Sunflower Shoot Microgreens

Sunflower Shoot Microgreens

Microgreens are baby plants that fall somewhere between a sprout and baby green, and interestingly they often contain higher nutrient levels than mature vegetable greens.

Sunflower microgreens are high in protein, and fiber which helps to control hunger and regulate blood sugar levels. They also contain powerful antioxidants to protect cell structure and phytosterols which have been shown to protect the heart by lowering cholesterol.

Sunflower microgreens can be used in salads, soups, wraps, sandwiches, and baked goods. Sunflower microgreens are unique in that they have enough bulk to them that they can be used as a primary base for salads in place of lettuce.
