Organic Freeze-Dried Broccoli Sprouts

£12.40£49.45

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.

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. A growing body of evidence has linked sulforaphane to decreased inflammation markers, increased antioxidant levels, and the treatment of various different types of cancers, along with numerous other health benefits.

♥ The Process

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

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.

Whole sprouts with ability to convert glucoraphanin to sulforaphane intact, unlike powdered formulas and many supplements

Freeze-dried immediately after harvesting when sulforaphane potential at its peak and to ensure maximum freshness and nutrients

    • Grown organically from Soil Association certified seed.
    • Super concentrated source of sulforaphane and nutrients: 1g of freeze-dried = 5g of fresh sprouts
    • Just need 1 teaspoon, or 5-10g as a daily dose

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.

These freeze-dried broccoli sprouts are grown from certified organic 100% Broccoli Calabrese seed which we use to produce our best-selling Broccoli Sprouts.

Once opened, consume within 4 weeks. Must be kept sealed to preserve shelf life.

Hi are your freeze dried broccoli sprout from Calabrese or broccoli raab? Thank you.Do they taste peppery?

Support

Hi Sofiya,
Yes, they do taste a little peppery, as they do when fresh.
At the moment they are made up of 50% Calabrese and 50% Raab, but our next batch will be 100% Calabrese seed. This should be on the website by January.
Best regards

Can you give me some idea of how large the various weight packages are please? Also what is the “shelf” life? Trying to work out what I can fit in my freezer!

Support

Hi Helen,
The packages are fairly small, about 15cm by 15cm. The shelf life is approximately 1 year if unopened. You will have to be careful they don’t get any moisture inside of them though, if they are going in your freezer! They are heat-sealed and they contain oxygen absorbers, but be careful not to get the outer packaging wet or damp as this will cause them to absorb moisture and rehydrate, in which case they won’t keep.
I hope that helps.
Best regards
Ellisha

Hi, could you cite the research for freeze drying? This is so cool!

It’s from research trials and studies carried out and published by Dr Jed Fahey, head of the Chemoprotection Center at John Hopkins University, a unit that researches preventative solutions. Much of it can be found in this great video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0lBVCpq8jc&ab_channel=FoundMyFitness
Well worth a watch!

Once the package is opened, do I put it in the freezer?

No need to do that, just keep it sealed either in it’s original packaging, or in a sealed container.
