offer. Growing Profiles improve over time through analysis of sensor data from our community of growers.
We are committed to protecting user data and privacy.
