Beetroot, coconut, turmeric and blue algae have all had their turn as the ‘it’ coffee additive, but now the national science agency says its time for broccoli to take centre stage.

CSIRO researchers hope a powdered form of the brassica will not only make its way into your flat white, but also a whole range of snack foods and meals.

Broccoli is recognised as a nutrient-rich vegetable, with plenty of fibre, vitamins A, B1 and B6, potassium, zinc and magnesium, among others.”Two tablespoons of broccoli powder is equivalent to one serve of vegetables,” CSIRO food scientist Maryann Augustin said.
