Less Food, More Nutrients




Microgreens, those mini-versions of common vegetables such as spinach, lettuce, and red cabbage, are actually better for you than their full-grown counterparts. According to a report published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry, microgreens have noticeably higher concentrations of vitamins and carotenoids. Turns out, each microgreen has a different nutritional superpower, for example, red cabbage has the most vitamin C, but green daikon radish microgreens have the most vitamin E. Eating less, and getting more vitamins and nutrients, what’s not to love?
