Alfalfa sprouts are full of vitamins and minerals, with concentrated amounts of calcium, vitamin K and vitamin C. They are also a great source of phytoestrogens, beneficial plant compounds that can help reduce heart disease, cancer and osteoporosis. Research shows these compounds help reduce symptoms of menopause.
Alfalfa sprouts also contain saponins, compounds that help lower ‘bad’ cholesterol whilst increasing ‘good’ cholesterol.
Alfalfa sprouts complement light meals such as salads at any time of the year. The slightly bitter, mildly nutty taste adds a distinctive flavour to salads, soups, dips and many other dishes.
