Packed With Nutrients:

Microgreens can contain considerably higher levels of vitamins and carotenoids—about 5X greater—than their mature plant counterparts, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. Not only do these greens have a unique taste, but they are also packed with essential vitamins and nutrients with significant health benefits. Micro Broccoli in particular is a rich source of sulforaphane, a sulfur-rich compound studied for its antioxidant, detoxifying and disease prevention properties. 

Bursting With Flavor:

In addition to an emphasis on nutrition, AeroFarms is also known for its award-winning FlavorSpectrum™ Philosophy . Passionate about great tasting, real food, the AeroFarms product line is curated by AeroFarms' expert team of plant scientists, growers, and nutritionists. The team searches high and low for the best seed varieties and creates the perfect growing recipe in order to create the most delicious, flavorful microgreen experience possible for consumers. The AeroFarms FlavorSpectrum™ Philosophy was designed to represent the breadth of flavors and varieties grown inside their indoor vertical farms. Each color of the retail package has been paired with a specific tasting note to bring this concept to life. Across the leafy greens packaging line, the cool blue colors represent the sweet and mellow notes, while the intense reds represent bold and zesty flavors.

Microgreens are here to stay – microgreens were named one of the Today Show's Top Trends of 2021 , and AeroFarms Micro Broccoli was then honored as one of Whole Foods Market's Top 10 Food Trends of 2022 before being named to Progressive Grocer's 2022 Editors' Picks list. AeroFarms Microgreens sets a new standard in“getting your greens in” – these small greens are packed with nutrition and bursting with flavor.
