as far as vegetables go such as broccoli or cauli flower which contains more of the fiber and nutrients, the florrets (top leafy part) or the stem stock of the vegetable.

From a completely anecdotal point of view, it seems to me that the stem is the more fibrous part, not sure about the other nutrients.

Why do you ask? :)

just wondering.. hehe I started buying the whole spear from the farmers market rather then packaged florrets.

i think the florets might have more of the phytonutrients. i don't remember where i read that though.
