Our sweet Pea Tendrils lend a tender crispness to any dish whether served raw or cooked.
Some Quick Facts:
- Our microgreens are harvested on a regular weekly basis, to ensure that our customers receive the freshest produce and the highest quality. Fully compostable/biodegradable packaging is used to stay environmentally conscious. Our produce remains mold free for up to 14 days if Stored Correctly
- The weight information displayed on our packaging is the actual usable plant weight.
- If you prefer your microgreens in a live growing plant tray, please take the following into account, Caution! Some microgreen varieties tend to form mold in the root area, if not properly attended to. Make sure that your planting mat is well ventilated at all times. Please note that the weight of the products offered in live growing trays include the grow mats, water, roots and packaging. This is why the usable plant weight is generally 40-50% below the declaration. All live grow tray suppliers have the same complications when it comes to mold control. See what Wikipedia has to say!
The #Microgreen Team works on food safe premises and is fully government approved. We care about the environment, hence why we only use compostable/biodegradable packaging.
And let me tell you, they are equally delicious both ways. During warm months, toss some pea shoots in a salad or a wrap (or just grab a handful out of the fridge to munch) and when you’re in the mood for cooked food add them into a vegetable stir fry for a little brightness.
Sometimes, farmers harvest the pea shoots too late and the stems can be long and tough. We harvest early and this way we make sure you get the fine, delicious tendrils with softer, shorter stems.
Let’s dive into their nutritional values:
Pea shoots are a great source of three chemoprotective agents: folate, antioxidants, and carotene. Folate helps produce and maintain cells and protects against DNA damage. Antioxidants help the body fight free radical damage, commonly associated with high cancer risk. Carotenes help inhibit antioxidant activity and are commonly associated with increased cancer prevention.
One cup of pea shoots provides about 35% the daily value of vitamin C and 15% the DV of vitamin A. In comparison, this is seven times as much vitamin C as blueberries and four times as much vitamin A as tomatoes. They are also an excellent source of vitamin K, providing 66% the DV from a one-cup serving.
Pea shoots are dense with the antioxidants and phytonutrients needed to support the body’s complex inflammation system.
