Dried Broccoli

Staple Vegetable & Popular Prebiotic

One of the top ten most common vegetables in the world, broccoli originated from wild mustard. Mediterranean farmers bred the mildly bitter cruciferous to be the thick, satisfyingly crunchy vegetable we know today. The grassy, slightly bitter flavor of broccoli pairs well with garlic and lemon peel.

Broccoli is exceptionally high in bone-supportive vitamin K and has as much immune-supporting vitamin C as an orange.1 It’s also rich in antioxidants, which benefit a healthy inflammation response.2 Prebiotics such as broccoli are growing in popularity as their relationship with probiotics is becoming more widely understood in digestive health and immune support.

Our wide variety of air-dried broccoli cuts can be added to a variety of applications, including soups, packaged rice and pasta meals, snacks, green powders, and vitamin supplements. Our dehydrated broccoli is also a nutritious addition to food for cats, dogs, hamsters, rabbits, and other pets.

Ask your sales rep about the availability of freeze-dried broccoli.

Upcycled Product

Food waste has a significant environmental impact. Not only does wasted food mean the water, soil nutrients, and other resources used in its growth were wasted, food waste also releases methane as it decomposes – a powerful greenhouse gas.

The broccoli that BCFoods sources for dehydration are irregular pieces from IQF and Fresh packaging and processing, as well as overages of perfectly fine product. Without companies like BCFoods, this “irregular” and extra food would go to waste. Instead, it will be used to add nutrition and flavor to packaged food for humans and pets around the world.
