What are microgreens?
Microgreens are a micro version of the full grown vegetables you eat on a daily basis like broccoli, radish, and peas. They are only 8-12 days old but contain more vitamins and minerals than their adult versions.
Think of all of the nutrients in a head of Broccoli, compressed down into a small serving of greens. You get the same vitamins and nutrients but your digestive system doesn't need to process as much food as it would with a serving of full grown vegetables.
The same goes for our other varieties of microgreens like Peas, Radish, and Arugula. They contain high levels of antioxidants, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients.
Microgreens contain anywhere from 4 to 40 times as many vitamins and nutrients as mature or full-grown vegetables, and they contain many elements that are known to help fight inflammation and prevent disease.
They are also a great way for individuals who are not fond of vegetables to get their daily intake because a 1 oz. serving of certain microgreens can be equivalent to a 1 lb. serving of full grown vegetables.
