Throughout the process users can roll SproutyPod 360 degrees while making the most of its angled edges. This increases airflow and prevents seeds from sticking together and holding onto moisture. It also helps to rinse the sprouts before serving. Want to discover more food design innovations? Check out SquarEat\u2019s food cube concept is innovative (and dystopian).
