In recent years, Pure Food has been researching production processes to produce important active ingredients, such as Sulforaphane and Polyphenol, which are found naturally in cabbage products – especially broccoli germ. Now we have succeeded and we can produce high-value nutrients.
BROCCOLI – MORE THAN FOOD
Broccoli is full of the healthy properties we need to be healthy. Unfortunately, not everyone loves broccoli, and even for those who like it, it is not easy to eat large amounts of broccoli every day. That’s why Pure Food has developed a nutritionally rich powder that contains a lot of bioactive sulforaphane. Only 1 gram of our powder contains the same amount of sulforaphane as 100 grams of broccoli. This means that you can take full advantage of the healthy properties of broccoli without eating large amounts every day.
From SPRING to POWDER
Broccoli sprouts are rich in vitamins and minerals and sulforaphane is about 20-50 times higher than in adult broccoli. The production of our broccoli germ powder provides a particularly high nutritional value of sulforaphane, which proves to be a “miracle drug” for many lifestyle diseases and other diagnoses.
SULFORAPHANE – HEALTH BENEFITS – FOOD AS A MEDICINE
Sulforaphane has been extensively studied and is of medical interest because of its beneficial health effects. Sulforaphane has been shown to protect against a variety of cancers, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, have anti-inflammatory effects, and be useful in autism and osteoporosis. There is strong epidemiological evidence for the health benefits of broccoli consumption and many benefits are associated with sulforaphane. Since the compound was isolated from broccoli and found to have cancer-preventing properties in a rat study published in the 1990s, more than 3,000 publications have described similar effects in the studies.
Animal studies have shown that sulforaphane has many health benefits. Among other things, it can help reduce blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels, oxidative stress, and the development of chronic diseases. Health benefits also include a reduction in the risk of stomach inflammation and cancer, prostate cancer, and other cancers. It has also been shown to reduce the risk of aggression being detected, to have a rejuvenating effect on the immune system, and to prevent cardiovascular disease.
Pure Food has developed its own production process – a new technology for freeze-drying. This technology preserves and protects the nutrients and essential active ingredients in the germ. This allows us to produce broccoli seed powder with a very high sulforaphane content with a long shelf life.
Our doctoral student Ladia Jilek is now participating in a 4-year clinical trial funded by the European Union. Sulforaphane in food and its effects on cells are being studied, and the brain associated with autism, in particular, is being studied. Sulforaphane is today the most studied herbal substance in the world.
