Health Benefits of Microgreens
Since microgreens made an advent in food and nutrition industry, they have become a popular choice of health experts, nutritionists, and general household. Confined only to specialty farmer markets earlier, these microgreens are widely available in any supermarket now.
Their growing popularity is primarily due to their ability to impart a lot of flavor while added even in small quantity, as well as these being a reservoir of nutrients than their older counterparts like stem, shoot, fruits and flowers of a plant.
Add a small quantity of these in a delicate vegetable salad to impart ounces of flavor or give a final touch to any delicacy by garnishing it with just one or two microgreen. Along with imparting the strong flavours, microgreens are also widely acclaimed for their health benefits because each microgreen is a rich source of antioxidants, and proteins.
What are Microgreens?
Microgreen is the commonly used term for any herb or vegetable that has edible leaves and is usually harvested at cotyledon stage. The stage is first stage of development of plant when true leaves arise in a plant. It is the next stage after germination when the little plant develops a full-fledged roots and leaves.
Nutrition and Health Benefits
To reap the health benefits of microgreens, eat them immediately after harvest. Microgreens, like most other superfoods that are consumed fresh, begin to lose their nutritional value rapidly after harvest.
We ship our greens on their grow pad.
As the Micro-Greens are shipped living but not in soil these greens can be taken into the kitchen and cut when they are required by the chef. Therefore they are as fresh as possible and the amount of wasted greens are reduced.
Our Microgreens are shipped on their grow mat. They continue living until you cut them for use.
Soil can contain bacteria and pathogens that if not washed off your greens can cause harm.
