Microgreens are currently one of the trendiest food items in the diet and nutrition world – and with good reason. A few days older than sprouts, they are used to beautify a plate, blended in smoothies, mixed into salads, or added to sandwiches or stir-fries.
Many say that Microgreens are the new superfoods of this decade. As shown in a 2012 USDA study and several studies since, Microgreens and micro herbs are extremely nutritious, in many cases up to 40 times more nutritious than their full-grown versions. Most varieties tend to be rich in potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium and copper, and a mix of vitamins.
A lot of vegetables contain beneficial polyphenols, which are naturally occurring chemicals that contain amazing antioxidant properties. Helping to fight the build-up of free radicals in the body, polyphenols have also been known to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and heart disease.
In fact, Microgreens are considered by many to be the superhero of superfoods.
