Broccoli sprouts are very healthy with a mild broccoli flavor. In addition, they have a high concentration of healthy nutrients. Broccoli sprouts are delicious with fish dishes and on sandwiches
Broccoli sprouts contain a high concentration of SGS (Sulforaphane Glucosinolate), an anti-oxidant that occurs naturally in broccoli. SGS helps your body strengthen its own immune system and increase your resistance. One 10 gram tuft of broccoli sprouts contains about as much SGS as 300 grams to 500 grams of regular broccoli. In addition, broccoli sprouts are rich in vitamins C, E and K1.
The difference between Broccoli and Broccoli Calabrese is the content of Sulforaphane: 6 to 8 times higher with Broccoli Calabrese versus Broccoli. Sprouting would also increase the sulforaphane content in the seed.
Sulforaphane is a substance known for its anti-cancer properties, with preventive and curative effect.
