Pure Food’s Bioactive Sprouts Concentrate for Increased Antioxidant Capability, Polyphenols and Sulforaphane
What is Pure Food’s Bioactive Sprouts?
one of the most valuable sources of the multidirectional phytochemicals are cruciferous sprouts. Young sprouts have been recognized as a rich source of versatile biologically active compounds such as flavonoids, polyphenols, glucosinolates and other endogenous metabolites with documented anticancer activity and preventive prosperities to modern disease.
Increase consumption of healthy foods
The best way to increase consumption of healthy foods is incorporation into widespread foods such as bread, soup, fish cakes, sausages, juices, tea, ice cream etc. The challenge to incorporate sprouts into processed food is that many of health promoting compounds are very sensitive to food processing. Pure Food Norway AS has developed new strategy of implementing plant nutrients into a ready-to-eat food, while preserving health promoting nutrients.
What is Sulforaphane and Sulforaphene?
is substantiated by numerous scientific studies. Sulforaphane is very sensitive to food processing and makes it difficult to use it in ready-to-eat food or supplements. Therefor we have developed powder which will provide active sulforaphane easily accessible to the body.
Sulforaphene (SFE), a natural isothiocyanate, is forcefully associated with cancer prevention (11).
Documented potential health benefit of sulforaphane:
• ocular and respiratory diseases (5)
• helicobacter pylori growth inhibition (7, 8)
What are Polyphenols, Antioxidants and Carotenoids?
Polyphenols are compounds found in the fruits, vegetables and cereals. Epidemiological
studies have revealed that polyphenols provide a significant protection against development
of several chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), cancer, diabetes,
infections, aging, asthma etc.
Antioxidants protect the body from damage caused by harmful molecules called free radicals.
Many experts believe this damage is a factor in the development of blood vessel disease
(atherosclerosis), cancer, and other conditions.
Carotenoids are plant pigments responsible for bright red, yellow and orange colour in many
fruits and vegetables. These pigments play an important role in plant health. People who eat
foods containing carotenoids get protective health benefits as well.
