- by Christofer Oberst
IRVINE, CA - Urban Produce has announced the addition of two new products to its line of living greens, Organic Amaranth and Organic Arugula.
Developed in its research and development labs, the company’s unique microgreen blends have now graduated to full production in its patented High Density Vertical Growing System.
Urban Produce’s living organic Arugula microgreens are showcase a bold, peppery taste and petite crunch. Though small, these microgreens pack strong flavor, dense nutrition, and provide essential nutrients like calcium and vitamin C.
Boasting a vibrant pink color from head to root, organic living Amaranth microgreens can be used to bring a pop of pink to any dish, the company says. They are rich in vitamins A & C, amino acids, and many other essential dietary minerals with a subtle nutty flavor and slight peppery taste.
According to a press release, Urban Produce’s team of growers are working constantly to seed new blends of 100% organic microgreens. All of the company’s products are packaged with the roots attached in order to harness nutrients from the coconut coir. Because the microgreens are living, they can last up to three weeks in the refrigerator and even longer if watered, Urban Produce assures.
