Sprouting (germination): sprouting process changes a dormant grain into a living food. It increases the protein, mineral, vitamin and fiber content of the grains. The nutritional qualities of the sprouted grains are bio active and are easily absorbed by our body.
Sprouted ragi (finger millet) flour has increased protein, dietary fiber and enhanced iron bio availability when compared to un sprouted ragi flour. Ragi is one of the abundant sources of calcium among plant foods. Additionally, it exhibits anti-microbial and anti-ulcerative properties. It is naturally gluten-free.
Traditionally, ragi is used in management of diabetes and as a weaning food for infants. It is rich in polyphenols (micro-nutrients) which are helpful in prevention and management of lifestyle diseases like diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular diseases.
