Cauliflower may be tagged as the ‘white’ version of broccoli, and they are from the same vegetable species. White may be the common variety of cauliflower, but there are also orange, purple and green variants. The green variety is called broccoflower.
Cauliflower is a vegetable that may be liked by few but is known for containing nutrients that fight against several diseases.
There are two main ingredients in cauliflower that are the main ingredients for fighting disease. These are indole-3-carbinol, or 13C, and the photo nutrient sulforaphane. In resent research, sulforaphane was shown to lower the occurrence of breast tumors in lab animals by almost 40%.
