Broccoli Sprouts


More Than A Sprouting Seed

Brassica oleracea var. italica, or more commonly known as broccoli or Calabrese broccoli, is native to the Mediterranean region and has been bred and cultivated for improved human consumption since the Roman Empire in 6 BC. While being a popular vegetable crop grown for its healthy and tender flowering head, broccoli has also gained worldwide popularity over the past 20 years for its dense, abundant nutrition content known to contain 10-50x more sulforaphane, vitamins, amino acids, alkalines, and living enzymes than its fully matured counterpart. Sulforaphane-rich superfoods, such as organic broccoli sprouts, have been found to help alleviate a number of maladies including chronic inflammation and reducing free radicals. A delicious and subtle way to introduce more broccoli into your family's diet!
