If broccoli turns yellow does the nutritional value decrease?

 

Q. If broccoli turns yellow does it still have any nutritional value?

 

A. Broccoli that is turning yellow is past its peak freshness and will start to slowly lose nutrients. Try to use it while it is fresh and still green. To keep it fresh, refrigerate in a plastic bag and use within 3-5 days.
