MicroGreens are not Sprouts

MicroGreens are tasty micro plants. We grows ours from GMO and/or organic seed stock. They are grown until the first true leaves develop.
Sprouts are grown in just water and are composed of the roots, stem, and underdeveloped leaves, usually taking a few days to produce.  Sprouts are germinated seeds and grown in water which can be subject to waterborne pathogens. Microgreens are something much different they are not grown in water but in fresh air.
