With a mix of Arugula, Mustard, Broccoli and Radish, this is a tasty addition to wraps, sandwiches, salads or wherever you want a little extra zip! We named this mixture after Brassica (brÃ¡s-si-ca), the genus of plants in the mustard family to which the seeds in this mix belong. This microgreen mix has high levels of sulforaphane, a cellular detoxifier that may prevent cancer and rejuvenate the immune system*.
Brassica vegetables are rich in indole-3-carbionl, a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells. Researchers at the University of California at Berkeley have recently discovered that 3,3′-diindolylmethane in Brassica vegetables is a potent modulator of the innate immune response system with potent antiviral, antibacterial and anticancer activity*.
They are also a good source of carotenoids, with broccoli having especially high levels.

Large vigorous microgreens with an unusual, licorice-like flavour. Fenugreek is a great addition to curry dishes or as an addition to salads.
Fenugreek is a traditional herb for colds and flu. Arthritis has a low incidence rate in India where a lot of fenugreek is consumed. Drinking 1 cup of fenugreek tea per day, made from the leaves, is said to relieve the discomfort of arthritis*.
Fenugreek seeds are used as a medicinal in Traditional Chinese Medicine under the name Hu Lu Ba, where they are considered to warm and tonify kidneys, disperse cold and alleviate pain.
Vitamins B6 and C, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc.
Fenugreek acts in the stomach by reducing the amount of sugar that our bodies are able to absorb from food.
Peas are a favorite with many microgreen lovers. We like to use them for salads as they give a nice crunchy texture. Also good in sandwiches. I often just grab a small bunch and munch on them by themselves. Don’t forget smoothies. Great way to add calcium and amino acids to the mix.
