Top 5 AeroFarms Micro Broccoli Recipe Inspirations:
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. These small greens not only pack a flavorful taste, but they are also packed with essential vitamins and nutrients with significant health benefits. Micro Broccoli in particular is also a rich source of sulforaphane, a sulfur-rich compound studied for its antioxidant, detoxifying & 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, our product line-up is curated by AeroFarms expert team of plant scientists, growers, and nutritionists. The team searches high and low for the best seed varieties and creating the perfect growing recipe, so our Micro Broccoli is the most delicious, flavorful Micro Broccoli for our consumers. The AeroFarms FlavorSpectrum™ Philosophy was designed to represent the breadth of flavors and varieties grown inside our indoor vertical farms. The team paired each color of our retail package with a specific tasting note to bring our FlavorSpectrum™ philosophy to life. Across the leafy greens packaging line, you’ll find that the cool blue colors represent the sweet and mellow notes, while the intense reds represent bold and zesty flavors.
