Cauliflower – Half

$4.15

*NASAA Certified Organic & Australian Grown – Cauliflower is low in fat, low in carbs but high in dietary fiber, folate, water, and vitamin C possessing a high nutritional density.

Cauliflower contains several phytochemicals, common in the cabbage family, that may be beneficial to human health.

  • Sulfiraphane, a compound released when cauliflower is chopped or chewed, may protect against cancer.
  • Other glucosinolates
  • Carotenoids
  • Indol 3 -carbinol, a chemical that enhances DNA repair, and acts as an estrogen antagonist, slowing the growth of cancer cells.

Boiling reduces the levels of these compounds, with losses of 2030% after five minutes, 4050% after ten minutes, and 75% after thirty minutes. However, other preparation methods, such as steaming andstir frying had no significant effect on the compounds.

A high intake of cauliflower has been associated with reduced risk of aggressive prostate cancer.
