How to Use Freeze-Dried Microgreens - For Flavor and Nutrition

Freeze-dried microgreens have gained popularity for their concentrated nutrients, long shelf life, and versatility in the kitchen. In this blog, we'll dive into the world of freeze-dried microgreens, exploring their benefits, various uses, nutritional advantages, and how you can easily incorporate them into your daily meals.

How to use Freeze-Dried Microgreens

Easily add a boost of nutrition, color and taste to any meal by sprinkling one to two teaspoons per person over soups, stews, wraps, and sandwiches. Dress up your leftovers, oatmeal, eggs, burgers, steaks, even PB & J, or just eat them plain. 

 

For best results, and to keep as much nutritional value as possible, eat them raw! Cooking can burn away some of the more delicate nutrients.

Nutritional Benefits

The freeze-drying process locks in the nutrients found in microgreens, making them a powerhouse of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Freeze-drying has been shown to preserve even the most delicate nutrients, better than traditional methods of preservation like canning or dehydrating. Check out our blog on why we freeze-dry our microgreens!

 

Storage and Shelf Life

Proper storage is crucial to maintaining the nutrients and flavor of freeze-dried microgreens. We store them in airtight aluminum tins. Aluminum is infinitely recyclable while fully blocking air, moisture and light, all things that can degrade the microgreens. 


When stored in this kind of way, they can retain their flavor, texture, color and nutrients for an extended period.
