Food Talk – Sprouted Brown Rice – It’s like regular brown rice, but better

Everyone interested in their health, knows the benefits of eating brown rice. A recently popular grain is making itself known and stand out amongst the healthy grain family. Sprouted brown rice, it looks, feels and needs to be cooked for the same amount of time as the regular brown rice. It is a low saturated-fat, salt free and gluten free grain which sources protein, Vitamin B, Vitamin B6 and is also high in magnesium. The difference is noticeable only once it’s cooked, sprouted brown rice has a sweeter taste, is less chewy and is more delicate than regular brown rice.

Brown rice is a less processed whole grain which can be a nourishing food in your diet. Unfortunately, like all grains, brown rice contains phytic acid, and this acid blocks the absorption of the good required nutrients. This is where sprouted brown rice comes in to save the day. Not only does the sprouted brown rice contain all the nutrients found in regular brown rice, it also holds the amino acid ‘GABA’ (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid), which is created during the sprouting process. Once the brown rice is sprouted, it becomes a lot easier to digest and has more bio-available nutrients.

Nutritionists at India Gate say that, “one of the many great positives of Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA), is that it enhances focus, relieves some menopause symptoms, lowers blood pressure, improves brain function, prevents headaches, relieves constipation, regulates blood sugar and increases memory retention. Such benefits are exactly what makes it the perfect side to serve, great for people of all ages, young and old.”

Since it is cooked the same way brown rice is, the variety of dishes you can prepare using sprouted brown rice, are endless. Whether you are looking for healthier options for your kids or for yourself, this is a great grain to introduce to your cooking. Create a healthy and delicious breakfast porridge for your kids or yourself using sprouted brown rice. Its creamy texture can be paired with lots of flavors, such as season fruits and honey which makes it a great breakfast food. For lunch and dinner, you can use recipes for vegetarian, vegan, diabetic, gluten-free and low-fat dishes, whether it be in your biryani, chicken Pad Thai or even a sprouted brown rice and herb salad.

For those who worry that their favorite dishes won’t taste the same, rest assured, you can enjoy any recipe just as much, if not more, by substituting your usual grain to the healthy and delicious sprouted brown rice.
