Sprouting the grains you eat is a healthy treat for your body
It's a fact that sprouting increases the nutritional value by leaps and bounds as the process boosts vitamins, minerals and antioxidants; there is an increase in the concentration of key nutrients like B vitamins, vitamin C, and folate.
In fact, a study done at the Central Food Technological Research Institute in Mysore, India, measured the changes caused by sprouting finger millet (ragi), wheat and barley.
They found that sprouting millets increased the bio-accessibility of iron (> 300 per cent) and manganese (17 per cent), and calcium ("marginally").
The food also becomes of lower GI (Glycemic Index) and better digestible due to the enzyme activity that peaks during sprouting, and the starchy carbs in the seed on sprouting get converted into energy, so the resulting sprouted food has a higher ratio of protein and fibre to carbs.
Today I m focusing on Ragi sprouts - nachni - finger millet
The once well-known cereal is however totally absent in most people’s diets today. Ragi is high in protiens, rich source of minerals like Calcium, phosphorus, potassium and iron. They are also rich in antioxidants. It controls diabetes, reduces “bad” cholestrol, prevents cardiovascular diseases, keeps us young.
