The Instacart guide to broccoli sprouts
About broccoli sprouts
Broccoli sprouts are essentially the baby version of broccoli. The sprouts are what grow from the seed before it turns into a bush, and are what you see emerge once a broccoli seed germinates. Broccoli sprouts have a flimsy white stem and very small green leaves.
Like other sprouts, broccoli sprouts have a clean, fresh taste with a bit of a grassy flavor. They don't taste like broccoli, but you get the same benefits. The sprouts have a much milder flavor than broccoli, which makes them taste better raw, and makes them perfect for people who don't enjoy the flavor of regular broccoli.
Broccoli sprouts are very good for you and contain nutrients similar to other cruciferous vegetables such as kale and Brussels sprouts, but all the nutrients are packed into a small, more concentrated package with the sprouts. They also contain high amounts of sulforaphane, which is a compound that helps battle cancer. Sulforaphane reduces inflammation and detoxifies the body, and in addition to its cancer-fighting capabilities, it can also help reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
Broccoli sprouts also have high amounts of fiber, which can help you feel full, and they are very low in calories, making a perfect addition to a healthy diet. One cup of broccoli sprouts has about 4 grams of fiber, and it contains about 60% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin C. These sprouts also have high amounts of vitamin A and vitamin K.
