Customer Favorite: The Nutrition Mix
The Nutrition Mix is composed of Sugar Pea, Sunflower, Broccoli, Radish, Cabbage, Kale and Beet Microgreens. Our most nutritional and flavorful varieties. It is crunchy, sweet and delicious.

They help activate every cell of the immune system and help to keep gut bacteria healthy, improving one's ability to fight disease. The nutrition mix contains a wide variety of vitamins and minerals that are important in staying active and healthy. It can be used in so mane different applications but can also be eaten straight as a salad with some dressing.

What is a Microgreen?
Microgreens are very young versions of your favorite leafy greens and vegetables. They are usually harvested 7-24 days after germination, right after the plant's first leaves (cotyledon leaves) emerge. Because they are so young they contain a condensed amount of vitamins and minerals that not only makes them tasty, but a great source of plant based nutrition. We grow many different kinds of microgreens that all offer different nutritional benefits. Weather you are a chef, avid home cook or casual eater, try some microgreens to add the perfect punch of excitement and nutrition to your next plate.
For those of you interested in varieties not on this residential shop please check out our chef website via our homage and contact us for lead times.
How do they compare to Adult Greens?
Just like a seed contains a very high density of energy and minerals, microgreens contain a high concentration nutrients and flavor!
An American chemical study looked at nutrient levels of 25 different microgreens and compared them to full-sized leafy vegetables and herbs. Nutrient levels in different microgreens varied, but they always had higher levels per gram of vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A than mature crops.
Xiao, Z.Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, Aug. 22, 2012.
Another study at the University of Maryland in College Park showed that microgreens were four to 40-fold more concentrated with nutrients than their mature counterparts.
For example, red cabbage microgreens had 40 times more vitamin E and six times more vitamin C than mature red cabbage. Cilantro microgreens had three times more beta-carotene than mature cilantro.
Qin Wang, PhD, assistant professor, University of Maryland, College Park.
