Sprouting of Alfalfa Seeds

Alfalfa seeds are ranked among the most sprouted seeds in the world. This process is so easy that it can even be performed at home. You can sprout alfalfa seeds by following 5 simple steps:

  1. Put the seeds in the jar of water for the night.
    Cover with room temperature water and let them rest.
  2. Empty the jar and leave the seeds in it.
    Some air should be in contact with the moisturized seeds. Turn the jar around to spread the seeds to the sides. Afterward, leave the jar lying horizontally. Keep the temperature at about 80 degrees. A cooler atmosphere will slow down the growth of the seeds. Light doesn’t matter a lot at this period.
  3. Rinse the seeds 2 times a day minimum to avoid a bad smell.
    Pour some cool water in, shake the jar, and empty it through a cheesecloth fastened to the top. Then repeat it again to clean the seeds of bad microorganisms. At this stage, you should be able to already observe some of them sprouting.
  4. Leave them in the sun rays.
    After about 5-6 days, the sprouts are ready and you should expose them to some sunlight for a quarter of an hour or so to catalyze fermentation.

Enjoy your home-made sprouts!

  1. I have ordered this before–great product! Remember when sprouting…less is more. This will last us a long time. This is great for emergency food storage. Humans as well as chickens love sprouts.

  3. It was a great experience I would do it again. One thing I like about ordering is that I get it in less time never had a problem and if so the company always let me know if it’s not going to come on that day and also tells me that they may not have it and I get reimbursed my money. So that’s something I really appreciate.

Used to grow Alfalfa seeds years ago so I know how to grow them there was very little instructions included basically in a quart of water you put a tablespoon of the seeds and then start the process which is part of the instructions just had a great tuna sandwich with my Sprouts takes about 7 to 10 days I didn’t expose to indirect sunlight until about 4 or 5 days then you’ll get the green.

  8. These seeds are a “find” They seem to produce more sprouts than my last in bulk order that I got several years ago from whom I don’t remember. I shopped around, every place and site I could think of. Definitely the best deal around.
