Did you know…
Broccoli provides phyto-nutrients known for their antioxidants and that 30 grams of its microgreens provide 50 times more nutrients than a kilo of adult broccoli?
On the tip of the tongue (info on taste)
Broccoli microgreens taste broccoli – no surprise there – but the flavor is multiplied by three and the fresh taste is much greater.
What you will want to know
The broccoli microgreens are delicate and tender. Like adult broccoli, they are considered a purifying food and an anti-cancer food par excellence because of their anti-inflammatory properties (the sulforaphane that natural product companies extract from adult broccoli to offer in capsules or capsules) which increase considerably during germination. Broccoli microgreens are also packed with powerful food antioxidants like beta-carotene and vitamins C and E. They also provide an excellent source of vitamin K, B2 and B9 while containing vitamins A, B5 and B6 and minerals important like copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, zinc and potassium. They even contain chlorophyll and proteins (35%).
Keep it slightly damp.
Consume before the microgreens reach 15 centimeters or put them in the refrigerator when it reaches this height.
The broccoli microgreen is at its most comfortable when it is always on soil, but as it should not exceed 15 centimeters in height, it must be put in the refrigerator to slow its development before it reaches this height or cut and keept for a few days in a plastic bag, in the cold, if it has not been consumed yet.
