    Hi Monicamkim,

    I buy soybeans from Lauras Soybeans. I buy both the regular, larger soybeans to make tofu and soymilk, and the smaller soybeans for sprouting and to make natto. I highly recommend them.

    Lauras soybeans are not organic … but they are non-GMO. There can be pluses and minuses to “organic” produce. What is important to me is that the soybeans NOT be GMO.

    You should rinse to re-hydrate the soybeans you are spouting a minimum of every day, preferable 2 or 3 times a day. Doing this will eliminate the opportunity for fungus (rot) to get hold of your sprouts.

    Good luck!

    I used same brand but it did not turn out. In stead it became rotten. Where can I get good organic seed for soybean sprout?
