What Are Microgreens?
They are basically baby plants that are grown densely in soil for approximately 1-3 weeks until they have developed their cotyledon "seed" leaves. They are different from sprouts which are soaked and allowed to germinate, grow only for a few days and are not allowed to develop any green leaf. Sprouts are typically eaten seed, root and all, whereas microgreens are harvested by cutting the stem and leaves off above the soil, leaving the roots/seed behind.
Why Grow Microgreens?
When you eat microgreens you are providing your body with a power-packed dose of nutrients more concentrated then those found in mature plants. Microgreens are considered to be functional food which promote good health and help to prevent disease, as they are high in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, carotenoids and fibre.
On top of all this goodness you get the pleasure of growing and nurturing the food that will in turn nourish you own body. And you can grow microgreens all year round.
