Our Story

Welcome to Enriched Being Microgreens, operated by us, Tara & Paul Scott from our home in Perthshire, where we believe that good health and vibrant living begin with the power of nature. We are passionate about providing you with the finest quality microgreens, grown with love and care. Let us take you on a journey to discover the wonders of microgreens and how they can enrich your life.

Why Microgreens?

At Enriched Being, we believe in the transformative power of microgreens. These tiny, young plants are bursting with flavour, nutrients, and vitality. They are the epitome of nature's ability to provide us with an abundance of goodness in a small package. Microgreens are not only delicious but also offer a range of health benefits, making them an ideal addition to any diet.

What are Microgreens?

Microgreens are the tender, young shoots of various vegetable and herb plants. They are harvested at an early stage of growth, just after the cotyledon leaves have fully developed and the first true leaves have emerged. Despite their small size, microgreens pack a concentrated punch of flavour and nutrients. They come in a vibrant array of colours and flavours, ranging from peppery to nutty and sweet.

How Do We Grow Them?

At Enriched Being, we take great pride in our sustainable and innovative farming practices. We grow our microgreens indoors using vertical farming techniques, allowing us to maximise space and resources while maintaining optimal growing conditions.

One of the key components of our growing system is the use of coconut coir, a natural and eco-friendly alternative to soil. Coconut coir provides an ideal growing medium, offering excellent water retention and aeration properties. It is free from harmful chemicals, ensuring that our microgreens grow in a clean and nutritious environment.

Benefits of Microgreens

The benefits of microgreens extend beyond their exquisite taste. These tiny powerhouses are packed with essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Research suggests that microgreens can be up to 40 times more nutrient-dense than their mature counterparts. Incorporating microgreens into your diet may help boost your immune system, support digestion, and enhance overall well-being.

Additionally, microgreens are an excellent source of dietary fibre and can be a valuable addition to a balanced diet, promoting satiety and aiding in weight management. Their concentrated flavours also make them a delightful and healthy substitute for traditional garnishes or toppings.

How to Use Microgreens

There are endless possibilities when it comes to using microgreens in your culinary adventures. You can enjoy them fresh, as a vibrant garnish on salads, soups, sandwiches, or as a flavourful addition to your favourite dishes. The delicate textures and unique flavours of microgreens add a touch of sophistication to any plate.

Furthermore, at Enriched Being, we offer a range of microgreen nutritional powders. By carefully drying and grinding our microgreens, we create versatile powders that can be incorporated into smoothies, juices, sauces, and even baked goods. These powders provide a convenient and concentrated way to enjoy the goodness of microgreens in your everyday meals.  This is also a great way to ensure you get your nutritional boost even when travelling!
