1. Enhanced Digestive Health

Cruciferous microgreens like broccoli, red cabbage, and radish, are high in fiber, supporting digestion, a healthy gut, and reduced bloating, which can enhance nutrient absorption and lower the risk of digestive issues.


2. Heart Health

These microgreens, especially red cabbage, contain antioxidants and fiber that can help reduce bad cholesterol and support artery health, promoting overall heart wellness.

I have been using BeMicro microgreens for two years and I'm not exaggerating when I say they come everywhere with me - restaurants, vacations, picnics... Eating nutrient-dense meals is important to me and it is great to know I'm getting that extra pinch of nutrition every day. Even better with this mix! I'll be back for more!

3. Vision and Immunity Boost

This blend of cruciferous microgreens is high in Vitamin A which supports eyesight, immune function, and promotes healthy skin, making it an essential nutrient for overall well-being.


4. Detoxification support

Sulforaphane, an antioxidant found in Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, is a potent activator of the Nrf2 pathway, which can help boost the body's natural detoxification processes and protect cells from oxidative stress.

Our family has been a broccoli booster fan for several years, but we just received the new Booster Blend and it was fabulous!! It’s a blend of cabbage, broccoli and 3 kinds of radishes. It gives your meal not only a nutritional boost, but it contains loads of minerals and antioxidants. We love to put them on eggs, salads, sandwiches, soups and potatoes. Love the new rebranding labels and looking forward to trying the separate tins of radish and cabbage microgreens too…so yummy!

5. Kid Friendly

All three of these microgreens are mild in flavor and rich in nutrients, making them ideal to sneak into any meal, even for picky eaters.


6. Long Shelf Life

Freeze-dried microgreens have a shelf life of over a year, allowing you to enjoy their nutritional benefits for longer periods without worrying about spoilage.

My favorite addition to any meal! Perfect for adding nutrients while traveling or even at home! Couldn’t recommend this product enough

What are the benefits of BeMicro?

Unlike many greens brands that source their ingredients from around the world, potentially exposing them to additives, pesticides, and herbicides, BeMicro partners with Colorado farms to grow the ingredients. We cultivate them in a fully controlled indoor farm located outside Denver, ensuring premium quality and purity.

Why do I need microgreens?

Studies indicate that a staggering 9 out of 10 adults fall short of consuming the daily recommended intake of greens. BeMicro offers a solution by being composed entirely of microgreens, which are renowned as some of the most nutrient-rich plants on Earth.

Can you provide a nutritional breakdown?

Our blend has been meticulously chosen based on the robust nutritional benefits identified in the peer-reviewed research sources mentioned below. We're currently in the process of finalizing our nutritional label for a comprehensive overview.

  1. Research from the University of Maryland's College of Agriculture and Natural Resources
  2. Studies from the National Library of Medicine
  3. Data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture
  4. Findings from the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry

Where are BeMicro's products sourced and produced?

We cultivate, cleanse, freeze-dry, and package our greens within an indoor, completely controlled farming environment situated in Boulder, Colorado.

What's included in your Boosters?

Our Boosters from BeMicro consist of three distinct microgreen varieties: a dedicated broccoli variety, radish blend, red cabbage and a blend of all of them called Booster Blend.

Equally significant is what we exclude from our products. Grown in a meticulously controlled farm, our greens are nurtured without resorting to pesticides, herbicides, or any additives. This not only ensures a cleaner product but also makes them more sustainable than traditional organic offerings.

How are BeMicro's microgreens grown?

Our microgreens are grown in soil in a greenhouse in Colorado from organic and non-GMO seed, using organic fertilizers and nutrients, ensuring a product that's both of high quality and sustainably produced.

How should I best utilize the Boosters?

One of the highlights of our boosters is their versatile application – there really isn't a wrong method! While many adore blending it into their smoothies, others have taken a creative spin by incorporating it into sauces, soups, or even as an innovative seasoning, such as enhancing their avocado toast. So, feel free to experiment!

Is BeMicro suitable for children?

Absolutely. BeMicro is perfectly safe for children to consume. Given that it consists of just raw, freeze-dried microgreens, it's akin to having fresh green vegetables.

Many parents have found it a winning strategy to incorporate these greens into children's dishes. Popular choices include blending it into pasta sauces, mac n' cheese, and scrambled eggs.

Is it safe for my dog to consume Boosters?

Absolutely--sounds like you have a pampered pooch!

What exactly does "freeze-dried microgreens" mean?

Microgreens refer to young vegetables, roughly 14 days old, which are a tad older than typical sprouts. It's during this growth phase that they're richest in essential nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. By freeze-drying them, we effectively extract the water while preserving this rich nutrient profile. Learn more from our blog on freeze-drying!

Does the freeze-drying process diminish the nutritional value of the fresh greens?

Not at all! Scientific consensus indicates that only a negligible amount of nutrients are lost through freeze-drying.

In our freeze-drying procedure, we strictly avoid any additives or preservatives. This guarantees a product with prolonged shelf life that retains its nutritional value and has a flavor reminiscent of fresh microgreens.

What's the shelf life of Boosters?

Once opened, our product remains fresh for up to a year. However, given its benefits and taste, you're likely to use it up well before then!

What's the recommended storage method for Boosters?

It's best to keep them in a cool, shaded location. Ensure the lid is securely fastened to maintain their freshness.

Is daily consumption of BeMicro's Boosters recommended?

For optimal benefits from your microgreens, it's advisable to incorporate them into your daily regimen, much like any other healthful habit.
