Microgreens contain up to 40 times as much nutrients as the mature varieties!!
We started growing microgreens because we wanted to provide quality nutrients to our kids all year round
Because we grow our microgreens indoors it had the added benefit that we could provide our kids with pesticide and herbicide-free veg.
As a family, we have reduced our intake of synthetic vitamins as we eat microgreens on a daily basis to compliment every meal with a good serving of essential vitamins and minerals.
We absolutely love the versatility of these greens, they add great flavour to the meals we serve, they require no cooking, and because you only need a small amount, it is easy to add them to every meal.
Complimenting our juices with a serving of our microgreens is the perfect way to start, boost and end your day.
What are microgreens
Microgreens are young seedlings of edible vegetables and herbs ready for harvesting in less than 14-21 days after germination.
Don't confuse microgreens with sprouts. Sprouts are seeds that have just been soaked in water long enough to germinate.
Microgreens are considered a functional food, a food that promotes health beyond basic nutrition.
Microgreens contain high levels of all the essential nutrients:
Microgreens contain up to 40-times more nutrients than their mature plants.
Because they are so nutrient-dense a little goes a long way. You do not need platefuls of greens to get your 5-a-day, only a few small servings are all you need.
Taste and versatility
Microgreens are absolutely packed with flavour!
They range in flavour from sweet to nutty, sharp tangy, spicy and bitter, perfect to compliment any meal.
Microgreens do not have to be cooked to be enjoyed, snack on them as-is or add to any meal, comfort food or your favourite smoothie.
Their versatility makes it easy to blend them in with your kid's favourite meals.
