Microgreens and nutrition.

Microgreens and nutrition.

Microgreens are not  only beneficial if consumed raw but also integrated in some other cooked foods such as recently shown for adding microgreens to bread (https://bit.ly/2BZgG5i).

Red cabbage microgreens contain 40 times more vitamin E,  60 times more vitamin K and 6 times more vitamin C than the same weight of  their fully grown counterpart.

Just one microgreen of broccoli contains the same amount of the powerful antioxidant sulforaphane as 130 g of fresh broccoli or 200 g of stir fried broccoli !

Microgreens are rich in minerals too:

  • 100 grams of amaranth microgreens contain more calcium than 1 liter of Evian water.
  • 100 grams of sunflower microgreens provide as much magnesium as 15 liters of Evian water.
Microgreens bring you SO MUCH MORE than pricey mineral water !!

We will publish more on this topic soon. Stay tuned.
