The top 15 superfoods you can grow in the Airgarden
Superfoods are foods — mostly plant-based but also some fish and dairy — that are nutritionally dense and good for one's health.
Although kale grabs most of the headlines as the go-to superfood, there are at 14 others that out rank this perennial favourite for nutrient density.
A study by the Centre for Disease Control & Prevention scored fruits and vegetables according to their nutrient density, identifying those containing 10% or more of the daily recommended intake of critical nutrients including fibre, iron, protein and vitamins b,c and k.
Based on this science, these are the 15 most nutrient dense foods on the planet, all of which can be grown in your Airgarden:
- Chinese cabbage / wombok
- chard / silverbeet
- beet greens
- leaf lettuce
- cos lettuce
- collard green
- turnip green
- mustard green
Although these foods are jam packed with nutrients, they typically lose 40-60% of their nutritional value during their long journey from the farm, to the supermarket, and eventually to your plate. If you’re ready to ditch overpriced, old leafy greens from the supermarkets, An Airgarden is a great way for you to grow and enjoy garden to plate freshness in ever meal.
