By the way, what are Microgreens? !!!!!
Well on reading the term Micro greens, brows are naturally raised. Our Forefathers have never introduced us to the food system called Micro Greens. It was first introduced in 1980s in San Francisco by some Chefs to enhance the attractiveness and taste of the food. The “Rainbow Mix” which was then used consisted of Arugula, Basil, Beets, Kale and Cilantro. However, later when the Scientists across the world started to publish their studies on the nutritional value of the Micro Greens, it started its travel beyond San Francisco and today to your doorsteps through us.
Micro Greens are harvested just after the cotyledon leaves (first pair of leaves after germination) have developed. They are young vegetable greens that are approximately 1-3 inches tall. They fall between sprouts and baby vegetable greens and only their stems and leaves are considered edible. They are wealthy in potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium and copper. They are also great source of vitamin, mineral and antioxidants, which are upto 40 times higher than those recorded for more mature leaves.
During this lockdown period lot of health conscious people experienced the goodness of Microgreens by making it at home using the grains (like Mung Beans, Bengal Gram, Corriander, Fenugreek etc) which we already had in our kitchen, They used tissue paper or newspaper as the grow medium. After the harvest, they cooked the greens and ate it. Actually is that the way to cultivate and consume the world’s most natural “Super food”? Will that give you enough nutrients from so called super food? Anyway, we should appreciate the fact that everyone understood the importance of living life healthy.
