Greens powders are a practical solution for increasing your daily intake of nutrient-rich greens, but have you ever wondered how they’re made?
The production process for most greens powders on the market involves combining various dried greens and blending them into a fine powder. Unfortunately, quality standards within the wellness industry are subpar — allowing brands to include other ingredients like additives, fillers, and sugars. Even worse, many brands source their ingredients globally, giving them no control over the quality and composition of their products. Many greens powders with globally sourced ingredients include pesticides and herbicides that go unaddressed on their label.
We’re doing things differently at Daily Elements. We've perfected our greens powder to have all of the great benefits of greens — but none of the gunk. Let’s break down our process.
One superstar ingredient
Daily Elements greens powder is made of 100% raw, freeze-dried microgreens. Our blend features four pure microgreen varieties: pea, kale, red cabbage, and broccoli. With no additives, fillers, or sweeteners, our powder is all about the greens.
Microgreens are the ultimate superfood, packed with concentrated nutrition, antioxidants, and vitamins. At just 10-12 days old, plants in their microgreen stage can contain up to 40 times more nutrients than their adult counterparts. To put that into perspective, one single ounce of red cabbage microgreens provides the same amount of vitamin E as 40 ounces of adult red cabbage.
We grow our greens
Outsourcing isn’t our thing, so we started an indoor, fully controlled farm outside Chicago to grow the world’s cleanest, most nutrient-dense microgreens. This allows us to have complete control of the production process, from seed to powder.
Because we believe in sustainable and healthy farming practices, we never use pesticides, herbicides, or additives in our process. As a result, our microgreens are significantly less likely to be exposed to harmful substances like heavy metals. Not to mention, our farming methods are even cleaner and more sustainable than traditional organic farming.
Then, we freeze-dry our greens
At Daily Elements, we take pride in managing every step of the process so the product you receive maintains the utmost integrity. Our greens are grown, freeze dried, and packaged in the same fully-controlled environment free of milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soy.
Our gentle freeze-drying process best preserves the nutrients in our microgreens without the need for additives or preservatives. This allows us to create a 100% non-GMO, pesticide-free product that locks in 98% of the raw plants’ nutrients while also providing an extended shelf life. By taking such care in our process, we can guarantee a product that is not only healthy but maintains its nutritional value for as long as it's on your shelf.
A better greens powder
The end result is a microgreens powder that is superior in both cleanliness and nutrition when compared to other greens powders. And the best part? Because Daily Elements migrogreens blend is hand-picked for its high levels of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants — you'll get nearly 7 cups of greens into just ¾ of a teaspoon. Thanks to the small serving size and subtly of flavor, Daily Elements is much easier to enjoy compared to other greens powders on the market.
Once you've placed your order, we'll package it with materials we've carefully considered for size, quality, and sustainability — like our recyclable glass jar and metal scoop, or the recyclable cardboard box it's wrapped in.
With Daily Elements, you can feel the many health benefits of microgreens with a product that integrates seamlessly into your routine. How's that for hassle-free health?
