Grown by Baldwin Greenhouse
Microgreens are the seedlings of vegetables and herbs. Once the seed of an herb or vegetable begins to grow, it is considered a seedling. When the seedling begins to grow, this baby plant is considered a microgreen. Microgreens have stronger flavor as compared to sprouts and come in a wide selection of leaf shapes, textures and colors.
Studies suggest that microgreens may contain high concentrations of nutrients as compared to mature vegetables and herbs. Due to the high antioxidant content, microgreens are considered functional food: a food that promotes health and prevents disease.
Many people are not getting the recommended amount of vegetables and fruits per day for many reasons including: access, cost, convenience and taste preference. Microgreens can easily be added to your menu with little cost and provide a huge return in terms of nutrients and customer satisfaction.

Eating vegetables is linked to a lower risk of many diseases. This is likely thanks to the high amounts of vitamins, minerals and beneficial plant compounds they contain. Microgreens contain similar and often greater amounts of these nutrients than mature greens. As such, they may similarly reduce the risk of the following diseases:
Heart disease: Microgreens are a rich source of polyphenols, a class of antioxidants linked to a lower risk of heart disease. Animal studies show that microgreens may lower triglyceride and “bad” LDL cholesterol levels.
Alzheimer’s disease: Antioxidant-rich foods, including those containing high amounts of polyphenols, may be linked to a lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Diabetes: Antioxidants may help reduce the type of stress that can prevent sugar from properly entering cells. In lab studies, fenugreek microgreens appeared to enhance cellular sugar uptake by 25–44%.
Certain cancers: Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, especially those rich in polyphenols, may lower the risk of various types of cancer.
Polyphenol-rich microgreens may be expected to have similar effects.
While this seems promising, note that the number of studies directly measuring the effect of microgreens on these medical conditions is limited, and none could be found in humans. Therefore, more studies are needed before strong conclusions can be made.
Eating microgreens is generally considered safe. Nevertheless, one concern is the risk of food poisoning. However, the potential for bacteria growth is much smaller in microgreens than in sprouts. Microgreens require slightly less warm and humid conditions than sprouts do, and only the leaf and stem, rather than the root and seed, are consumed.
To keep up with our servsafe certification we do weekly tests on our microgreens to ensure that there are not any micro bacteria within our products.
