Bad taste in ‘Dragon’s’ mouth worth $75,000

A Barrie area couple has won a Premier’s award and an investment from three CBC ‘Dragons’ for their organic wheat and broccoli sprout juice


Rather unfortunate that the bioactive compounds in Broccoli Sprout Juice (Sulforaphane is the major one) are not stable in liquids. So by the time the consumer gets to drink this juice mixture, the bioactivity of their purchase is either all or partially depleted. Assays for stability of the finished product at various intervals after juicing would have revealed the problem. This is why some companies produce a powder which is stable over 2-3 years. The sulforaphane becomes active as soon as the product is stirred into water or other liquid.
