The Amazing Microgreen

Microgreens, how can a little plant have so much flavor and nutrition? Microgreens have been in the market place since at the 90’s when a San Francisco chef began growing them for his restaurant. We know what amazing
concentrated flavor they have in each bite. They are also very versatile for use with wraps, burgers, eggs, tacos,
salads and even Bloody Mary’s. The following is a list of the nutritional benefits:

  • More anti-oxidants (protect against free radicals) than mature plants
  • Rich in nitric oxide needed for vasodilation to keep a normal blood pressure
  • Contain many nutrients in concentrated forms like Vitamin C, potassium, Vitamin A and B vitamins
  • Microgreens have probiotics necessary for gut health
  • As with all plants, microgreens contain fiber needed for healthy digestion and elimination
  • Contain plant pigments like carotenoids which help with eye health, cardiovascular health and cancer prevention
  • Some microgreens such as broccoli contain high levels of sulforaphane know for its cancer preventing properties

Although these plants are tiny, they pack a punch with nutrients and flavor.
