Analysis on Composition and Content of Glucosinolates in Broccoli Flowers and Leaves

Glucosinolate composition and content were evaluated in flowers and leaves of 12 different broccoli varieties. The results indicated that there were 9 glucosinolates in broccoli, namely Glucoiberin (IBE); Progoitrin (PRO); Sinigrin (SIN); Glucoraphanin (RAA); Gluconapin (NAP); 4-Hydroxyglucobrassicin (4OH); Glucobrassicin (GBC); 4-Methoxyglucobrassicin (4ME); Neoglucobrassicin (NEO). Total glucosinolate content in flowers was 1-5 times higher than in leaves. The predominant glucosinolate in broccoli was glucoraphanin.
