Yes, alfalfa sprouts have better nutritional value than lettuce.
Alfalfa sprouts contain antioxidants and vitamins A, B complex, C, E, and K. They also have a higher protein content.
Romaine lettuce, on the other hand, contains antioxidants and vitamins A and C but is low on protein.
Alfalfa is a vegetable thought to be very nutritious with a number of various health benefits. For one, it is rich in chlorophyll, vitamins, and micronutrients that can absorb cholesterol and prevent the formation of artery plaques. It is high in vitamins A, B1, B6, C, E, and K, as well as protein, calcium, and potassium.
Lettuce is also rich in nutrients and is a low-calorie food. It also supplies many of the same vitamins that alfalfa does. However, you have to be more careful in how you consume lettuce. Eating a salad with a fatty and oily dressing, or putting lettuce on a burger, will undo all the great nutritional progress you’re making by eating lettuce in the first place. This is probably more of an issue in lettuce consumption than with alfalfa sprouts.
Both are very healthy foods. Per 100 g (3.5 oz) Sprouts are slightly higher in calories (23 to 16). Lettuce has a much higher concetration of vitamin A and vitamin K though Sprouts have more protein. A more in depth comparison can be found here
