Broccoli has long been touted as one of the original superfoods (despite Popeye’s affinity for spinach). Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could broccolify everything and bring all those health benefits to other foodstuffs? Apparently that idea isn’t simply science fiction: Now you can order K-cups of coffee with the antioxidant boost of broccoli.
Baltimore Coffee and Tea Company collaborated with Brassica Protection Products, a brand spawned from John Hopkins University, to launch their Brassica line of coffee. The new products claim that a single cup can “boost your body’s natural ability to defend itself against pollutants and toxins for up to 72 hours” thanks to TruBroc, an ingredient extracted from broccoli seeds.
