Broccoli - Purple Sprouting Facts

Purple sprouting broccoli has much the same nutrient values of Calabrese providing cholesterol-lowering benefits, especially when steamed. It is also a rich source of vitamin D and beta-carotene and particularly rich source of a flavonoid called kaempferol. Recent research has shown the ability of kaempferol to lessen the impact of allergy-related substances on our body and this connection is thought to help explain the often observed anti-inflammatory benefits of broccoli.
