Micro-Greens

Micro-greens for your Health

Micro-greens along with fresh vegetable juicing are some of the most powerful nutritional practices. Certain people wish to overstate the difference between “Sprouts” and “Micro-greens”. The truth is both are beneficial to your health. The sprout is extremely biologically active and in essence is an awakened seed that has exponentially changed its own in-heritant nutritional value. The common fear of sprouts in the food industry usually refers to the poor selection of seed quality and water management practices as they are grown Hydroponically (in water). The importance is not in thinking that one is better than the other as there has been significant research to show the amazing health benefits of both. There has been significant research to show that hydroponically grown 3 day old broccoli sprouts are extremely beneficial for ones health however where Micro-greens are superior is in the fact that it is grown in soil and hence a representation of the true processes of nature. This added value of the soil and ocean minerals are one of the keys to vibrant health. As our soils get depleted of minerals and as conventional farming practices use many artificial fertilizers. To eat something that is grown and harvested on weekly basis local to your environment with not only a fantastic mineral value but also a surplus of enzyme activity along with the ultimate nectar for healing; chlorophyll, this special food item should never be omitted from ones diet if one wishes to achieve longevity in health and vitality. Enzymes are necessary for just about every internal body process. From the digestion of food, to repairing tissue to regulating metabolism, enzymes are needed.

From the time we are born, we usually have a predominantly cooked food diet which is to a larger extent devoid of enzymes. Enzyme deficiency leads to premature aging and lack of energy. To avoid these symptoms, we recommend consuming Micro-greens on a daily basis as an addition to your meals and where applicable in your fresh vegetable juicing.

Nutrition is the study of the nutrient requirement and movement of the body, therefor it is always important when trying to make a healthy choice to understand whether the foods you are consuming are being absorbed or not. Bio-Availability of nutrients is just as important as the selection of good quality foods. There is no better bio-availability than that obtained through the consumption of young baby plants and fresh vegetable juicing.

Processes

  • Rs custom soil blend with Peat Moss, Compost and Sea Minerals
  • Certified Organic seed, laboratory tested
  • Micro-greens are grown under Natural Light and Full Spectrum
  • Purified Water is used to water micro-greens
  • Micro-greens are packed in Eco-friendly Flexible packaging and clam shells containers with a tamper proof label to ensure the right amount of oxygen flow

  • All Micro-greens are packed and delivered within 24 hours of harvesting

Sprouts vs Micro-greens:

Making their way from family kitchens into trendy restaurants and stylish markets, Sprouts and Micro-greens are becoming the fad adding lovely flavours to meals and dishes. These immature vegetables are short on size but huge on nutritional value, however, they do differ when it comes to looking at the growing process causing other factors to change as well.

Let’s take a look!

Sprouts are simply germinated seeds. When consumed, essentially you are eating the seed, root, stem and small underdeveloped leaves. Factually, the seed is never planted but rather placed in enclosed jars or glass sprouting jars. This is called Hydroponic Sprouting. Because of the high moisture content and humidity level inside the jar/container, the seed germinates very fast and rids any possibility of pathogens. As per the feeding method, Sprouts should be watered once a day allowing the sprout to purify itself and rid any form of microbes. Other method’s of sprouting include using a sprouting bag. Seeds can be placed in sprouting bags and are repeatedly soaked in water causing the seed to germinate faster as well. Normally, the sprouting process occurs with very low light source or in a dark place. Types of sprouts include Alfalfa, Sunflower, Cress, Mung bean, Chick Pea, Buckwheat seeds and many others as they germinate quicker and take up to 4-7 days. These methods cannot done with Micro-greens. It is simply a completely different process.

When taking a look at Micro-greens, they are a tiny form of edible greens produced from the seeds of different vegetables, herbs and other plants. Micro-greens are normally grown in a shallow container of soil — not like sprouts which are germinated in water and harvested when they are still small and immature. Micro-greens should be grown in High Light Conditions (Full Spectrum Light) (as it is a great bactericide/purifier), low humidity levels and good air circulation. The more ventilation and light, the more colour and flavour unto your Micro-greens. As for the the feeding process in the life of a Micro-green, they are watered when the soil gets dry which is usually 4-6 times in its life. Micro-greens are harvested at a tender age in its life causing it to have a rich nutritional value, a delicate smoothness and you can enjoy the freshness and essence in each every bite.

Because of its longer life span, Micro-greens have much more refined and stronger flavours than sprouts making them an ideal accent to many dishes and snacks. Micro-greens unlike Sprouts take 7-14 days growing time. When the Green has two leaves which are fully spread they are more so ready for harvest. In essence, Micro-greens are simply baby seedlings that are harvested before they develop into larger plants. The Micro-green growing process, is not contributive to any microbes or pathogens and with good care and a little love, your Micro-greens will be looking fantastic.

As you can see, there is a fair bit of difference between both Sprout and Micro-greens, however both are unique in their own way. Producers of incredible Health Benefits, these two trendy baby greens are spicing up the kitchen!

Tuesday March 24th, Rejuvenating Spring had the pleasure of holding a Sprouting / Micro-greens Workshop for the Grade 5 Class from the Burlington Waldorf School with much interest from the students. It was an amazing event as they learned about the use of Organic soil, Germinating and Planting micro-greens, the harvesting process & the nutritional value… and of course had a great time at Spring Time Farm by getting to taste the delicious micro-greens and being able to see the growing process.

Rejuvenating Spring hopes to develop interest in students and youngsters in the future for urban farming and sustainable agricultural practices. Thank you Walford School.

Grade 5 class for coming in and a warm thanks to Ms. Todman for your much appreciated organization and Lexi for your wonderful drawing. Happy Growing!

Do it at Home

Work from home? Hungry for a snack to eat but sick of all your Pop Tarts? Rejuvenating Spring is here to help you grow your own Micro-greens

Growing your own Micro-greens for some may seem time-consuming, but in fact is effortless when you consider the benefits that they will add to your health. A recent study as of 2014 tested 25 different varieties of Micro-greens measuring different vitamins and minerals plus other related carotenoids and enzymes. Amidst the 25 different Micro-greens tested, respectively speaking, Micro-greens contain the highest concentration of Vitamin C, carotenoids, Vitamin K and Vitamin E — about 6x greater than mature plants. Another nutritional study was done in the summer of 2012 indicating potential that Micro-greens may have higher nutritional value compared to fully grown vegetables. With this in mind, the Rejuvenating Spring team has designed a simple and basic method to help you grown and taste your own fresh Micro-greens.

Our team is devoted to your health and well being and works to create methods that are efficient and productive. We aim to educate the public on how to live a healthy lifestyle by growing their own Micro-greens.

T : Trays x2

HE: Heavy Weights

G: Seeds (Germinated)

L: Light (Sunlight)

O: Organic Soil

W: Water

Let’s get started with your Micro-green from home adventure:

Step 1: Soak seeds overnight (8-10 hours). Strain & Rinse seeds- let seeds sit in strainer allowing water to drain for 24 hours until seeds have germinated

Step 2: Now that you’ve reached step 2 you should be feeling pretty confident that your seeds have germinated and they should have little white tails. Lets get started with planting! Fill sprouting tray with soil (approximately 1 inch deep). Press soil down to flatten. Spread germinated seeds evenly over soiled surface — be sure that the seeds do not overlap too much. Water soil evenly and thoroughly. Place second tray on top of seeded tray — place weight (ex. heavy bricks, weights) on top of empty tray. Keep tray in darkness for 24-36 hours until seeds start to push up and top tray starts to lift.

Step 3: You’re almost there! Finally, remove weight & top tray — place seeded tray in light (window sill/full spectrum light). Using a watering can; water tray evenly once a day. With a little love, a little tweaking and a little bit of improvisation et Voila! Your micro-greens are ready to harvest within approximately 7 days.

Step 4: Harvest your Micro-greens and enjoy. For recipes with Micro-greens, visit our Recipe page with delightful salad and micro-green dishes on how to incorporate your freshly harvested oh so glowing greens.
