Understanding Microgreens: A Closer Look
Microgreens aren't just tiny plants; they're the early stages of greens like kale, arugula, or radishes, harvested when they're just babies. But don't let their size fool you; these little greens pack a serious nutritional punch.
Not Your Average Greens
Microgreens are more than just mini versions of their mature counterparts. They're a different experience altogether. At Revity Farms, we nurture these greens until they reach their peak nutrient density, which is often higher than the levels found in fully grown vegetables.
A Burst of Nutrients
Think of microgreens as the superheroes of the vegetable world. They come loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Consuming microgreens means you're giving your body a concentrated dose of essential nutrients. They're particularly rich in vitamins like A, C, and K, along with minerals like iron and magnesium.
Taste the Difference
Every microgreen variety offers a unique flavor. Some, like radish microgreens, bring a spicy zing, perfect for pepping up sandwiches or salads. Others, like pea shoots, offer a gentle, sweet taste that complements more robust flavors.
