Microgreens pack a nutritional punch. But don’t just take our word for it:

“In general, microgreens contained considerably higher levels of vitamins and carotenoids—about five times greater—than their mature plant counterparts”

“Every 100 grams of raw arugula leaves contain important macronutrients such as carbohydrates, fiber, and proteins; essential micronutrients such as vitamins A, C, K, B2, and folate; and minerals like phosphorus, magnesium, and especially high amounts of potassium and calcium. And that’s just for starters.”

One Researcher’s Reaction to Microgreens:

‘Although nutritional claims about microgreens abound on the Internet, this study is the first scientific evaluation of their nutritional content. Researchers say they were astonished by the results.
“The microgreens were four- to 40-fold more concentrated with nutrients than their mature counterparts,” says researcher Qin Wang, PhD, assistant professor at the University of Maryland in College Park. “When we first got the results we had to rush to double and triple check them.”
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.Tiny Microgreens Packed With Nutrients || WebMD,  by Jennifer Warner
