Organic vs. Conventional Microgreens

Organic vs. Conventional Microgreens

Microgreens are incredibly popular right now, and for good reason—they're healthy, versatile, and easy to grow. But when it comes to microgreens, not all greens are created equal. In fact, there is a big difference between organic microgreens and "conventional" microgreens. Here's a look at the benefits of organic microgreens so you can decide if they're right for you.

What Are Microgreens?
Microgreens are young greens that are typically grown from the seeds of vegetables, herbs, or other plants. They are usually ready to harvest in about two weeks and have a slightly different flavor than their full-grown counterparts. For example, radish microgreens have a peppery flavor, while cilantro microgreens have a citrusy flavor.

Organic vs. Non-Organic "Conventional" Microgreens
When Synthetic (Petrol/Oil Based) Fertilizers are used, they DESTROY THE SOIL and make what grows there more and more dependent on being fed. Thats why most people with nice lawns have more and more work overtime, and if they stop it looks like it was never fertilized soon after!

Which means the nutrients your Veggies roots were looking for werent there WHEN THEY WANTED... only when the farmer managed to spray them. Like having a kitchen empty all week, and BOOM its loaded with food for a day than you have to survive off what's eaten until next month... hopefully. 

Non-organic microgreens are grown with the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. These chemicals usually remain on the greens even after they're harvested, which means they end up in your body when you and or your family eat them.

Organic microgreens are grown using fertilizers and pesticides that were once living in some way (Manure based vs Crude Oil based). This means that they are not only better for you, but also better for the environment.

The Bottom Line
So, which type of microgreen is right for you? If you're looking for the healthiest option, then organic microgreens are the way to go. They may cost a bit more than their non-organic counterparts, but they're worth it for the peace of mind that comes with knowing you're eating healthy greens that haven't been treated with harmful chemicals.
