Microgreens are tiny and tender counterpart of mature green leafy vegetables, contained higher amounts of minerals and vitamins (Platel and Srinivasan, 2017). Depending upon the variety of seed sown, microgreens are harvested between period of 7 to 21 days after sowing. Microgreens are tiny in size but they have dense source of nutrients. They are considered as functional foods which contain health promoting or disease preventing properties that are additional to their normal nutritional values. These greens can be a good way to fight against food security with their short growing season.
