How to grow sprouts in mason jars:
The last article posted on the subject of broccoli microgreens pointed out that adding a sulfur rich hydroponic fertilizer increased broccoli sprouts content of sulforaphane. This confirms we can produce more nutraceutically potent microgreens with an adjusted blend of nutrients. However the redacted description of referenced study, below, compares sulforaphane at all stages of growth and in comparison to mature broccoli flowers. It concludes that 3 days is best and that at 15 days the microgreens will have lost potency in comparison.
When sprouts it was shown that the sulfur rich water enhanced the production of key phytochemicals, with respect to broccoli sprouts, that would be sulfurophane. This can be done by adding a sulfur powder to the nutrient fertilizer solution. Sulfur is an organic additive.
