Broccoli is a member of the cabbage family, and is closely related to cauliflower.
Its cultivation originated in Italy. Broccolo, its Italian name, means "cabbage
sprout." Because of its different components, broccoli provides a range of tastes
and textures, from soft and flowery (the floret) to fibrous and crunchy (the stem
and stalk). Broccoli contains glucosinolates, phytochemicals which break down to
compounds called indoles and isothiocyanates (such as sulphoraphane). Broccoli
also contains the carotenoid, lutein. Broccoli is an excellent source of the vitamins
K, C, and A, as well as folate and fiber. Broccoli is a very good source of phosphorus,
potassium, magnesium and the vitamins B6 and E.
