Our bestselling Broccoli sprouts, carefully freeze-dried to preserve the nutrients and provide maximum sulforaphane content. A super-concentrated source of antioxidants, 1g of freeze-dried is equivalent to 5g of fresh sprouts. A 120g freeze-dried pouch holds 600g of fresh sprouts.
Broccoli sprouts are incredibly nutrient-dense, containing up to 50 times the nutrients found in mature vegetable Broccoli, including 50 times more glucoraphanin (converted to sulforaphane). They are widely recognised as a chemoprotectant and nature’s richest source of sulforaphane, with a growing body of evidence linking this to decreased inflammation markers, increasing antioxidant levels, and helping treat various different types of cancers, along with many other health benefits.
Keep these in the cupboard and blend in smoothies, sauces and salad dressings. A delicious crunchy flavour, scatter them on top of pasta, curries, stir-fries, soups, and salads for excellent added nutrition and flavour.
Freeze-drying is a complex process that freezes and then carefully removes all moisture from the product. This process protects the delicate enzymes that produce sulforaphane. Research has shown that freezing Broccoli Sprouts can increase sulforaphane content by up to three times. Other methods of removing moisture, such as dehydrating, heat the product and destroy the myrosinase, preventing the ability to release sulforaphane.
Sulforaphane is released through the process of mastication, as the cells of the Broccoli Sprouts are broken down – when the sprouts are chewed or blended. We have not blended the product in to a powder, as this would destroy the sulforaphane. Broccoli and broccoli sprout powders will generally not be able to produce any sulforaphane when consumed.
These freeze-dried broccoli sprouts are grown from our own SkySprouts premium seed mix which we use to produce our best-selling Broccoli Sprouts.
