Microgreens vs Sprouts

Microgreens are young vegetable greens that are harvested just after the cotyledon leaves (the first set of leaves to emerge from the seed) have developed. They are typically about 1-3 inches tall and are harvested 7-14 days after germination. Microgreens are grown from a wide variety of seeds, including vegetables, herbs, and grains. They are known for their high nutrient density and versatility in the kitchen. Typically added to dishes as a source of nutrition and flavor - Their high nutritional value also may them great as stand a lone salad or to boost your favorite smoothie.

Sprouts are germinated seeds that are grown in water and are usually eaten whole, including the seed, cotyledon leaves, and stem. They are typically harvested within a few days of germination and are often used as a garnish or added to salads.

In contrast to sprouts, microgreens are grown in soil, which allows them to absorb a wider range of nutrients from the soil. This, in turn, results in a higher nutrient density in microgreens compared to sprouts.

In addition to that, our microgreens are harvested and delivered to your door the next day - insuring you the most nutrient dense microgreens!
