Broccoli is a popular and extensively consumed vegetable. It has a characteristic "mustardy" flavor and is noted for its health advantages. The fact is broccoli has been cultivated for almost 2000 years.
Broccoli is a cabbage family vegetable that grows as an annual or biennial plant.
Broccoli is the diminutive version of brocco, which means "little nail" or "sprout," and derives from the Italian plural of broccolo, which means "flowering crest of a cabbage."
Broccoli is known to be a superfood. It's low in calories but high in nutrients and antioxidants that help with a variety of human health issues.
Broccoli has been shown to help prevent cancer, improve digestion, lower cholesterol, detoxify the body, and increase vitamin and mineral absorption. It also improves vision and ocular health, enhances the immune system, protects the skin, prevents birth defects, regulates blood pressure, eliminates inflammation, and avoids allergic reactions.
Many grocery buyers believe that fresh produce is required at all times, regardless of the season. In fact, there are a few veggies for which you should always opt for the frozen variety over the fresh, and broccoli is one of them.
Though modern grocery stores can get food sent in from all over the world regardless of the season, just because it's available all year doesn't mean you should. Broccoli will not only go limp after a few days in the fridge, but it will also lose important minerals and vitamins.
Frozen broccoli is often flash frozen at its peak, resulting in a vivid green color and a nutrient-dense product. This means that in most circumstances, buying a frozen crown is preferable to buying a fresh crown that would sit in your refrigerator for days, losing nutrients and freshness.
