Microgreens and mature veggies differ in nutrients, but both might limit weight gain
Young vegetables known as microgreens are reputed to be particularly good for health.

Results to date show their nutritional profiles differ, as do their effects on gut bacteria. Yet, tests in mice suggest that both microgreen and mature vegetables can limit weight gain.
