These organically grown alfalfa seed are the ideal beginners seed for sprouting. Alfalfa seeds quickly create a dense mass of little sprouts in around 6-8 days. They have a mild, nutty flavour packed full of nutrients such as vitamins A, C, B2, D and Niacin(B3). Alfalfa sprouts are also a complete protein containing all 8 amino-acids.
They can be added to soups, however this will effect their level of Vitamin C and other vitamins present, which would be higher when eaten raw. If cooked, the sprouts also reduce in size massively and lose their texture. For these reasons we recommend that they be enjoyed raw where possible. They make a particularly good ingredient for low-fat salads and their taste compliments dips such as hummous(hummus).
