Sunflower greens are amazingly tasty, tender, and beautiful. They are grown from black oil sunflower seeds and take about 12 days from seed to green. They are a storehouse of nutrition including vitamins A, B, C, and E. an incredible amount of potassium, and are high in calcium, magnesium and iron. They are full of amino acids – almost 25% protein! Because they are germinated, the plants stored energy is activated, giving you more minerals and vitamins with fewer calories than a dry seed. These greens are delicious on their own, on a sandwich and in salad. Kids love them!
Our pea shoots are a nutritious leaf green with high levels of vitamins C and A. One small small bag! provides the days requirement for vitamin C, vitamin A, and a significant amount of folic acid. These nutrients protect the body from free radicals, help keep skin healthy and immune systems strong. Pea shoots offer 7x more vitamin C than blueberries, are low in fat, and only 9 calories per 50 gram serving. This shoot is so simple, delicious, and easy to add to your daily diet.
