Microgreens backed to pack a nutritious punch

Microgreens provide a nutritional punch, with up to 40 times more vital vitamins and minerals than their mature counterparts.

A study in the USA, found seedlings of greens including red cabbage, coriander, and radish harvested less than 14 days after germination contain up to 40 times higher levels of vital nutrients including vitamin C, K, E, and beta-carotene than their mature counterparts.

For example, red cabbage microgreens had 40 times more vitamin E and six times more vitamin C than mature red cabbage, whilst cilantro microgreens had three times more beta-carotene mature coriander.

All of these nutrients are extremely important for skin, eyes, and fighting cancer and have all sorts of benefits associated with them.
