Alfalfa seeds are among the more popular types to grow as sprouts or microgreens. A popular and nutritious addition to salads, sandwiches, and other dishes. They are easy to grow at home, making them a versatile and cost-effective way to add flavour and nutrition to meals.

Alfalfa sprouts can be eaten raw or cooked. Raw alfalfa sprouts contain significant amounts of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. Sprouted alfalfa seeds are a great source of dietary fibre and protein as well.

Health Benefits of Alfalfa Seeds

Alfalfa sprouts are a good source of many essential nutrients, including vitamins K and C, folate, copper, and manganese. They also contain numerous enzymes that can help the body break down food more efficiently.

Alfalfa sprouts also contain high levels of other bioactive plant compounds such as coumarins, saponins, phytosterols, phytoestrogens, flavonoids, and alkaloids. Phytoestrogens are chemically similar to estrogen.

John Hopkins Lupus Center recommends those with lupus or similar autoimmune conditions avoid alfalfa sprouts on account of the amino acid L-canavanine (read more).

  1. Jill Groves (Verified Buyer)

    Started a batch of alfalfa immediately after delivery (which was quick) in a big jam jar! The crop was ready is 5 days and totally delicious! Introduced our son to alfalfa and he loves it, especially in sandwiches.
    Another batch on the go, must get more jam jars to keep a ready supply available.
    Excellent product. Will definitely be buying again from Skysprouts.

  3. Viola Woolcott (Verified Buyer)

    These are the easiest and fasted once to grow. My son will be mad when he gets home as i have eaten the last lot on my homemade organic hummus. I cannot stop eating sprouts. I am so addicted!

  4. Rico Sergeant (Verified Buyer)

    I have always found Alfalfa Seeds difficult to grow but my experience with these are that they grow easily, I highly recommend these and Sky Sprouts

  5. Brian Steere (Verified Buyer)

    Probably the easiest small sprout to grow. Like Hilary, I include in a mix of other small sprouting seeds in ratios that suit my pallet. (Alfalfa, fenugreek, radish, broccoli, cress, rocket, etc).
    As they clog the mesh, I move from a mesh top jar to a bowl & plate as soon as they are grown enough to filter without losing the seedlings.
