Frozen Broccoli: Lacks Nutritional Punch. Luckily scientists have found a way to put it back.

Also, wanted to post this, as I've recently become a fan of Cal. D-Gluc. Thanks for posting this JLone (a while back... here: http://tnation.T-Nation.com/free_online_forum/diet_performance_nutrition_supplements/t_booster?id=5085303&pageNo=0 )

That sucks, if I am going to cook broccoli I always go for the frozen bags.
Just can’t win sometimes…

Shitty, right? That’s the reason I posted it though - because I figured most ppl assumed frozen is nearly as good. I didn’t realize that, in the case of broccoli, mfgrs actually steam it to reduce the odor!

bulletproofexec.com/calcium-d-glucarate/[/quote] Yeah I have seen that. Good stuff. I think I first heard about it from Poliquin like 6(??) years ago, and recently re-sparked my interest in it because of it’s ability to also help out the liver. I’m coming to realize just how important the liver is! – not that this was ever in doubt, just appreciating it more I suppose… Cool info and a nice chart here carahealth.com/health-conditions-a-to-z/digestive-system/detox/365-phase-1-and-2-liver-detoxification-pathways60.html

Just tell 'em that cancer stinks a lot worse. I haven’t a clue how odor relates to sulphorophane content, only that I read part of the reason they steam it is to reduce odor. Most likely though, if it’s frozen stuff, it lacks the anticancer stuff. If you read into the research, they concluded that adding a radish will replenish the enzyme (lost in the processing) needed to turn sulphorophane’s precursor into the anti-cancer stuff.

Also, check out Superfood. It has a shit ton of sulphorophane - if you ever feel like giving your office reprieve.
