After food processing, mastication is the first step that is likely to cause cell disruption and release of the phytochemical glycoside. , the glucosinolates, are not biologically active per se but serve as precursors for a range of bioactive compounds. Depending on the degree of cell disruption, glucosinolates are released and hydrolyzed by an enzyme, myrosinase, that co-occurs with its substrate. In the intact plant material, both enzyme and substrate are compartmentalized at cellular level; however, once cellular integrity is disrupted, enzyme and substrate interact, leading to formation of the aglycon—generally the active component.
