glucosinolates

glu·co·sin·o·lates

(glū'kō-sin'ō-lātes),
A group of secondary plant metabolites occurring in cruciferous plants, especially Brassica vegetables (such as cabbage); hydrolyzed into wide range of biologically active compounds, including isothiocyanates, which show anticarcinogenic activity.

The plant compounds, glucosinolates and isothiocyanates, have anticancer properties and prevent the growth of cancer cells.
This factor coupled with increasing crop production across the globe is expected to support the growth of glucosinolates market during the assessment period.
Summary: This factor coupled with increasing crop production across the globe is expected to support the growth of glucosinolates market during the assessment period.
It will also allow us to identify regions of the genetic code that are heavily associated with health beneficial chemicals, such as glucosinolates. By examining many hundreds of these genetic 'markers' across different growing locations (the UK and Italy), climatic conditions (field and controlled environment), and the whole supply chain, it is possible to create a set of 'markers' for each respective circumstance that will inform us about a plant's propensity to conform to a desired set of attributes.
Plants in the Brassica family possess secondary plant metabolites, glucosinolates, which have been shown to severely depress growth, reduce feed intake and decrease egg production if fed indiscriminately to poultry (Tripathi and Mishra 2007).
3 Romanesco broccoli is also rich in glucosinolates and thiocyanates that help support the liver against potentially toxic substances.
In addition some studies have identified effective compounds within Erysimum plants such as methylthioalkyl, methylsulfinylalkyl and methylsulfonylalkyl glucosinolates [19], sinigrin, progoitrin, glucoiberin, 3-(methylcarbonyl)propyl glucosinolate, glucocheirolin and glucoerysolin [20], 4-isothiocyanatobutanoic acid [21], cardiac glycoside [22].
Editor's Note: It was suggested that isoflavones occurring in soy and glucosinolates in cruciferous vegetables could be responsible for the reduction in symptoms observed in the study.
However, limited amount of RSM has been used in sow diets because of anti-nutritional factors in RSM such as glucosinolates (Gls) and erucic acid [4].
It's also fantastically good for you, with more than twice the vitamin C of oranges, as well as high levels of carotenoids and glucosinolates, which can help protect against cancer ,
These intensely flavored vegetables are unique sources of glucosinolates, a large group of sulfur-containing compounds associated with health benefits.
Phytochemicals, or bioactive food components, such as is flavones in soy foods and glucosinolates in cruciferous vegetables may be the source of the benefit, the researchers said.
