You want to get the most out of what you eat, so we set out to create the world's highest quality broccoli sprout powder. Great for smoothies, juice, and whatever else you can come up with! We start with organic broccoli seeds. They are sprouted until the cell wall cracks (typically 4-7 days) and are then freeze-dried to lock in the maximum amount of nutrients possible (including the active myrosinase enzyme and the glucoraphinin). Once dried they are ground into a powder. It is then packaged and tested as a final step. In addition to our standard safety testing which includes microbiological and heavy metal testing, we also test each batch for glucoraphanin content and myrosinase to ensure the enzyme is active and ready to convert that glucoraphanin to sulforaphane once you eat it.
FAQ's about our Organic Broccoli Sprout Powder
What is the per serving (per scoop) amount in mcg of Sulforaphane, Glucoraphanin, and Glucosinolates?
For the glucoraphanin, our most recent lot tested at 2050 mg / 100 g, which at a 3.4 g serving size, which comes to 69.7 mg of glucoraphanin per serving.
Total Glucosinolates tested 2,910 mg/100 g or 98.94 mg per serving.
The broccoli sprouts vs broccoli powder is that the sprouts are more coarse or grainy. It doesn't "melt" into the liquid as well as the regular broccoli powder so the texture is not as pleasant. Can be ground down better?
The particle size of the powder is actually very similar to our broccoli powder. But with broccoli sprout, the "seed portion" of the sprout is quite fibrous and does not dissolve well in liquids. Which is why it doesn't "melt". Unfortunately, this is just the nature of the broccoli sprout powder.
We recommend letting the powder soak in the water for a few minutes which would allow the powder to fully rehydrate which should make it less "gritty" tasting.
Are products safe to store in the refrigerator or freezer?
The products can be stored in the freezer or fridge after opening. It’ll actually help the shelf life of our beet and fruit powders.
What does 1 scoop of organic freeze-dried broccoli sprout powder equate to?
1 scoop of our organic freeze-dried broccoli sprout powder is equivalent to ¼ cup of fresh organic broccoli sprouts.
Is the Sulforaphane present in the powder?
Glucoraphanin (which is the precursor to Sulforaphane) is present in our powder. The Myrosinase enzyme (which converts the Glucoraphanin to Sulforaphane) is also present in our product and it 3rd party tested to ensure it is active.
Are the sprouts heated before they are used?
No, they are not heated.
How many days do you allow the sprouts to grow before freeze-drying them?
They are sprouted until the cell wall cracks (typically 4-7 days) and are then freeze-dried to lock in the maximum amount of nutrients possible (including the active myrosinase enzyme and the glucoraphanin). Once dried they are ground into a powder. It is then packaged and tested as a final step. In addition to our standard safety testing which includes microbiological and heavy metal testing, we also test each batch for glucoraphanin content and myrosinase to ensure the enzyme is active and ready to convert that glucoraphanin to sulforaphane once you eat it.
Are the containers kept cool prior to shipping?
The containers are kept around 70 degrees.
How many mg of Sulforaphane would you estimate are in a tsp of your powder?
We just test the amount of glucoraphanin and that amount of active myrosinase because that is what exists in the raw sprouts.
We don't standardize it to a certain level, the last batch we tested, tested at approximately 70 mg of glucoraphanin per 3.4 g of powder. 1 scoop is 3.4g.
