February 8, 2024 (press release) –

MICROGREENS have exploded in popularity in recent years, and are now appearing in supermarkets – as well as in many restaurant kitchens…

Microgreens are vegetable greens (not to be confused with sprouts or shoots) harvested just after the cotyledon leaves have developed with one set of true leaves. Microgreens are used as a visual, flavour and texture enhancement, and  are increasingly used to add sweetness and spiciness to foods.

Not only that, but they often have comparatively high levels of nutrients.

They can have a long shelf-life if stored correctly and Sirane’s absorbent pads for microgreens help provide the optimum storage conditions.

Our absorbent pads provide the low-level of absorbency needed to protect the product during transportation/retail. Microgreens are very susceptible to degradation caused by moisture, and keeping packs dry offers shelf-life benefits.

Dri-Fresh® absorbent pads for microgreens are commonly 800cc/M2 absorbency, and white, although a range of colours and absorption levels is available. A range of shapes and sizes is available to suit all applications/packaging formats, including clamshells. We can supply recyclable paper-based absorbent pads for microgreens, should they be needed.

We can also offer a growing media for microgreens, cress etc, which is perfect for anyone looking to supply their microgreens as live plants.

Our Sow-And-Grow® mats are designed as a replacement for peat. The highly open structure encourages root penetration and healthy rapid growth. They are typically used in conjunction with plastic trays, but also in other ways.
