Broccoli Seeds - 4 oz.
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 1/4 cup seeds 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 Real Food™ Citric Acid Powder per pint of rinsing water to reduce mold formation. Enjoy broccoli seeds alone or as part of a salad.Consider taking these other NOW® products:
