Does anybody know if the harvesting time affects glucoraphanin content and sulforaphane formation of broccoli sprouts? Do they also get affected by light exposure or lack of it?

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to SE biology. This review looks like it has information on at least the light exposure aspect of your question - it might be worth checking it out bit.ly/3gkoqPZ $\endgroup$ – user438383 Aug 22 '20 at 9:02
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for the article. In case, someone else is also interested in this topic, here is the link orgprints.org/11395/1/11395.pdf to another study in which researchers compared glucosinolate profiles of different B. oleracea sprouts. To my surprise, the researchers found that red cabbage sprouts contained about twice as must glucoraphanin as broccoli sprouts. $\endgroup$ – storgt2 Aug 22 '20 at 13:19
