About Microgreens

 

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: The distinct and intense flavor of Microgreens enhances any meal- try them on soups, salads, sandwiches, meat, fish, pasta, and anything else you regularly eat!
  • Garnish:  The diverse colors of Microgreens enhances and accents the presentation of fine food.
  • Nutrition: Microgreens are known by experts as a “Super Food” due to their high nutritional concentration. For example, 1 oz of Red Cabbage Microgreens contains the same nutritional value as 40 oz of Mature Cabbage, making Microgreens much more efficient and cost effective at providing nutrition.
