Organic Microgreens from OrganicSiri®
Microgreens have different flavours and tastes that vary from sweet, sour, spicy and bitter depending upon the variety. Microgreens shouldn’t be confused with sprouts because microgreens have a set of true leaves, a stem, and roots while sprouts are just a germinated seeds that have a shoot coming out of them. Microgreens are completely organic as they are grown without any Pesticides. Roots of microgreens are also edible along with their leaves and stems. Not every plant can be grown as microgreens because micro plants of every vegetable do not contain such nutritional benefits. Only certain vegetables, cereals and pulses benefit us when grown as microgreens.
Microgreens are loaded with a lot of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, carotenoids and phytochemicals that have numerous health benefits when consumed. These are rich in polyphenols, and antioxidants linked to a lower risk of heart disease, Antioxidants may help reduce the type of stress that can prevent sugar from properly entering cells.
