New Leaf Flavors Microgreens’ focus is to grow healthy people through clean food and education. Our farmer, Linda Borghi, was farming in the Hudson Valley for 15 years and was nicknamed “The Lettuce Lady” because of her love of growing greens.
Microgreens are 4-40% more concentrated than their mature counterparts. One ounce of broccoli microgreens is equivalent to eating 1-1/2 lbs of broccoli! Because they are harvested right after germination, they are very concentrated in nutrients and antioxidants. Just Google Sloan Kettering and John Hopkins and you will learn about the numerous benefits of broccoli microgreens. Besides, they are really yummy.
The most popular varieties are broccoli, kale, kohlrabi, radish, garlic chive, amaranth, red cabbage, spinach/mustard, pac choi and pea . They have an excellent shelf life and are easy to incorporate into salads, sandwiches, smoothies and atop entrees and pasta dishes.
