Functional Foods - Organic Broccoli Powder
If you have learned a little about my journey with my son’s eating struggles, you would already know my strategy; hidden nutrition is sometimes necessary. When it comes to broccoli, no many of us are too keen, especially children.
Broccoli powder can offer a way of injecting some of the essential nutrients from this fantastic vegetable even for the fussy eaters.
Researchers have known for a while that cruciferous vegetables are good for you, and studies consistently confirm that diets rich in cruciferous vegetables are linked to a decreased risk for chronic diseases, like cardiovascular disease and cancer.
The predicament we are facing is the aversion to vegetables among young (not only) people and the possibility of using a broccoli as a powder in meals can be a good substitute.
Why eat broccoli?
- The powder is rich in vitamin K that contributes to the maintenance of normal bones.
- Contains Folic Acid that contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system.
- Potassium contributes to the maintenance of normal blood pressure
- Calcium contributes to a normal energy-yielding metabolism.
- It also contains the Carotenoid Lutein (8.62 mg per 100 g, 1.03 mg per 12 g), a Phytochemical compound among other things.
- The powder is therefore ideal for enriching and enhancing foods and drinks with the nutrients listed above.
- My personal interest is in a sulforaphane glucosinolate (1-ounce serving provides 73 milligrams) more in the blog
- Organic Broccoli Powder is perfect for green smoothies and vegetable juices, salad dressings, soups and much more.
- It can be consumed raw and in hot meals like green curry or soups.
- For a smoothie, stir about 2 tbsp (12 g) of the powder into 500 ml of liquid. The powder can also be used to colour pasta, cake or pizza dough.
- Take 2 tbsp (6 g each) per day to benefit from the effects referred to above.
