WHAT ARE MICROGREENS
Microgreens are young seedlings of edible vegetables and herbs harvested less than 14 days after germination. These tiny plants are grown to about 1 to 3 inches before harvesting. Microgreens contain higher nutrient levels than more mature vegetable greens. Along with the concentrated nutrient content that these baby plants possess, they have intense aromatic flavor and a full firm texture. One study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that the nutrient levels of these tiny plants was up to 40x more than their adult counterparts in such vital vitamins as Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Lutein and Beta-carotene.
Microgreens can be incorporated into a healthy and balanced diet in a multitude of ways. They make delicious toppings for wraps, sandwiches, or salads. They may also be added to smoothies or juiced. Many have found that adding them to hot dishes adds a touch of both color and flavor that enhances meals in new and profound ways. These tiny plants also make great snacks for children, eaten raw or added to a meal, they help provide a burst of nutrients and antioxidants that may provide a boost to a child’s health.
Microgreens aren’t just great for people; they are also great for pets. Microgreens help with the intake of vital nutrients and support the elimination of indigestible matter. They can bolster the immune system, regulate hormones, promote heart health and help with muscle and nerve function.
All in all, Microgreens are easy to use, delicious and healthy. The extensive flavor profile of microgreens is something that will make any cook happy.
