So, what are micro greens?
They are not the same thing as sprouts, even though a lot of people refer to them as sprouts. The main difference is that micro greens are grown on a medium – like soil – whereas sprouts are grown in water. Other differences are that they look different – sprouts and micro greens are at different parts of the growing cycle. But most importantly, they taste different! Where sprouts are mild and mostly crunchy micro greens are packed with great flavor.
And they are good for you!
More and more studies are showing that micro greens are more concentrated in nutritional value than their mature counterparts. This in part because of where they are in the grow cycle but also because micro greens tend to be grown local so they are not transported and stored for weeks, they are freshly harvested for you to enjoy.
