Abstract: The chemical composition, mineral constituents, amino acid profile, fatty acid composition of radish and alfalfa [lucerne] seeds were studied to evaluate their nutrition value in response to germination time. Radish and alfalfa seeds were germinated for 1, 3 and 5 days in the dark at 25 deg C. Seed germination caused the decrease in dry matter content. The moisture content of raw radish seeds was 6.45%, alfalfa seeds 8.20%, while in five days the germinated radish seeds had 85.34% and in alfalfa sprouts 90.36%. During germination, the crude protein content showed a tendency to increase, while crude fats, to decrease. After germination, the content of eight amino acids decreased in radish sprouts, as well as in alfalfa sprouts. After germination of radish seeds, threonine, serine, glutamic acid, glycine, alanine, leucine, lysine and arginine contents decreased while in alfalfa tyrosine, threonine, serine, glutamic acid, glycine, leucine, lysine and arginine decreased. The fatty acid composition during seed germination changed slightly. The biggest decreasing tendency during 5 germination days of alfalfa seeds was observed in the case of linolenic fatty acid (C 18:3) by 5.15%, and oleic (C 18:1) by 0.51%. In radish seeds, the amount of linolenic fatty acid (C 18:3) increased by 1.56%, and of linoleic acids (C 18:2) by 1.67%. Total carotenoids and beta -carotene content in radish sprouts after 3 days of germination was very high (2.31 and 0.61 mg 100 g-1, respectively) and several times higher than in alfalfa sprouts
