Micro Herbs

Something that has grown in popularity in recent time is micro herbs. We use the term grown quite lightly, because these plants are actually the seedlings of vegetables and herbs, harvested in their early stages of growth.

Also known as microgreens, micro herbs differ from sprouts as they are usually grown in soil and require watering. They tend to be harvested between one and three weeks.

The growing process gives the micro herb a distinctly different flavour to their full grown cousins, and are therefore sought after as a way of adding more tang and panache to dishes.

Beyond their taste, why have microgreens become so popular? One reason is their potential health benefits, as micro herbs contain a high level of antioxidants. There is also research out there that suggests micro herbs contain a higher concentration of nutrients compared to fully grown plants.

Fine Food Specialist has one of the leading selections of micro herbs available anywhere. We have a truly broad selection of fantastic products for you to pick from, including micro coriander, micro parsley, amaranth micro herb and many more for you to pick from.

So if you’re looking to add something different to your kitchen and cooking options, take a look through our range or microgreens.

You can get micro herbs delivered to your door quickly thanks to our excellent delivery service. And if you place your order by 11am from Monday to Friday, you can get next working day delivery.
