Alfalfa is one of the first sprouts we began to grow and still one of our most popular sprouts today. Full of vitamins and minerals, with concentrated amounts of calcium, vitamin K and vitamin C. Also a great source of phytoestrogens, beneficial plant compounds that help reduce heart disease, cancer and osteoporosis. Research shows these compounds help reduce symptoms of menopause. Also contain saponins, compounds that help lower ‘bad’ cholesterol whilst increasing ‘good’ cholesterol. We chuck this in salads, on rice cakes – it has a mild flavour and goes with anything.
10g of seed will produce approximately 100g of sprouts in 4 – 5 days.
