super broccoli

super broccoli

A proprietary cruciferous vegetable developed at the Institute of Food Research (IFR) and John Innes Centre, both based in Norwich, UK, by cross-breeding a wild variety of broccoli discovered in 1983, which has high concentrations of glucoraphanin. Glucoraphonin is converted in the GI tract into sulphoraphane, achieving serum levels that are up to 4 times those seen with garden variety broccoli. Sulphoraphane reduces chronic inflammation, inhibits mitosis associated with early cancer, and shores up antioxidants.

An interesting comparison is found on the website for Beneforte, a trademarked brand of broccoli that apparently has nearly triple the sulforaphane yield of standard broccoli: http://www.
A long-term breeding program to increase glucoraphanin levels led to the commercial release of Beneforte broccoli, which was launched in the UK in 2011.
Three years of field trials at more than 50 different sites in Europe and the US have shown that Beneforte broccoli consistently produces two to three times more glucoraphanin than other leading varieties of broccoli.
New research shows that Beneforte increases the amount of sulfur it takes up from the soil, and also channels more of it into glucoraphanin.
These findings explain how Beneforte consistently delivers more glucoraphanin than ordinary broccoli.
Ruthlessly pursued by Ferrante's men, Beneforte dies protecting Fiametta, and while she escapes, his body is transported back to the palazzo to be used in a dark ritual.
The new broccoli, called Beneforte, contains two to three times more glucoraphanin than standard broccoli.
Compared with normal broccoli, eating Beneforte broccoli raises sulphoraphane levels two to four times.
