Aren there some food safety risks from eating sprouts?
Brassica has revolutionized the safety standards in the sprouting industry. Our Pathogen Reduction and HACCP Program and safety procedures apply to all BroccoSprouts. Following FDA suggested protocols, Brassica requires all seed to be washed and cleaned with 20,000 PPM calcium hypochlorite prior to sprouting. Using only water and light, the plants are grown under special, natural conditions. They are then tested for sulforaphane GS content. The Brassica Sprout Group has initiated quality and safety control procedures for all facilities that grow BroccoSprouts that are, by far, the most stringent in the industry.
