This month we'd like to tell you more about Pea Shoot Microgreens from Cosmic Greens.
Just one cup of pea shoots provides 35% of the daily recommended value of Vitamin C and 15% of the Vitamin A. This is 7 times as much Vitamin C as blueberries and 4X as much Vitamin A as tomatoes. They are an excellent source of Vitamin K, providing 66% of the RDV. Pea shoots are a great source of iron, helping to prevent iron deficiency and anemia. Pea shoots are by weight one of the best vegetable protein sources.
