  • Sulforaphane is produced from the hydrolysis of the glucosinolate glucoraphanin in the presence of the endogenous enzyme myrosinase. Sulforaphane has been shown to provide cancer prevention through a number of mechanisms including the upregulation of detoxification enzymes and epigenetic changes. Optimal temperature and pH for sulforaphane formation from broccoli was determined. Sulforaphane formation was measured in three commercially frozen broccoli samples preand post-cooking. The results… CONTINUE READING
