These Bok Choy (or Pak Choi) Microgreens offer a cabbage-like flavor with a crisp texture. This beautiful micro has white stems and green leaves, similar to the full-grown veggie.


Along with it being a tasty and crunchy green, it is also full of fibers and antioxidants! Overall, it’s a vegetable that provides valuable nutrients and is well-suited to a healthful diet. 


It pairs best with salads, burgers, wraps, pizza, stew, rice, and curries.

Microgreens are young vegetable greens that fall somewhere between sprouts and baby leaf vegetables. They have an intense aromatic flavor and concentrated nutrient content and come in a variety of colors and textures. Microgreens vary in taste, which can range from neutral to spicy, slightly sour or even bitter, depending on the variety. Generally speaking, their flavor is considered strong and concentrated.

Microgreens are packed with nutrients!

While their nutrient contents vary slightly, most varieties tend to be rich in potassium, iron, zinc, magnesium and copper. Microgreens are also a great source of beneficial plant compounds like antioxidants. What’s more, their nutrient content is concentrated, which means that they often contain higher vitamin, mineral and antioxidant levels than the same quantity of mature greens.

In fact, research comparing microgreens to more mature greens reports that nutrient levels in microgreens can be up to nine times higher than those found in mature greens. Although vitamin and antioxidant levels varied, levels measured in microgreens were up to 40 times higher than those recorded for more mature leaves.

Health Benefits of Microgreens

Microgreens contain similar and often greater amounts of these nutrients than mature greens. As such, they may similarly reduce the risk of the following diseases:

  • Heart disease: Microgreens are a rich source of polyphenols, a class of antioxidants linked to a lower risk of heart disease. Animal studies show that microgreens may lower triglyceride and “bad” LDL cholesterol levels.
  • Alzheimer’s disease: Antioxidant-rich foods, including those containing high amounts of polyphenols, may be linked to a lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Diabetes: Antioxidants may help reduce the type of stress that can prevent sugar from properly entering cells. In lab studies, fenugreek microgreens appeared to enhance cellular sugar uptake by 25–44%.
  • Certain cancers: Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables, especially those rich in polyphenols, may lower the risk of various types of cancer. Polyphenol-rich microgreens may be expected to have similar effects

    Superfood!

    These vibrant green, tender leaves encapsulate the earthy, crisp flavor I was looking for! This superfood features a wonderfully crunchy texture and a slightly sweet, nutty flavor. I have always been a fan of "regular Bok choy" for my stir-fries but now I can use these microgreens as a better source of vitamins C, A, and K!
