    First time sprouting in a jar very successful and tasty. I will try microgreens next. I’m loving this experience.

    Broccoli sprouts are a staple on my windowsill, these have germinated quickly. I was pleased with how quickly they arrived, and will definitely use this company again.

  4. Catherine (Verified Buyer)

    These sprout really well as microgreens and are tasty added to salads. They look and taste a little bit like cress.

  5. Hilary Bucci-Pepper (Verified Buyer)

    I bought the mix as I like both broccoli raab and calabrese, they are perfect! Grow well as sprouts and microgreens. I eat these as sprouts every day and will be placing my next order very soon, considering placing as subscription…So handy! Great company to deal with, speedy service. Very happy customer.

  6. Christine Eaton (Verified Buyer)

    I can’t recommend SkySprouts enough! Such a wide selection of scrumptious, great quality seeds, and a super speedy service! I was delighted with my first batch of broccoli micro greens. They are really easy to grow, with a fast germination time. A very tasty addition to my salad mix and morning avocado. Also a tasty snack when mixed with roasted seed….topped with a sprinkle of soy sauce! Enjoy!.

  7. George (Verified Buyer)

    Very quick service, package was clearly labelled and properly sealed.

    I have managed to do my first batch of broccoli sprouting and they taste amazing and very glad I got them. They were easy to grow and had a lot of germination from the batch of seeds.

    Looking forward to purchasing more in the future

Please can you tell me why you are not providing 100% Calabrese seeds

Hi Eric,

Thanks for your message. We do sell 100 % Calabrese seeds, here is the link http://skysprouts.co.uk/product/organic-broccoli-calabrese/

We have found through the years of sprouting that 50/50 makes for a lovely fluffy sprout, not all customers want 100 % Calabrese as it is a lot more expensive seed and Broccoli Raab has lots of great health benefits too!

How much glucoraphanin and sulforaphane is in sprouts from 10 g of calabrese seeds?

Support

Hello 🙂

This is a great question!

Measuring precise levels of glucoraphanin, a glucosinolate that is the precursor to sulforaphane is a complex science. Levels of glucoraphanin can be highly variable in broccoli seed and sprouts and this is dependent on many factors. Studies have concluded that broccoli sprouts generally contain 10 to 100 times more glucoraphanin than broccoli florets (the mature plant), and that the seeds are the richest source of this compound. The seeds need to be sprouted to be edible, as this process gets rid of the enzyme inhibitors present in seeds.

The current most useful data that we have on sulforaphane dosage levels are from clinical trials that have been carried out. These suggest that 1 gram of fresh sprouts has about 0.425mg of sulforaphane. 10g of Calabrese seed will produce about 100g of fresh sprouts. This would be about one jar worth of broccoli sprouts, or a little more in our new GEO sprouters.

As research pointed out by Dr Rhonda Patrick (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zz4YVJ4aRfg&feature=youtu.be) suggests:

60mg sulforaphane is comparable to 140g fresh broccoli sprouts. Study of this level of consumption showed sulforaphane slowed the doubling rate of a cancer biomarker (known as prostate specific antigen or PSA) by 86%.

40mg sulforaphane is comparable to fresh broccoli sprouts. Study of this level of consumption lowered serum triglycerides by 18% and lower oxidized LDL ratio by 13%. Overall, this reduced the trial participants’ atherogenic index by 50%. Study showed sulforaphane reduced inflammation in type 2 diabetics: TNF-alpha by 11%, CRP by 16%.

This research would suggest that you should aim for somewhere between 40mg & 60mg sulforaphane, so 100g to 140g fresh sprouts, or one sprouter jars worth, eaten a few times a week.

I hope this info helps, let us know if you have any more queries 🙂

Best wishes,
Kelda

I am a regular customer via skysprouts.co.uk for both seeds for sprouting and for microgreens. The quality of service, and of the seeds is excellent and the prices for more reasonably sized quantity packs are competitive. I left a couple of helpful reviews on the site for some of my methods. In our times sprouting is both a nutritious fresh food resource and one where the chemical free provenance is known because I grow it with filtered water and TLC
