Last night, Monday July 21st, Good4U featured on the hit Channel 4 TV show Food Unwrapped. Matt Tebbut and the Food Unwrapped team visited our facility in Cookstown, Northern Ireland in order to determine how Good4U sprouts can be labelled 'Ready to Eat' after concerns were raised that eating raw bean sprouts could be as harmful as eating raw oysters.

The crew documented the process that Good4U sprouts go through so that they won't cause any ill effects on your health.

if you missed the episode, you can catch up with it here on 4oD for a limited time.

Scientists from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health think they’ve found a very simple and cost-effective solution, or at least something that could curb risk of air polltion on our bodies.. Their answer is a broccoli-sprout beverage.

It’s pretty well established that cruciferous vegetables like broccoli have cancer-preventative compounds. Broccoli sprouts specifically are a source of glucoraphanin, which creates sulforaphane when chewed or swallowed. That compound accelerates the body’s ability to detoxify from various pollutants.
