ABOUT FARM FRESH CHOICE
WHAT ARE MICROGREENS
Microgreens are young and tender edible leaves grown from seeds of popular vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, beets, and kale planted in soil and harvested 8 to 14 days after seed germination.
They are packed with nutrients and have a concentrated flavor, making them a popular ingredient in salads, sandwiches, and smoothies.
Microgreens can also be used as a garnish for various dishes, adding a pop of color and flavor to the plate. They can be sautéed or stir-fried as a quick and healthy side dish or used as a topping for pizza or pasta.
In addition to their culinary uses, microgreens are also popular among health enthusiasts who appreciate their nutritional value. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants and are believed to have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties.
MICROGREENS BACKED BY RESEARCH
According to the researchers, the nutrient levels in the leaves of almost all microgreens were four to six times higher than those in the fully grown leaves of the corresponding plant, with some variations between different types. Among the microgreens, red cabbage had the highest concentration of vitamin C, while green daikon radish microgreens contained the most vitamin E.
