Protein in Broccoli

A health/cooking magazine describes broccoli as a "very good source of protein." 


"Very good source" is not a defined nutrient claim, but let's assume it would mean a better source than "good source," which can be used to describe a food that contains at least 10% of the Daily Value for that nutrient. For protein, that would be 5 grams (10% of 50 g) in an 85 g serving (FDA-defined serving). Broccoli, however, only contains about 2.4 grams of protein per serving -- hardly a good source, much less a "very good source" of protein.
