However, what makes scientists more concerned about is the unique substance it contains—glucoinolates. Glucosinolates, also known as glucosinolates, or glucosinolates for short, are a class of secondary metabolites of sulfhydryl glycosides synthesized from amino acids, which are commonly found in cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli.
