This “Nice Cream” is SO delicious, I’m not kidding.
But before we get to the recipe, did you know that broccoli sprouts are important additions to your diet for their content of bioactive molecules with potent nutrigenomic potential? What?
Let me explain. Any nutritionist who is keeping up with cutting edge nutrition science is now studying massive amounts of materials in the field of nutrigenomics. Nutrigenomics studies the effects of different food components on gene expression.
Nutrition research is currently examining how nutrition can optimize and maintain cellular, tissue, organ and whole body homeostasis, which requires understanding how nutrients act at the molecular level, including gene expression.
So, as we are moving along in the 21st century, nutrition research has shifted from epidemiology and physiology to molecular biology and genetics.
Which leads me to broccoli sprouts.
Broccoli sprouts contain a particular compound called sulforaphane, which can prevent several cancers, including prostate and breast cancers. This is a compound that may stop the growth of malignant tumors. Whole broccoli has suforaphane, too, but not in as large an amount as the sprouts. One university study found that the sprouts have 10 to 20 times more sulforaphane than whole broccoli.
In a study done at Johns Hopkins, it was found that “Three-day-old broccoli sprouts consistently contain 20 to 50 times the amount of chemo protective compounds found in mature broccoli heads, and may offer a simple, dietary means of chemically reducing cancer risk,” according to study author Paul Talalay, M.D.
Talalay’s research further found that “In animals and human cells, we have demonstrated, unequivocally, that this compound (sulforaphane) can substantially reduce the incidence, rate of development, and size of tumors.”
