What are microgreens?

Microgreen Timeline--47.png

Microgreens are greens that have been harvested in the primary stage of plant growth, when the first set of true leaves have appeared.

  • Microgreens are older than sprouts and younger than baby greens.

  • They add a burst of flavour and texture to sandwiches, wraps, smoothies, soups, pizza, burgers., as well as beauty to finished plates.

  • Studies have shown that microgreens can contain up to 40x more vital nutrients than their mature counterparts.

  • Microgreens are safer than sprouts.  

    • Unlike microgreens that are grown in airy, lighted conditions, sprouts are grown in dark moist conditions where bacteria can develop.
