To Get the Health Benefits of Broccoli:
Is It Best Eaten Raw or Cooked?
A 2008 report by the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry found that boiling and steaming was best for preserving broccoli’s antioxidant status, but that cooking it can destroy vitamin C.
Another piece of research, however, demonstrated that raw broccoli was best when it comes to preserving the levels of sulforaphane.
In short, whether you eat broccoli raw or cooked, it is a valuable addition to a balanced diet.
