AeroFarms Microgreens: Packed With Nutrients
Microgreens can contain considerably higher levels of vitamins and carotenoids—about 5X greater—than their mature plant counterparts, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. These small greens not only pack a flavorful taste, but they are also packed with essential vitamins and nutrients with significant health benefits. Micro Broccoli in particular is also a rich source of sulforaphane, a sulfur-rich compound studied for its antioxidant, detoxifying & disease prevention properties.
