What are Microgreens?
Microgreens are the tender immature seedlings of edible vegetables and herbs. They have two developed embryonic leaves called cotyledon leaves. When the cotyledon leaves have fully developed, and the first true leaves have emerged these seedlings become Microgreens and are harvested. Microgreens are small, come in a variety of strong flavors, bright colors, and crunchy tastes, and are packed with nutrients! Microgreens contain between 4 and 40 times more nutrients by weight than their fully grown counterparts. In addition, broccoli, kale and red cabbage Microgreens have been discovered to have remarkably high concentrations of sulforaphane! – a compound shown to have anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory effects.
