Caption: Alfalfa seeds. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Alfafa (Medicago sativa) seeds. Alfalfa, also known as lucerne, is cultivated as an important forage crop (eaten by grazing livestock). It is thought that consuming heat-treated alfalfa seeds may reduce cholesterol, though there are health risks associated with high doses. It can also be used as a galactagogue, a substance that induces lactation. The seeds are usually sprouted and eaten raw. Magnification x10 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
