A member of the cruciferous family, composed of underdeveloped flower buds attached to the central stalk. Cauliflower is a great source of a sulfur containing compounds; study by Hu et al (2006) confirmed that vegetables from the cruciferous family, containing Sulforaphane trigger the liver to produce enzymes that detoxify cancer causing chemicals. This is amazing and for this reason it's so important to eat CAULIFLOWER, KALE , CABBAGE and BROCCOLI ORGANIC!!!!!
