What are Microgreens/Baby Leaf Herbs?
Micro greens and baby leaf herbs are simply the young seedlings of greens or herbs that are intensely flavoured, tender and beautiful. They are typically harvested after 7 to 14 days and though small in size, micro greens are packed full of flavour and nutrients and look great.
Micro Greens/Baby Leaf Herbs are smaller and more tender than baby lettuces, yet more robust and flavourful than sprouts!
Micro Greens/Baby Leaf Herbs are delicious and ideal for enhancing salads, main dishes, soups or as a garnish. Their full flavour and vivid colour add pizzazz to any dish! Ask any chef or food connoisseur and you'll hear the excitement, the praise, and rave reviews of Micro Greens/Baby Leaf Herbs.
Micro Greens/Baby Leaf Herbs are considered to be in the group of what are newly referred to as “functional foods”. These are food products that contain particular health promoting or disease preventing properties which are additional to their normal nutritional values.
Micro Greens/Baby Leaf Herbs have been found to contain higher levels of concentrated active compounds than those found in mature plants or seeds. These tiny baby plants provide a convenient and concentrated means for absorbing the active compounds when made into a health drink which is commonly done with wheatgrass.
