10 Healthy Benefits of Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are tiny green edible buds that look like mini cabbages, around 2.5cm-4 cm in diameter, and they are native to Belgium, around Brussels city – this is the name. They belong to the brassica family, along with broccoli, kale and cabbage, and are usually in the winter season, but you can start seeing them as early as October, and they last till march.

Sometimes called mini cabbages, because of their potentially bitter flavours caused by sulfur-containing compounds, they have appeared on “most hated vegetables” lists. In the U.S., most of the sprouts in Brussels are grown in California, although they may be found on your local farmer’s markets.
