Here at Total Microgreens, we are always asked these questions?
1. What are Microgreens?
Answer: Microgreens are plants that are harvested in the cotyledon state, typically 6-10days after germination. Microgreens contain a higher amount of vitamins, minerals and polyphenols than their fully mature counterparts.
2. What are the benefits of eating microgreens?
Answer: Several studies have demonstrated the high level of phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that microgreens contain. Microgreens are also rich in enzymes, which enable them to be more easily digested.
3. Can you eat microgreens raw?
Answer: Sprouts and microgreens are best eaten raw, as they lose their vitality, as well as precious water-soluble vitamins and enzymes, when cooked.
