Cauliflower what does the prefix -cauli- mean?

'Cauli' as the prefix in cauliflower, means cabbage.

This vegetable was originally called, in Britain, a cole florye, from the Italian cavoli fiori, meaning 'flowered cabbage'. (fiori is from the Latin flora)

The old French name for this flowered cabbage was a chou fleuri, but, in this instance, it seems that the English word derived more from the Germanic and Italian, rather than from the French.

The English word 'cabbage' is from the Latin caulis,which basically means stem or stalk. Later, caulisalso became the Latin name for the cabbage plant.

The Latin word caulis became kohl (cole) in German, as in cole-slaw. 'Caulis' is also the root word for the Scottish word kale.


So caulis became cole which became cauli.

Is cauliflower good for you?

Yes, cauliflower is good for you.

It is low in fat, high in dietary fiber, folate, water and vitamin C, possessing a very high nutritional density. It also contains several phytochemicals which are beneficial to human health, including sulforaphane, an anti-cancer compound released when cauliflower is chopped or chewed.

Boiling reduces the levels of anti-cancer compounds, with losses of 20-30% after five minutes, 40-50% after ten minutes, and 75% after thirty minutes. However, other preparation methods such as steaming, microwaving, and stir frying had no significant effect on the compounds.

Cauliflower is a source of indole-3 carbinol, a chemical which boosts DNA repair in cells and appears to block the growth of cancer cells. The compound also appears to work as an anti-estrogen, appearing to slow or prevent the growth of tumors of the breast and prostate.

Cauliflower also contains other glucosinolates besides sulfurophane, substances which may improve the liver's ability to detoxify carcinogenic substances.
