A Microgreen is the second stage in the four stage growth cycle of a vegetable which includes:

1. Sprout

2. Micro

3. Baby

4. Mature

 

The compelling characteristics of a Microgreen include:

  • Flavor: Very distinct and intense flavor to enhance a meal especially Soups, Salads, Sandwiches, Meat, Fish, Pasta, and much more. 
  • Garnish:  Colorful, enhances and accents the presentation of fine food.
  • Nutrition: Known by experts as a “Super Food” where  1 oz of Red Cabbage at the Microgreen stage contains the same Nutrition as 40 oz of Mature Cabbage. Thus the cost per unit of nutrition in Micro form is not only a fraction of the cost in the mature form, eating 1 oz of Microgreens is somewhat more practical than 40 oz of mature Cabbage.

It’s not just about vitamin absorption, it’s about all the nutrients you may take in a supplement.

 


The following is a chart that compares the absorption rates of different delivery systems:
