NOW Broccoli Seed for Sprouting, 113g
NOW Sprouted Broccoli Seed Details
- For Sprouting
These seeds are specially selected, tested, and stored for high germination sprouting use. For best results, store the seeds in a dry (but not refrigerated) place.
Researchers have recently discovered a number of exciting phytonutrients with amazing health protecting properties. One phytonutrient derived from broccoli is Sulforaphane. Researchers have determined that broccoli sprouts contain a much greater Sulforaphane potential than broccoli florets. Enjoy these sprouts regularly.
Broccoli is one of the healthiest vegetables around due to naturally occurring sulforaphane glucosinolate. Did you know that broccoli sprouts naturally have about 50 times more sulforaphane potential than broccoli florets? They're also a good source of fiber.
Soak one fourth cup of NOW Sprouted Broccoli Seed overnight in room temperature water. Drain and put in sprouting jar or other sprouting unit and follow directions for that unit. Store in a dark environment for several days. On about the fourth day, place in indirect sunlight to develop chlorophyll in sprouts. Rinse and drain daily until sprouts are ready ( about 3-5 days). Add 1/2 tsp. of NOW® Citric Acid Powder per pint of rinsing water to reduce mold formation. Enjoy zesty broccoli seeds alone or as part of a salad.
