Alfalfa is the most popular sprout with a delicious nutty flavour. It is highly nutritious and rich in vitamins B1, B2, C, E, K, D and especially vitamin A; minerals such as phosphorus, calcium (five times more than milk), magnesium, iron, potassium, sulphur, zinc; and a good quantity of protein (35%) and fibre. Alfalfa sprouts are used to support convalescence, and to prevent anaemia and osteoporosis. Expose the sprouts to full sunlight on the 5th day to make them more nutritious. Try to avoid sprouting alfalfa during very hot weather; a germination temperature between 16 - 25°C works best.
Note that this alfalfa is not organically certified but it is food grade seed.
