Organic Alfalfa, or Alfalfa sprouts, are among the highest protein sprouts in existence.
Alfalfa seeds, which are non-GMO, become a sprout with a delicate, slightly nutty flavor in as little as five days.
Alfalfa, or alfalfa grass, botanical name Medicago sativa, is one of the most widely used sprouts in Europe and North America.
How can I grow it?
Producing organic Alfalfa sprouts and microgreens is quick and easy, even at home.
We recommend soaking the seed for 5-6: this step is essential to allow the seed to sprout as evenly as possible.
Next, it is important to rinse and drain your organic Alfalfa seeds 2-3 times a day, being very careful that the water does not settle and stagnate.
To bring out the sweet, crisp taste of organic Alfalfa sprouts, it is best to store your tray in a cool, dark place until the day before harvest.
Your organic Alfalfa microgreens will be ready to harvest in 10 to 14 days.
How can I eat it?
Once harvested, you can add them to your salads or enjoy them as a raw food.
Organic Alfalfa sprouts, tend to wilt quickly so we recommend storing them in the refrigerator and consume them within a day, to fully enjoy their flavour.
Organic Alfalfa seeds may contain traces of soy, mustard, wheat, gluten and grasses.
Store the seeds in a cool, ventilated place, with temperature between 8° and 20° C, away from weather, changes in humidity and direct sunlight.
