I am no expert, but what I do out of simplicity sake is to use distilled water to grow my sprouts, hence there is no risk of contamination. If I had spring water, I would boil it first to kill any pathogens.

If one's kitchen is vegan and hygienic, there shouldn't be any risk of contamination. If there is adequate ventilation and some sun, I can't imagine how there could be a problem.

I watched Anne Osbourn rinse her raw chicken in her kitchen sink for her cat. That would be a big problem in a sprout kitchen. My cats and their food are not allowed in the house where I have human food. So, I can't imagine any problem under a controlled environment.

If anything, growing sprouts this way is much SAFER than growing green leafies outside, where an animal can contaminate your lettuce or veggies that are growing low to the ground.

Anyway, it's not the sprout that is the problem, right? It's the pathogen. Some people are against a compound in alfalfa sprouts and buckwheat sprouts, but what you are talking about is pathogens.
