Untreated organic alfalfa-lucerne from italy in raw food quality.
Alfalfa is a natural source of a number of essential nutrients that feed our body, mind, and soul. The Arabs discovered the positive effects of alfalfa and gave it the name "father of all nutrients".
Alongside vital enzymes, alfalfa contains chlorophyll and vitamins A, E, K, B6, and D. Further, alfalfa is a source of a variety of minerals and trace elements, for example magnesium and iron, in a form that is readily available for the body.
Alfalfa sprouts can be harvested on the seventh day. The average yield from 3 tablespoons of seeds is approximately 2 cups of sprouts.
The germination process and consequent chlorophyll production lead to an increase in nutrients. The onset of photosynthesis increases the energy from the sun contained in the sprouts. The seeds should therefore be given enough room so that sufficient light can reach the protruding sprouts.
Alfalfa sprouts can be added to salads, sandwiches, and wraps, and used as a garnish for soups.
