View Full Version : Packaged Greens vs Unpackaged Greens?

What is the difference between packaged greens (like Olivia's Organic mixed spring greens) and a head of organic red leaf lettuce. It almost seems like they dehydrate the greens - they seem to have no life to them - what is the process and is it healthy?

I can't claim to know the process - however I could theorize that because the packaged ones are chopped to smaller bits they don't keep as well. Yaknowmsay'n?
I don't think theres anything unhealthy about packaged salad mixes, I like the Marketside Organic Herb Mixes from Walmart, they're my only current means of enjoying some organic Cilantro. Lurves me some dat Cilantro!

Unfortunately they are practically dead. You'd have to eat a whole tub to possibly get enough minerals for the day. The pre-washed baby greens are rinsed in chlorine. Even though it's not as convenient, I'm trying to stick with the whole bunches of greens. You can pre-wash them yourself and store in a container or bag.
