Microgreens work because they are harvested without roots and seed coats. This makes them less likely to be exposed to contamination in the sprout production.
Microgreens are an incredible source of beneficial plant compounds like antioxidants.
Each tiny stem is said to be the equivalent in nutritional value of four to six heads of, for example, broccoli. So, you can imagine the incredible health benefits you are receiving into your system.
Microgreens have an amazing content of nutrients such as zinc, iron, magnesium, rich in potassium and copper (2,3). They are a great source of beneficial plant compounds like antioxidants, phytochemicals, and vitamins. They contain all these essential and powerful nutrients just 10-14 days after germination. So, this means it is basically a plant the size of a four-leaf clover that has more nutrients, vitamins, and minerals than their fully grown counterparts.
Scientific testing has discovered that microgreens are also actually macrobiotically safer than sprouts because they are harvested just after the cotyledon leaves have developed.
Microgreens also add colour to your plate. Tests have shown that food is often more likely to be consumed not only based on smell, and taste, but sight.
Microgreens add an extremely attractive addition to your meal whilst having incredible benefits to your wellbeing. That, and they are absolutely packed with flavour.
