What kind of solution the vegetables are grown in makes a difference in how nutritious they are. Hydroponics has come a long way also in growing vegetables just as nutritious as those grown in soil. Plants traditionally get nutrients from soil. Plants get nutrients from a solution with hydroponics instead of soil.
- This article contends that vegetables grown hydroponically (in a special solution instead of in soil) can be just as nutritious, if not more, than those grown the traditional way in soil.
- Plants make their own vitamins, so vitamin levels tend to be similar in both growing methods, and you can add minerals and other elements to the solution to make up for any that might be missing.
- Nutrient content varies anyway for produce in general, regardless of the growing method, and besides, all vegetables are healthy if you eat a lot of them!
"The bottom line is it depends on the nutrient solution the vegetables are grown in, but hydroponically grown vegetables can be just as nutritious as those grown in soil."
