If food has many vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, antioxidants, flavonoids, etc., it is usually labeled a superfood.

Why? Because those nutrients can affect your health positively, and there is evidence to support it.  However, no single food by itself can prevent disease.

Microgreens Healthy: Forty Times More

We harvest microgreens before all the food in the seed is used to fuel a mature plant’s growth.

The cotyledons condense the nutrients.

In the most widely cited study on microgreens, scientists reviewed 25 commercially available microgreens for essential vitamins and carotenoid concentrations.

The researchers found large variations among the 25 varieties they tested.

They showed that the microgreens contain significantly more amounts of vitamins and carotenoids than the mature plants.

Microgreens Nutrition Data

For example, according to the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference (SR), phylloquinone (vitamin K1) in mature amaranth, basil, and red cabbage were 26 times less than the values for their corresponding microgreens.

Red cabbage microgreens had six times more vitamin C than mature red cabbage.

And the study further showed that “red cabbage microgreens contained over 40 times the vitamin E content of its mature counterpart.

Why Are Superfoods Important?

Based on the latest research, the model human diet is mostly plant-based.

It will include a wide selection of greens, beans, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and healthy animal products such as fish.

American institutions have numerous studies on microgreens and according to the American Mayo Clinic, healthy food must meet at least three of the following criteria:

  1. It must be readily available.
  2. It must be a good or excellent source of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.
  3. It must be high in phytonutrients and antioxidant compounds (vitamins A, E, and beta carotene).
  4. There must be evidence that it can help reduce some chronic diseases.

Microgreens meet those criteria.
