We get a ton of questions on the nutritional and health benefits of the different varieties of microgreens we offer.
Microgreens may be new to us in Singapore but are used by chefs in restaurants and home cooks across the globe. As the name implies, microgreens are the tiny versions of the matured variety of vegetables and herbs. Microgreens are commonly considered a superfood by leading nutritionists, scientists, and food experts. Superfoods get their name for their abundant health benefits, with nutrient-dense elements and key vitamins found within their composition. But at the end of the day,“superfood”is just a word. What makes microgreens so super?
HEIGHTENED NUTRIENT LEVELS
Studies have shown that microgreens often pack higher levels of nutrients than their mature counterparts, with reported nutrient levels up to 40x higher in microgreens.
LOWERED RISK OF DISEASE
The concentrated levels of nutrients and antioxidants in microgreens may reduce your risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and certain cancers
The diverse flavours found within microgreens make them a perfect addition in endless meals — sprinkle them in smoothies, sandwiches, soups, and as garnishes on nearly any entree.
Some key nutrients in microgreens include antioxidants, which can improve heart health and reduce skin inflammation, and fiber, which can speed up healthy digestion and promote weight loss.
