Trigonella foenum graecum
The Fenugreek belongs to the family of Legumes. The seed is medium sized,
mustard-coloured, rectangular-shaped with stripes. Fenugreek sprouts need 6/7
days to grow.
Fenugreek sprouts disinfect and depurate blood, kidneys and liver. They stimulate
the appetite and are recommended against anaemia and physical weariness. They
have a high content of proteins and carbohydrates, vitamins A, D, E and group B,
minerals such as Phosphorus, Potassium, iron, Calcium, Magnesium, Sulphur.
Fenugreek sprouts are to be eaten raw. Their taste is slightly sharp and they are
therefore used to spice up salads, soups and side dishes.
