  • The shoots grow above the plant so they can catch the sunlight - It is this quick growth which gives the stems their attractive green colour, sweet taste and tender texture.

Broccoli is considered the “Jewel of Nutrition” - it has as much calcium ounce per ounce as milk and contains important phytochemicals: beta-carotene, indoles and isothiocyanates. Phytochemicals prevent carcinogens (cancer causing substances) from forming and help boost enzymes that detoxify carcinogens.

Slenderstems are rich in Vitamins A & C and High in Calcium, Fibre and Folic acid, Enzyme Booster, Bone Strengthener and Anaemia buster.
