Broccoli is healthy vegetable in the cabbage family whose edible green flowerheads are eaten. Broccoli is high in vitamin C and dietary fiber. Boiling broccoli reduces the levels of suspected anti carcinogenic compounds, such as sulforaphane, with losses of 20–30 percent after five minutes, 40–50 percent after ten minutes, and 77 percent after thirty minutes. However, other preparation methods such as steaming, microwaving, and stir frying had no significant effect on the compounds in the vegetable.
