What are Microgreens ?
Microgreens are a tiny form of edible greens produced from the seeds of vegetable, herbs or other plants. They are not the same as sprouts. There are important differences especially in the way they are produced. For example, sprouts are grown in water, in very low light conditions and are consumed as a tangled mass of roots, stems and underdeveloped leaf buds. Microgreens are grown in soil to a stage of development in between a sprout and a baby green. Microgreens have much stronger, more developed flavors than sprouts. They contain their dense nutritional value but are topped off with an extra boost of life sustaining chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is defined as “nature’s greatest healer” since it contains more healing properties than any other element.
