A US study compared the nutritious content of full-sized leafy vegetables and herbs with that of 25 distinct microgreens.
The amounts of nutrients in various microgreens vary. However, they often had more vitamin C, vitamin E, and carotenoids per gramme than mature crops (plant chemicals, some of which are required to generate vitamin A and others of which support eye health).
Could our diet be quickly improved by consuming these nutritionally “super charged” leaves?
In other words, microgreens often contain more concentrated supplies of vitamins and minerals and are therefore obviously more nutrient dense. It’s a constant balancing act to acquire the most nutrients at the best price you can afford when choosing meals for your family.
Those are seldom simple decisions. But I guarantee that by the time you’re done reading this piece, you’ll know enough to compare microgreens to veggies.
