Red Garnet Amaranth Microgreens – Free Radical Fighter
Native to the Americas, Red Garnet Amaranth Microgreens have a bright red color of garnets, which stand out from other green vegetables. They are rich in protein, vitamin K, vitamin E, vitamin C, calcium, iron, and beta-carotene. They are also rich in peptides, which can help reducing inflammation in our body as well as lower the activity of free radicals, thereby reducing the chance of healthy cells mutating to cancer cells.
- Prepare an inch thick of organic soil evenly in a shallow tray.
- Scatter seeds over the surface of the soil evenly.
- Cover the seeds with a thin layer of soil and spray the surface with clean, filtered water.
- Spray the seeds 1 – 2 times a day to keep the soil evenly moist while waiting for the seeds to grow. Cover the tray with a lid/wet cloth/wet kitchen paper to keep soil moist for the first few days.
- After 8 – 12 days, your microgreens would be ready.
