In Order for Vitamins in Broccoli Not Lost

When boiled broccoli with hot water, the broccoli will lose at least 34-22 percent of its vitamin C. During boiling or steam, the nutrients in broccoli could be merged with the liquid used, which in turn is wasted. Cooked in the microwave is the best way to warm this vegetable. With a microwave, broccoli will warm themselves with water contained therein. Broccoli in the microwave heating is estimated to save more than 90 percent of the nutrients in it.
