Microgreens are veritable power-foods. Bigger than sprouts and smaller than baby leaves, they are bursting with vitamins, minerals and secondary phytochemicals. Niko Rittenau agrees with this. He is a nutritional advisor specialising in vegetarian diet and is co-founder of the Plant Based Institute in Berlin. Together with Heimgart, he wants to bring these green superfoods to as many people as possible. “The concentration of vital substances is many times higher than in their fully-grown, vegetable counterparts. This makes microgreens very healthy power packs, even in the winter months.“
