Microgreen Nutrient Chart

Q: What are Microgreens?

Microgreens are a SUPERFOOD. Microgreens are young vegetable greens harvested at an early stage, bursting with flavor and dense in nutrients. These tiny greens pack a powerful punch, offering concentrated doses of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Q: How do I cook/use microgreens?

Microgreens are best enjoyed raw and can be used as a vibrant garnish to salads, soups, sandwiches, and wraps, or added as a final touch to cooked dishes for a burst of freshness and added nutritional value.

Q: How long do your microgreens stay fresh?

We have enjoyed our microgreens up to two weeks after harvest, we recommend consuming them within 5-7 days after harvest.

Q: What are the health benefits associated with microgreens?

Microgreens offer a wide range of health benefits due to their concentrated nutrient content. They are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that support immune function, promote healthy digestion, and provide essential nutrients for overall well-being. Consuming microgreens regularly may help improve nutrient intake, support healthy aging, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

Q: Can microgreens assist as an anti-inflammatory?

Yes, microgreens can assist as an anti-inflammatory due to their content of bioactive compounds such as anthocyanins and glucosinolates. Anthocyanins, present in microgreens like red cabbage, exhibit antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Glucosinolates, found in various microgreens, including Brassicaceae family, have been associated with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capacities.

While more research is needed to fully understand the specific effects of microgreens on inflammation, their bioactive components suggest potential anti-inflammatory benefits.
