Mild broccoli flavor. Dark green leaves with long stems.
“Broccoli Microgreens is a phase in a plant’s life when it is between 10 and 14 days old (approximatly 1-3″ tall). During this stage, sulforaphane (pronounced ‘sull-fore-uh-fane’), one of the plant’s natural compounds peaks. Sulforaphane is nature’s most potent known Nrf2 activator–which means it activates a biological process that actually creates antioxidant proteins in your body. This compound is also present in a few other cruciferous vegetables like Bok choy, cauliflower, cabbage, and kale. However, broccoli is one of the foods highest in sulforaphane, particularly at the sprout and microgreen stages.” from International Functional Foods Association
