Open Pollinated non GMO, Untreated & Tested free of Pathogens eg Salmonella, e-coli etc. Organic Alfalfa Seeds? not available in Australia - As far as we know, and we’ve been selling alfalfa seeds for over 10 years, organic alfalfa seed is not available in Australia, there are two reasons for this. 1. Alfalfa is grown for more than one year and it is extremely difficult to keep the weeds at bay, there is some spraying periodically during the growing stage (not seeding stage) and there does not seem to be the quantity market in Australia for anybody to go to the extra effort to grow them organically. 2. The second is that it is illegal to import Alfalfa into Australia. Also to note we supply 25 KG bags of alfalfa to some other retailers, we have noticed that some companies resell this as an organic product, we can’t comment on some of their other organic seed claims, but if there selling “organic” alfalfa seeds in their range you might wonder. Our organic seed policy. - When we can find good quality reasonably priced organic seeds we will supply them as everything should be organic and it will be one day, at the moment it is not. We also believe that using our sprouting techniques where you are growing them for six and seven days and each day you are soaking them in bio activated organic nutrients, then the sprout that you’re eating is probably a lot closer to being organic than what you are purchasing at the farmers market in organic labelled vegetable, not to mention containing just about every known trace element on the planet in a bioavailable form. The secret to growing SUPER Charged Alfalfa sprouts is to soak in bio-activated organic nutrients, initially overnight e.g. for 8 hours and then each day for 10-30mins, then rinse/drain for another three or four days, and in the last few days remove any husk or un-sprouted material, then secure the cover and place in the fridge where it will continue to grow for at least a week. NB- small sprouts such as Alfalfa or Broccoli can form a tight mesh, which can lead to overheating and also makes it harder to get rid of un-sprouted material such as husk (the outer covering of the seed which is shed when the seed sprouts), so we suggest you mix these with a larger sprout, the best one we have found for this is red arrow Radish, this creates more air and space between the sprouts diminishing the chances of these problems occurring. See our Loose Sprouting kits -> Sprouting Kit Loose 2x1.5L and Sprouting Kit Loose 1x4L + 2x1.5L The advantages of our sprouting colanders: 1- The colanders come with their own drip bowl. 2- They have different drainage settings i.e. they can be set flat e.g. use for the 1st few days and then at an angle for even better drainage and aeration as the sprout mass becomes larger. 3- They also come with a flat perforated optional lid/cover - ensures they do not dry out but still allowing good aeration - allows for excellent storage conditions in your fridge, you can even stack several on top of each other. I use them with the lid on flat in a cool dark place for the 1st few days, I then place them in the light, again with the lid on but at an angle, ie as the sprouts become denser they need more air. For the last few days I either divide them into 2 separate colanders, there is a version available with large slots in the base that can be used at this stage to aid in husk removal, personally I combine several small colanders into one large colander for the final greening and de-husking process and then store the large colander in the fridge with the cover in place. This gives you an excellent cycling system whereby you immediately restart one of the smaller colanders. 4- Another difference with our sprouting technique is that we supply bio-activated organic nutrients which you soak the seeds and sprouts in once a day, what this means is that the nutritional content is many times greater than if you just rinse them each day in water, basically what is happening here is that the organic nutrients contain 99% of the major and micro trace elements (Azomite, Dolomite, Kelp, Humate-decomposed prehistoric plants etc), these are then fermented to make them more easily absorbed by the sprouts, which then present these minerals and trace elements in a bio-available form to you, truly giving you a super food. This also means that they will last longer in the fridge not to mention they taste better. My favourite combinations are - Broccoli, Radish (Red Arrow), Alfalfa, the other mix that I do is Fenugreek and Radish (Red Arrow), e.g. preferred mix is 75ml Broccoli, 75ml Alfalfa, 75ml Red Arrow Radish. This gives you 1 full 4ltr colander of yummy tangy sprouts. - Fenugreek and Radish (Red Arrow) - 4ltr colander. - And 1.5L colander of red Lentils sprouts.

NOTE: Some people have said that Alfalfa sprouts are bad for you & I believe this is where the bad PR originated from. Alfalfa and other legumes contain a non-protein amino acid called Canavanine, large quantities of which can aggravate lupus, and other auto immune disorders (If taken in severe overdose quantities (i.e. 1,000 mg per day for 12 months), L-Canavanine can cause thinning of the blood. Furthermore, it can exacerbate the symptoms of Lupus, a disease where the body’s own immune system starts to attack various organs. Individuals with kidney conditions must consult their physician before taking this substance.) This has been discovered because this particular compound has been synthesised and used to treat various conditions such as pancreatic cancer etc, so what they are saying is that a synthesised component of Alfalfa when taken in extreme quantities may aggravate certain conditions. The substance in question, Canavanine, is concentrated in its highest amount in the seed and decreases in concentration throughout the sprouting process, being water-soluble, the soaking process that we use in our sprouting technique further dilutes this substance, to an even greater extent than if it was rinsed only. Bottom line is this research has no relevance to eating alfalfa sprouts.
