Best source for Broccoli sprout seeds & grower?

howard-2 Dec 11, 2003 10:37 AM

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good device in which to grow broccoli sprouts? And what is a good source for the seeds?

Finally, does anyone know is any consumer or health organization has tested different strains of seeds to see which one has the mosrt "good stuff"?

    I'm afraid the only way to guarantee the levels of sulforaphane is to buy BroccoSprouts because they test their seeds and sprouts for levels of 'good stuff.'

    Yes. Not all broccoli sprouts are alike. Dr. Paul Talalay, Jed W. Fahey, and their colleagues at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine have tested more than 50 varieties of broccoli seeds. Their work shows that some types of broccoli seeds provide much more sulforaphane. top
