Microgreens – Savor Them!
Young plants of vegetables, herbs or cereals, microgreens are known for their concentration of taste and nutrients. BEBG microgreens, based on non-genetically modified organic seeds and cultivated on organic soil, are produced with care in order to provide well-being and good taste to the followers of healthy eating.
A microgreen is the result of seed germination. More precisely, it is the baby size of a grass, cereal, or vegetable plant. It is said that a sprout, depending on the variety, can contain 20% to 600% more nutrients than the mature vegetable of the same variety. It’s simple: microgreens are vegetables before they increase their water content. So you could almost say that the microgreens are concentrates of vegetables.
It is when it reaches between 2 and 15 cm (1 to 6 inches) – when it is not yet mature – that it is found to have the best taste and the highest concentration of nutrients. In addition, when they are cultivated in organic and very rich soil, microgreens feed on it and store maximum amounts of nutrients. Each of the varieties has its fresh, intense taste and has its own list of nutrients.

How to maintain them ?
When you arrive home with your sprouts, there is no problem, because it is very simple to take care of. You can leave them on the counter or on a window sill. The sprouts should be lightly moistened with a spray bottle at least once a day and kept in a cool place. The sun is obviously not fatal to their growth, but direct exposure will require that you water it more often, so that the soil is always slightly moist.
Like a vegetable bought at the grocery store, the sprout will start to lose its freshness after a week. At this point, you will notice that the sprout tends to change color and sag. Depending on the variety, BEBG microgreens must be cut to their baby size, so when they reach between 2 and 15 cm (1 to 6 inches), otherwise their taste will be altered!
To be able to keep them, you will have to cut them, wrap them in a damp paper towel, and put them in the refrigerator in an airtight bag or container. This way, you will be able to keep them for about two weeks.
