Sunflower microgreens are ready to eat in 8–10 days.
They contain vitamins A, B, D, and E, potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, and iron.
Benefits: They contain fibre, carbohydrates, protein and saturated fatty acids and essential amino acids. AAmino acids deliver enzymes to cells to repair vital functions, including tissues. Sunflower microgreens contribute to blood formation, strengthen bones and nerves, and help to remove mucus from the bronchi and activate cells. Microgreens are rich in antioxidants, which support cell regeneration, promote a healthy heart, and can slow down the aging process. Vitamins C, E and selenium improve artery health and reduce high blood pressure. Magnesium in shoots supports the cardiovascular, nervous, and immune systems. Sunflower shoots are rich in zinc. This boosts reproductive health and interacts with over 300 enzymes to help the body function effectively.
Use in breakfast porridge, omelet, smoothies, in various spreads, vegan poke bowls, salads, pasta dishes, on pizzas, and eat as a snack.
