Microgreens are tiny greens that are older than a sprout and younger than a full-grown plant. Microgreens are harvested after the first true leaves have developed.
They are the smallest of the salad greens and herbs, smaller than the “baby greens,” and can be grown from almost any plant variety that would produce a mature edible plant, such as arugula, spinach, radish or basil.
It’s the nutrition story is the one that sets Microgreens apart. 1 OUNCE of Microgreen Broccoli contains the equivalent nutrition to 1 and 1/2 POUNDS (24 ounces) of mature Broccoli florets. That’s a 24-to-1 ratio.
Talk about a Super-Food !! Not the Calories or the fiber, but the vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals and when eaten fresh … the enzymes.
