Title Health Promoting Properties of Broccoli (Brassica oleracea L. var. italica)
Authors G├Âlge SARIKAMI┼×
Abstract The association between consumption of fruits and vegetables and reduction in the risk of several diseases particularly cancer has been studied extensively over the past several years. Broccoli has gained importance for protection against cancer due to its rich vitamin and mineral content as well as sulforaphane (4-methylsulphinylbutyl isothiocyanate) content. Sulforaphane is a plant secondary metabolite known to have anticarcinogenic properties and naturally occurs in cruciferous vegetables, broccoli in particular. The aim of the current study is to provide updated information on the importance of broccoli, that has been studied extensively over the last decade, in delivering potential health benefits.
