Watch this 5 minute “how to” Microgreen Superfood Starter Kit video and see the Steps for Success below to get the most out of your microgreen cultivation.
SUPERFOOD: Microgreens are baby plants that are typically harvested in the first 10 days of their life. They are recognized as a Superfood, because some have up to 40 times the nutrients of their mature counterparts and are packed with antioxidants and other nutrients that are beneficial to people of all ages. They look like little “shoots” that are about two to three inches tall with a pair of small leaves at the top.
To date, microgreens have often been used as a garnish to add flavor to everything from avocado toast to steaks. Now, microgreens are increasingly used across the health food industry as key ingredients in salads, smoothies, and much more.
