Wow Micro Leaf (http://www.wowmicroleaf.co.uk" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer">www.wowmicroleaf.co.uk), the living micro leaf brand from VHB, has launched a new concept for chefs and food service.
The packaging temporarily slows the growth of the living micro leaves, which extends the shelf life and helps the product to stay fresh and full of flavour for longer. The micro leaves are grown in a soil-free medium, which means they are clean to prepare and cook with.
Two-Michelin-starred chef Daniel Clifford of Midsummer House, Cambridge, said "Micro herbs and leaves are a fantastic way to add impact to a plate of food. The key for me when sourcing any ingredient is that it needs to deliver the best possible flavour and to do that it needs to be as fresh as you can get it.
"Living micro herbs are ideal because they are living, breathing plants right until you snip them for use in a dish. You can't get much fresher than that! Like many chefs my fridge space is precious and the new packaging makes life a lot simpler because you can stack it so easily."
