Freeze Dried Kale Powder
For decades, scientists have known that phytonutrients in many healthful foods work as antioxidants.
Cauliflower Sprouted Powder is part of the Brassica oleracea species like broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts and collards and shares many of their impressive nutritional benefits:
Antioxidant: Cauliflower is a good source of vitamin C, manganese, beta-carotene and phytonutrients. These antioxidants provide broad spectrum support in the fight against free radical damage which can reduce the risk for diseases caused by oxidative stress, such as
cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Anti-inflammatory: Chronic inflammation can significantly increase the risk of cancers and other chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, arthritis, obesity, diabetes mellitus, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Cauliflower is a good source of vitamin K, omega-3 fatty acids and glucobrassicin, all of which are strongly anti-inflammatory. A cup of boiled cauliflower contains about 11 micrograms of vitamin K and 0.21 g omega-3 fatty
acids. Digestive Support: There are nearly 12 grams of fiber in every 100 calories of cauliflower. A substance in cauliflower called sulforaphane can help protect the lining of the stomach by preventing bacterial overgrowth of Helicobacter pylori thereby reducing the risk for stomach ulcer and cancer.
Plant sterols are known to have serum cholesterol lowering effects. A high dietary intake might therefore have a positive impact on health. All food items of vegetable origin contain some amount of plant sterols. Norm√©n L and co-workers from G√∂teborg University, Sweden, found the highest concentrations were found in broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and olives among 14 common vegetables in market. 
Epidemiologic studies suggest that cruciferous vegetable (such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and cabbage) intake may lower overall cancer risk, including colon and prostate cancer. Sulforaphane, an isothiocyanate found in cruciferous vegetables, has proved to be an effective chemoprotective agent in cell culture, carcinogen-induced and genetic animal cancer models, as well as in xenograft models of cancer.
Recent studies suggest that sulforaphane offers protection against tumor development during the "post-initiation" phase and mechanisms for suppression effects of sulforaphane, including cell cycle arrest and apoptosis induction are of particular interest. Cauliflower is a vegetable belonging to the family Cruciferae, genus Brassica, var. Botrytis.
Antioxidant activities: Cauliflower extracts showed significant free radical scavenging activities, ferric reducing ability and capacity to inhibit lipid peroxidation. In addition, the antioxidant activity was linearly correlated with their phenolics content.

Why Freeze Drying vs. other less expensive drying methods?
Freeze drying, or Lyophilization is the most common processing method for removing moisture from biopharmaceuticals, and it can increase the stability, temperature tolerance, and shelf life of these products. Although Freeze drying is well established within the industry, it requires expensive equipment that takes up a great deal of space within a production facility. Freeze drying also can take days to complete, and manufacturers that need a powdered product must incorporate a granulation step to the process. In an environment where budgets are tightening, and where time and facility space are at a premium, Freeze drying might be a difficult option for some companies.
