Discover the Flavor you want and the Impact you Deserve

These greens may look tiny and unassuming, but they’ve been shown to pack anywhere between 4 to 40 times the amount of nutrients than their fully-grown counter parts. These babies are harvested just after they show their first true leaves, and sold within a day or two from harvest to retain their nutritional value. better yet, at this petite harvest stage, you’ll notice these flavors are highly concentrated, so it doesn’t take a lot to make a huge impact on your taste buds.

Why Eat Microgreens vs. Mature Regular Greens

Though small they are mighty, microgreens have delicate textures, distinctive flavors, and various densely packed nutrients. In general, they contain greater amounts of nutrients and health-promoting micronutrients than their mature counterparts. Because microgreens are rich in nutrients, smaller amounts may provide similar nutritional effects compared to larger quantities of mature vegetables.

Microgreens Change the Health Game
  • Microgreens are versatile, healthy and easy to grow.

  • They contain a higher amount of vitamins, minerals and polyphenols than their fully mature counterparts and have even been associated with improved heart health and a decreased risk of chronic disease.

Zhenlei Xiao with the College of AGNR’s Department of Nutrition and Food Science remarked that…

Their research ultimately discovered that the microgreens contained four to 40 times more nutrients than their mature counterparts.

“We were really surprised,” Wang said of the findings, which were published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. “Those nutrients are very important to us. Vitamin C is considered an antioxidant, as well as Vitamin E, so they’re very important for us to consume.”

What They Say

High in Nutrients Microgreens are much more nutrient-dense foods than their fully mature counterparts. This is because they take all of the important vitamins and minerals found in the mature plant and manage to cram them into a much smaller package. The microgreen versions of these vegetables boast just as varied a nutrient profile and can help boost your vitamin and mineral intake quickly and easily. Contain Polyphenols Research suggests polyphenols have been associated with a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. A 2013 study out of Maryland measured the amount of polyphenols in five microgreens from the Brassica family of vegetables. Not only were the microgreens found to be good sources of polyphenols, but they actually contained a wider variety of polyphenols than their mature vegetable counterparts.

By way of comparison, baby greens are just small versions of fully mature plants that are picked before they’re fully-grown. Sprouts are seeds that germinate after soaking in water and grow for up to 48 hours before they’re harvested. (Because they’ve been associated with at least 30 outbreaks of food borne illnesses since 1996, mostly due to the bacteria Salmonella and E. coli, the U.S. government warns against eating raw sprouts.) Microgreens do appear to have a significant nutritional advantage. A study from the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service (ARS) found that, at equal weights, almost all of the tiny greens contained about five times more nutrients than found in the mature leaves of the same plants. The investigators measured essential vitamins and carotenoids, including vitamins C, E (tocopherols), K and beta-carotene in 25 commercially grown varieties of microgreens, including red cabbage, cilantro, garnet amaranth, and green daikon radishes.

Have you been searching for the best foods to support your hormone health? You might be familiar with the term, superfoods. We’re used to hearing about kale as a superfood for example. Superfoods 1)Microgreens: Microgreens are sort of self explanatory. They are small and mini greens. They are concentrated in micronutrients like vitamins and minerals. Hormone regulation is dependent upon specific micronutrients. So these little greens are a great go-to if you’re looking to boost your micronutrient status for hormone regulation. Microgreens tend to have a higher concentration of nutrition than their mature counterpart. Think radish microgreens as having higher nutrient content than regular radishes. Our hormones impact so much of who we are and how we show up in the world! By. Eleni Ottalagana
