nutritional value

Based on scientific studies, we can give you an overview of the nutritional value of broccoli microgreens.

sulforaphane
Figure 3

“Similarly, in sprouts of eight broccoli cultivars, grown without exogenous nutrients, the inducer activity (nearly all of which arose from glucosinolates) per unit plant weight declined initially in an exponential manner from a maximum in the seed (Figure 3) and continued to decline thereafter, approaching the values in mature broccoli heads after about 15 days (data not shown), whereas the total inducer activity per plant remained constant. The inducer activity fell from 1.8 million units/g of seeds to 180,000 units/g fr. wt. at 9 days, largely due to an increase in plant weight from seeds (3.3 mg) to 9-day-old sprouts (60 mg).”1

5 We compare the values from the study to the nutrient reference values (NRVs) defined in ANNEX XIII of Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011. To claim that a food has a significant amount of a vitamin or a mineral, 100 g product must supply at least 15% of the NRV. The same rule applies to the claim that a food is high in or contains a vitamin or mineral.
