The diversity of microgreens

The benefits of microgreens are known and loved all over the world.

As is well known, microgreens are rich in vitamins, minerals, and fibre; thus the product of the century came to be confidently embraced by athletes and increasingly recommended by nutritional doctors.

Microgreens – how can we consume them?

Their consumption can be done in various forms, starting from their use for the decoration of plates and dishes offering a spectacular appearance to their use as the food itself.

When it comes to the consumption of microgreens at home and not in the restaurant, we must know that they can be consumed in almost any form, regardless of whether we choose to add them to salads, sandwiches, or shakes.

Microgreens are suitable for…

Microgreens can exceptionally define the menu of people who want to become or are already vegan or vegetarian. We refer to this group of people because, through their diet, they manage to assimilate the nutrients useful to the human body from the food they eat rather hard. Incorporating micro-plants into their daily menus showed that, gradually, they achieved perfect nutritional values, without vitamin or mineral deficiencies. Now maybe we can ask if negative effects can occur due to too much consumption of microgreens… but the answer is definitely NO.

A wide range of microgreens varieties

The varied assortments can be eaten like any other vegetable or fruit, always adding value, and are a great choice for people trying to get results using greens in various diets.

How can we prepare the microgreens?

The diversity of the range of microgreens also brings with it diversity in terms of their preparation methods. In order for them to retain their benefits in relation to 100%, we do not have to apply thermal preparation/preparation actions on them.

  • Microgreens salads are a must-have both in the kitchens of restaurants and those of physical customers. Through research done by nutritionists, it was concluded that a mixture of 100 grams of sunflower and basil provides 2.2 g of protein, 2.2 g of fibre, 15.9 mg of iron, 88 mg of calcium and 298 mg of potassium, all for just 28 calories. There are other nutrients and vitamins in microgreens, such as magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, folic acid, and vitamins C and A.
  • Sandwiches are among the children’s favorites. With their help, microgreens were also easily introduced into their diet because they can brilliantly replace salad leaves, offering an exceptional taste and at the same time a more appetizing appearance.
  • Snacks such as cured meats, cheeses, or spreads can be seasoned and enhanced with micro-plants.
  • Desserts can be beautified and get extra flavour by adding certain strands of microgreens. A very good example is peas, which can be added to any dish due to their neutral taste. In addition to these, edible flowers can also be added, which also have a special taste.
  • Juices. The most appreciated variety in this regard is wheatgrass. This juice can be obtained by cold pressing or by squeezing with specialized machines and subsequent mixing.
