Blue Kale Sprouts
A large sprout study funded by Australia's Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation (RIRDC) assessed the anti-cancer potential of a number of common sprouts, including kale sprouts. For each tested sprout, an anti-cancer score was calculated based on the sprout's glucosinolate content. While glucosinolates themselves have limited biological activity, their metabolites – particularly isothiocyanates – have significant cancer-fighting potential due to their ability to induce phase 2 detoxification enzymes. These beneficial enzymes have been shown to promote the elimination of potential carcinogens from the body.
In this study, broccoli sprouts and red radish sprouts were the ultimate anti-cancer champions, but also kale sprouts showed significant anti-cancer potential.
