All sprouts are renowned for being healthy. Occupying the top position are broccoli sprouts. Why are broccoli sprouts Number 1? It’s because broccoli sprouts are by far the best source of sulforaphane which is one of the most important phytonutrients to have been discovered in the past 30 years.
What Are Broccoli Sprouts?
Broccoli sprouts are the young shoots of the broccoli plant. Like all sprouts, they’re extremely rich in nutrients because they contain all the information the plant needs to fully mature.
Are Sprouts Good For You?
The answer is a resounding YES! The reason why is that sprouts are loaded with nutrients because they contain the whole plant information concentrated into a very tiny shoot. Sprouted seeds contain a lot of enzymes which are needed to help it grow. The good news for us is that these enzymes are also beneficial for humans and here’s why:
If we eat cooked foods that are devoid of enzymes, the body has to make enzymes needed for digesting these foods. Really our bodies have more important enzymes to make but digestion is one of our priority functions since without nutrients, we die! What’s great about sprouts, is that the enzymes in them help to replace those that our bodies no longer produces so our bodies can return to making more essential enzymes.
Sprouts are a very concentrated source of nutrients and, weight for weight, are richer than mature plants in protein, folate, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese and vitamins C and K.
There are studies showing how sprouting helps increase protein content. Sprouts generally contain higher levels of essential amino acids than the original seeds, with certain individual amino acids increasing by as much as 30% during the sprouting process.
In addition, the proteins in sprouts may also be easier to digest. This is likely due to the sprouting process, which seems to reduce the amount of anti-nutrients by more than 80%. Anti-nutrients such as protease inhibitors, phytates and tannins, stop us from digesting certain nutrients in foods.
Sprouts are also great sources of antioxidants including flavonoids.
Benefits of Sprouts
Sprouts may help control blood sugar levels. Tests done on people with raised sugar levels (diabetics) showed a reduction in haemoglobin A1c after 8 weeks of consuming sprouts compared with those in the control group who didn’t eat any sprouts. Haemoglobin A1C is a marker of how the body manages sugar levels in the blood. This may be down to the amylase enzyme, naturally present in sprouts, and which is the enzyme that helps break down and digest sugars.
Sprouts also help with digestion because of the enzymes they contain. Sprouts contain protease, to help with protein digestion; amylase to help break down sugars and carbohydrates and lipase to help assimilate fats. Much of our modern day food has no enzyme activity so the body is forced to make its own enzymes.
A happy side effect of this abundance of enzymes in sprouts is an anti-ageing effect. By providing the body with a complete food that contains enzymes needed for digesting that food (like sprouts and other raw foods), the body can focus on creating enzymes for other purposes such as anti-ageing. Telomerase helps the telomeres at the ends of DNA replicate perfectly without loss. Telomerase has been called the immortality enzyme.
Broccoli Sprouts vs Broccoli
We all know that broccoli is good for us, but what you may not know is why broccoli sprouts are so much better. In fact, rather than the antioxidants and vitamin C that mature broccoli is renowned for, it’s the sulforaphane that comes from broccoli sprouts that should be getting your attention.
Broccoli Sprouts Benefits
Broccoli sprouts share the same benefits as other sprouts – they are both low calorie, nutritionally dense and abundant in enzymes. But, there is an extra benefit that sets them apart from the rest:
Just to give you a clue as to how important sulforaphane is, we can say that the ONLY reason we grow broccoli sprouts is because of the sulforaphane. Sulforaphane is not present in growing broccoli sprouts, as it is only released when they’re chewed (by insects or humans!) or juiced. For more information about this incredible phytonutrient, please see our page dedicated to sulforaphane.
Broccoli Sprout Juice
If you prefer to minimise your risks, then we recommend you buy the juice of broccoli sprouts which is bottled immediately after juicing so there can be no chance of bacterial growth. The sprouts we grow are nurtured in nutrient-rich media since we use special mineral rich spring water. We make sure that the sprouts grow naturally as they would do in nature (and don’t use a rotating drum). Our sprouts are grown in the perfect temperature and light to maximise the nutrients. Importantly, we rinse our sprouts EVERY 5 MINUTES to avoid growth of mould. When the sprouts are ready after 4 days, they are washed and juiced and immediately bottled. Then we preserve the juices at low temperatures using ultra high pressure (HPP). This process is designed to maximise the amount of sulforaphane in the juice.
We grow broccoli sprouts for the sole purpose of giving you the best source of sulforaphane in the world since we are the only producer of broccoli sprout juice that uses HPP to preserve the juice.
